Screening as part of HeadFest 22, we’re delighted to bring Disney’s Encanto back to the big screen!

We are thrilled to be joined after the screening for a Panel Discussion with Assoc. Prof. Eunice Lumsden, Subject Leader in Childhood, Youth and Families at the University of Northampton, Dr Tanya Richardson, Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of Northampton, and Samantha Weekes, Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of Northampton.

The latest enchanting and vibrant animation from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Encanto, tells the tale of an extraordinary family.

The Madrigals live hidden in a magical house deep in the mountains of Colombia, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto.

The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift, from super strength to healing powers – every child except one – Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz).

But when Mirabel discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, she decides that, as the only ordinary Madrigal, she might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.

Written and directed by the team behind Zootropolis and featuring wonderful original songs by Lin-Manuel MirandaEncanto is not-to-be-missed.
