By Matt Neglia 

Disney’s “Encanto” is the 60th animated feature film from the studio and see’s Byron Howard and Jared Bush reunite after their successful collaboration on the Academy Award-winning “Zootopia.” With Charise Castro Smith added as a Co-Director and Co-Writer, the team has created a cultural joy that celebrates family, magic, and love. Along with actress Stephanie Beatriz (who voices the film’s lead character, Mirabel), the four of them were kind enough to spend a few minutes chatting with me about their work behind the Disney animated film. Take a listen down below and enjoy!
