‘Zootopia’ Directors Are Working on a New Disney Film with Music from Hamilton‘s Lin Manuel-Miranda. According to The DisInsider, a new project is underway at Walt Disney Studios and filmmakers from films such as Zootopia, Moana, Ralph Breaks the Internet and more are working together to make some Disney magic on screen. The working project is currently being called ‘Encanto‘, which translates to Charm in English.
A tentative outline for the film follows a young girl and her family who live in Brazil. While her family members all have magical powers the young girl possesses no powers of her own.
Currently working on ‘Encanto‘ is composer Lin-Manuel Miranda (Mary Poppins Returns, Moana, Hamilton), with Clark Spencer (Ralph Breaks the Internet) and Yvett Merino Flores (Moana) who are producers for the project. Directors Byron Howard and Jared Bush (Zootopia) will work on the screenplay with Charise Castro Smith (The Haunting of House Hill).
No official release date has been announced at this time, but likely ‘Encanto‘ will fill either the November 24, 2021 Disney Animated Feature slot or the November 23, 2022 slot if the project is in its infancy.
