We were able to attend a screening so I could share this Disney’s Encanto Parents Guide. All opinions are my own.
This is Walt Disney Animation Studio’s 60th feature film and they did an amazing job! Lin-Manuel Miranda did fantastic with the songs, the storyline was fun and easy to follow for the kids, but had good depth and meaning for older viewers. There is literally a character in this movie for everyone to relate to. There is also a great new short at the beginning that we all loved!
Overall I absolutely LOVE Encanto! It is so good – and has such a great message. You will walk out of the movie feeling happy and contemplative. And your kids will want the Encanto soundtrack as soon as your back in the car, lol. So maybe get it beforehand! lol
Encanto Parents Guide
Encanto is rated PG for some thematic elements and mild peril.
It runs for 1 hour and 39 minutes
There are no Encanto end credit scenes.
Sex & Nudity – None
Violence & Gore – It shows a mob scene and it insinuates a man dies and a woman crying. It can be a little emotional. No actual fighting or hurting is shown.
Profanity – None
Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking – One of the kids is drinking coffee – but it is funny the way it is written in
Frightening & Intense Scenes – A couple of the scenes with Bruno could be intense for very young viewers, but they are quickly made funny or deflect your attention to something else.

ABOUT DISNEY’S ENCANTO
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Encanto” tells the tale of an 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. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal—every child except one, Mirabel (voice of Stephanie Beatriz). But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.
The film is directed by Jared Bush (co-director “Zootopia”) and Byron Howard (“Zootopia,” “Tangled”), co-directed by Charise Castro Smith (writer “The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez”), and produced by Yvett Merino and Clark Spencer; the screenplay is by Castro Smith and Bush. “Encanto” features original songs by Emmy®, GRAMMY® and Tony Award® winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “Moana”); Germaine Franco (“Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” “Little,” “Tag”) composed the original score.
