The first trailer for Charm, the latest animated film from Walt Disney Animation Studios is full of magic. The upcoming film takes place in a magical village in Colombia, and it focuses on the Madrigal family, who each have their own gifts, such as shapeshifting, plant growth or super strength. Even the house is enchanted and dances together in step with everyday life.
Well, everyone except Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz), that is, who alone in her family has no special powers. Drama probably follows, though the first teaser is not too forthcoming what the actual story here is.
However, the film looks spectacular, especially with Madrigal’s house stealing the show with its vibrant colors and unique architecture. In Disney tradition, Charm is also a musical with songs from the EGOT hunt Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Charm is ready for theaters on November 24, making it the first major Disney animated film not to be released directly to Disney Plus since theaters first shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The studio has spent the past year and a half switching almost all of its major animated releases from both Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar – including Soul, Lucaand Raya and the last dragon – either directly to its streaming service or with simultaneous releases in both theaters and on Disney Plus.
