Walt Disney Records has made the official soundtrack for “Encanto” available for purchase, featuring eight original songs written and composed by Lynn-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “In the Heights”), composed by composer German Franco (“). The full musical score is Dora and the Lost City of Gold, “” Little “), a reprise, and also the final credit version of one of the songs included in the film. Included songs include “Columbia, Me Ancanto” by artist Carlos Vives and “Dos Orugutas” sung by Sebastian Travel in both Spanish and English.

Miranda expressed her excitement about contributing to the music for the Columbia-set film:

“A lot of the rhythms are familiar to me, but the instrumentation and orchestration are different and often unique to Columbia. The most interesting thing is that the accordion is very central to the music. It was really fun to immerse myself in the artists I didn’t know and loved I’m diving deeper into what I grew up with – like Carlos Weaves, with whom we’re lucky enough to work in this movie. The whole process is about falling in love with Colombian music and culture and playing in that space. “

“Encanto” is directed by Jared Bush (co-director “Zutopia”) and Byron Howard (“Zutopia,” “Tangled”), co-directed by Cheris Castro Smith (“The Death of Eva Sophia Valdez”), and author Both Castro Smith and Bush.

The physical soundtrack will be available on December 17 and is available for pre-order, while “Encanto” will hit theaters on November 24, 2021. It will hit Disney + on December 24, 2021, one month later. Here is the official summary:

The Madrigals are an extraordinary family, hiding in the mountains of Columbia, in a magical home, in a vibrant town, in a wonderful, charming place called Encanto. Enchanto’s magic has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift ranging from super strength to healing – every child except one, Mirabel. But when she realizes that the magic around Enkanto is in danger, Mirabelle decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, may be the last hope of her extraordinary family.
