A portion of Movieguide®’s review of ENCANTO reads

ENCANTO is a lively animated musical from Disney. Mirabel is a 15-year-old teenager living in an isolated magical village in Columbia where every child who turns five receives a magical gift. Every child, that is, except her. Mirabel tries to keep a stiff upper lip about this situation, but she’s unhappy about it and has begun to grow resentful toward her older, beautiful, gifted sister who’s about to marry. Mirabel has a vision of their magical house breaking apart. She fears the family’s magic is in danger, but none of her family believes her, especially her grandmother. So, Mirabel decides to find out what’s happening and find a way to fix it.

ENCANTO is beautifully produced. The story and characters are funny, lively, exciting, and heartfelt. The animation is vibrant and lovely. ENCANTO sounds like it could be filled with witchcraft, but the movie states that family is the real magic. It contains overt Christian references, themes, images, and symbolism, which form the backdrop to the story and the magical plot. ENCANTO paints a rich, rewarding, heartwarming portrait of an extended family.

Here is the list across all mediums: 

  1. Cobra Kai
  2. Encanto
  3. Don’t Look Up (2021)
  4. The Witcher
  5. Emily In Paris
  6. Cocomelon
  7. NCIS 
  8. Criminal Minds
  9. The Wheel of Time
  10. Seinfeld
