Encanto has captured the hearts of millions across the world with its magical and heartfelt story and absolutely banging soundtrack, so is it a surprise people are talking spinoffs and sequels over at Disney?
I mean, who among us hasn’t listened to We Don’t Talk About Bruno and Surface Pressure several hundred times?
Speaking with Collider, the man who penned those earworms, Lin-Manuel Miranda, talked about what the future could bring for fans of Disney’s 60th animated feature.
Miranda hints that there’s an appetite to further explore the world of Encanto
Encanto is up for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song at this year’s Oscars.
Speaking at what the future may bring for the amazing Madrigals, Miranda said:
I do think there’s an appetite to further explore the Madrigal family, given how many characters there are, and how many gifts there are. And also where we leave the story. Now there is sort of this more fully realized version of themselves.
Asked about what form that would take, Miranda commented:
Is that another movie? A series? A stage adaptation where we have a little more time, because stage shows are generally an hour longer than movies? And we haven’t had conversations as to what form that will take, but I mean, yeah, I’d be down to continue to explore that.
It sounds like Miranda really wants to make it happen.
Lin-Manuel Miranda Teases Encanto Sequels And Spin Offs
Let’s just hope Disney give him the opportunity to write more irresistibly catchy tunes, because nobody does it better.
Now don’t mind me, I’m just off to play “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” once more, cos it’s an absolute banger.
Encanto is now available to stream on Disney+.
