“Encanto” continues to reap success and good news. According to Lin-Manuel Miranda, author of the songs of the movie set in Colombia, “Encanto” will have its own attraction in one of Disney’s parks.
Miranda told Insider that the Disney division that develops the parks is already working on the project to create a theme park attraction, of which he does not yet know the details.
“The Imagineers are on it,” he said. “I don’t know what they do or where they live, but I know they’re on it.”
Miranda said he would like to see a theme park attraction developed before “Encanto” gets a sequel or a TV series.
“It was funny because everyone’s like, ‘Will there be a sequel? Will there be a show?’ and I said, ‘I want a ride before I want any of that,'” he told Insider.
As Inside The Magic reported, Disney has already added “Encanto” experiences at some of its parks. A new Encanto-inspired garden has been unveiled as part of the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival. The garden will allow guests to explore a lush tropical garden inspired by the film (airing on Disney+) and its strong female characters such as Juliet, Isabella, Luisa, and Mirabel. They will also be able to stroll along a path inspired by the youngest member of the Madrigal family, Antonio.
In addition, for a limited time beginning earlier this month, the iconic facade of “it’s a small world” is enchanted several times each night with a short visual montage that pays homage to the film’s hit song, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”
Such has been the success of the film that Disney has also created the show “Encanto: The Sing-Along Film Concert Tour,” a 32-concert tour that, between July 18 and August 28, will take a screening of the film and a live band performing songs composed by Miranda to cities across the United States.
