The movies of Disney they have been part of the childhood of many people around the world. Over time, we’ve come to relate various aspects to them: excellent animation, personable characters, and catchy songs from time to time. This, in large part, is what we receive with his new film, Charm.
For his sixtieth animated film, Disney presents us with a new journey full of magic, but this time to the enchanting lands of Colombia. What awaits you in Charm It is a story where family is paramount, there are songs that are very Latin and many twists of the screw.
The Madrigal family and its charm
As you will have seen in the advances, Charm tells us the story of Mirabel Madrigal and his peculiar family. Each of its members has a power that makes them unique: they can change their appearance, talk to animals or heal through food. Regrettably, Mirabel She is the only one who did not receive a gift like the rest.
This makes her the center of the entire plot of Charm, which puts her in a race to protect the magic that empowers her family members. This is not to say that the rest have nothing to do, as each member has their fun moments to shine.
Without going into spoilers it seems to me that Charm plays very well with the plot structure we come to expect from a Disney. When you think you know where things are going, something totally game-changing happens. In this regard, a rather atypical story was made to me for the study of Mickey Mouse, but that made me seem even more entertaining.
It also has a very good message that has a good chance of causing empathy with viewers, especially for those with large families. Not to mention that its Latin setting is very well achieved, and although it happens in Colombia, there were many things with which I felt identified. It seems that Latin American countries have a lot in common.
Latin rhythms reign here
Speaking of Latin America, the music of Charm it is full of characteristic rhythms of the region. There are even some that I felt like they got into the reggaeton field a little bit. The truth is that there are very varied songs, from the very funny to those with a touch of melancholy.
Although in my opinion they are not as sticky as others from the past of Disney, yes they are quite entertaining and well accomplished. The composer Lin-Manuel Miranda returns to work on the music of Charm after he was in charge of the songs in Moana. It seems to me that he had an excellent return to which he put all his effort.
That they did not seem sticky to me does not mean that they are bad, quite the opposite. Maybe I have this feeling because I felt that this time the songs are more designed to get into the thoughts of the characters. What I am sure of is that several of them will make you want to dance.
The music pairs nicely with the beautiful animation to give us some of the best footage of Disney. Given that Charm It happens in a more colorful place, the songs become veritable audiovisual spectacles full of color.
Encanto, a real movie for the whole family
After the little stumble he had with Frozen ii, Disney seems to be back creating animated classics with Stripe and Charm. His most recent creation gives us a very good message accompanied by everything we come to expect from the studio’s films.
Charm is full of humor, good animation and music, but gives a new air to Disney by playing with the elements of its plot. It seems to me that it is a film that is very worth watching and I would even recommend that you take your family. Following all security protocols, of course.
I hope that Disney Keep up this hot streak in the future and keep proving that animation is not something made just to be enjoyed by children. If it caught your attention you will see Charm In theaters from November 25. Will you give it a try?
