Encanto’s storyline follows the family named Madrigal, who live in Encanto (a magical realm), the town was made by the candle of her grandmother, Alma, as she and her family escaped the home village they lived in Colombia to hide from the armed attackers.
Many of the musical numbers, including the record-breaking top song “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” are presented throughout the movie and the journey of the Madrigal family.
Encanto comes into the list of those few movies from Disney that were the first hit after the world was first coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time many theaters were no longer having the most strict social distancing restrictions during movie hours.
Even though the movie’s release at the global box office had a strong start and collected revenue of $250 million, Encanto only became popular and went “viral” just before Christmas after the release of the movie on Disney+ last year.
The song “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” became the first-ever Disney song that landed on the Top 200 charts of US Billboard in two years and which helped Encanto to become the very first movie by Disney that have a #1 album as well as a #1 song. Along with winning the Oscar at the Academy Awards, Encanto went on with winning the Best Animated Feature award at Golden Globes, and many other main awards show.
While “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” was not a nominee for any separate awards, it still got featured in the Academy Awards via a show-stopping performance that happened at this year’s ceremony.
Having a modern-world upgrade to the “it’s a small world” ride, including a short break from the melodious earworm song that usually plays during the entire journey, will give a fun surprise to children and their parents visiting the park in April. Nevertheless, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” is a catchy melody, conquering the ranking charts at No. 1.
It is the first Disney song to achieve this feat since “A Whole New World” back in 1992. The song’s maneuverability and adaptability, from its revised version starring Megan Thee Stallion at the Oscars to the ability of the original version to be listened to as an exclusive song on the radio, is one motive behind the choice to play it in the “it’s a small world” ride should throw some modernity into its appeal.
