"Encanto"

We watched it on streaming last night (Disney+)....we are not crazy enough to pay theater prices and go sit with a bunch of people who might have God knows what. Also needed it after a tough day...buried our priest, who died suddenly last week at the age of 52. (NOT Covid!)

Anyway, it was just what we needed and put us both to bed with smiles. Spousal unit is a geek-for-life and was totally wowed by the animation. Actually I was too; it's amazing and I couldn't help thinking how far it's come since Show White and Cinderella. I totally loved the music, of course, which is Lin-Manuel Miranda. And the message about what families should be and often aren't hit home too. Anyway, we definitely found it worthy of a watch and maybe even a re-watch.

3. I liked it a lot

The songs were great, it looked amazing, and I loved the whole "magical realism" nod to Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
My only complaint was that the ending kind of came crashing down too quickly. But it's up there with Moana and Coco for my favorite new Disney films.
