Directors Jared Bush and Byron Howard (Zootopia) helped conceive this original animated musical about a family who live in a magical house in a remote village in Colombia. When their home begins to lose its magic, Mirabel—the only family member with no special powers—struggles to save her home, her family, and her entire village. Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the film’s lively songs, including the nominated “Dos Oruguitas” and the massive hit “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.” The film won an Animated Feature Film Oscar and was also nominated for Germaine Franco’s original score.

Drop-in Workshop for Families

The Education team invites families to join museum educators every month to be inspired by the museum’s exhibitions and screenings to learn, create, and have fun! 

Our August Drop-In Workshops for Families are inspired by two films in our ongoing Family Matinees film series, The Princess and the Frog (2009) and Encanto (2021). What do these two films have in common? Food! Food plays key roles in both films.
