Get ready for a vibrant, magical, and musical adventure in Encanto. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 60th feature film takes a journey to Colombia, where we meet “extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto.”
All of the Madrigals have unique magical gifts except Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz), but when the magic of Encanto falls into danger, Mirabel discovers she might just be her family’s last hope.
Directed by Zootopia’s Jared Bush and Byron Howard, and co-directed by Charise Castro Smith (writer “The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez”), the film includes original music from Lin-Manuel Miranda and is earning strong reviews as a “heartwarming celebration of family,” which means it’s an ideal pick to gather ’round with love ones during the holidays.
But Disney’s movie releases have been a bit unpredictable this year, so we’ve put together a helpful guide to where it’s in theaters, when it’s on Disney+, and how to stream the soundtrack online after those delightful new songs get stuck in your head.
When Is Encanto in Theaters?
Encanto arrived in U.S. theaters on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, launching in 3,700 theaters nationwide. Disney’s new animated movie is striving for a $35-40 million domestic opening at the box office (taking home $1.5 million in Tuesday previews) and $70 million worldwide.
Internationally, the film also arrived in several major territories, including Brazil, the U.K., Germany, Canada, and South Korea on November 24 and arrives in most worldwide markets by November 26, excepting the Philippines (December 8) and Hong Kong (December 16).

Considering Walt Disney Animation Studios’ last film, Raya and the Last Dragon, was immediately available to streaming with Disney+ Premier Access – not to mention the fact that Disney’s previous two Pixar movies launched directly on Disney+ – it’s understandable if you expected this one to stream day-and-date with the theatrical release, but this time, Disney is holding firm to its theatrical exclusive… for now.
When Will Encanto Be on Disney+?
Here’s the good news, Encanto already has a Disney+ release date: it arrives on streaming on December 24, 30 days after its theatrical debut. Consider it a Christmas Eve gift to all who celebrate, or maybe just an opportunity to get some new favorite Disney songs stuck in your head just in time for the new year.
