Encanto focuses on the Madrigals, who live in a charmed place called an Encanto. Stephanie Beatriz voices the role of Mirabel, a 15-year-old who’s struggling to find her place in her family.
“Mirabel is a really funny, loving character who also deeply yearns for something more,” says Beatriz, who was recently seen on screen as Carla in the film adaptation of Miranda's In the Heights. “She’s also not afraid to stand up for what she knows is right—something I love and relate to very much."
In addition to Encanto and In the Heights—as well as the recent Sony flick Vivo—Miranda has yet another movie musical on his 2021 roster: the film adaptation of tick, tick...BOOM!, marking his feature directorial debut. He is also co-writing new songs for Disney's upcoming live-action The Little Mermaid with original composer Alan Menken.
