(2021) (voices of Stephanie Beatriz, Maria Cecilia Botero) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Computer-Animated Musical: A family where all but one is blessed with magical abilities must contend with that magic suddenly waning.
Ever since fleeing a town long ago with her husband and three young children, Abuela Alma Madrigal (voice of MARIA CECILIA BOTERO) has presided over a manor in the Columbian mountains that's filled with magic. So much so that when any family member comes of a certain age, the manor imbues them with a specific magical gift, with the next in line being young Antonio (voice of RAVI-CABOT CONYERS), the son of Felix (voice of MAURO CASTILLO) and Pepa (voice of CAROLINA GAITAN) -- the latter whose emotions play out as weather events -- and sibling to shapeshifter Camilo (voice of RHENZY FELIZ) and Dolores (voice of ADASSA) who hears everything.
None of this is lost on teenager Mirabel (voice of STEPHANIE BEATRIZ) -- sister to the perfect Isabela (voice of DIANE GUERRERO) who can cause flowers to grow and has drawn the eye of handsome bachelor Mariano (voice of MALUMA), and Luisa (voice of JESSICA DARROW) who's endowed with super strength -- who somehow was passed over for the magic. With her uncle, Bruno (voice of JOHN LEGUIZAMO), having had a troubling vision of the girl before he disappeared years ago, Mirabel is something of the black sheep of the family although she's loved by her mom, Julietta (voice of ANGIE CEPEDA), who can heal things instantly, and dad, Agustin (voice of WILMER VALDERRAMA).
When the manor's magic begins to wane and affects some of the family members, Abuela Alma blames Mirabel. But with her wanting to preserve all of that, the teen sets out to discover what's happening and how her long-absent uncle might be involved.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- It's a computer-animated offering from Disney, so it's a good bet many will.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For some thematic elements and mild peril.
