Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Encanto, with all-new songs by award-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, tells the tale of the Madrigals, an extraordinary family living in a magical house in the mountains of Colombia. But when Mirabel, the only ordinary Madrigal, discovers the magic surrounding their home is in danger, she may be her family’s last hope.

That is a long digital to physical window!

And why is the aspect ratio 1.85:1 on physical but 2.39:1 on digital? Theatrical aspect ratio was 1.85:1, So I think the 2.39 is a typo.

They are also debuting it on Disney+ on December 24, so there would be very little reason for people to make a digital purchase. I loved the film and will be buying the disc as soon as it is available, but I expect to play it on Disney+ in the interim.

It looks like a fairly standard stack of supplements for a Disney release, but I'm still excited to go through those. It continues to be too bad that Disney Animation hasn't had an audio commentary on one of their new releases films in ages. This isn't much of a surprise, but I would have listened to one if it was included.

I hope there will be a steelbook and am curious to see what that art will be.

Part of the reason may be that most of the newer commentary tracks I have heard on recent releases from other studios has been the poor audio quality of the Zoom or Skype recordings. The same thing, basically, about several featurettes that have relied to heavily on new interviews conducted in that same manner. Sadly, not everyone has a decent internet connection or microphone at home.

Good point, but I don't think that is the case here. I buy almost all of Disney Animation's releases and the last one I recall that had a commentary on it was The Princess and the Frog which came to disc in 2010. Meanwhile, Pixar has continued to do commentaries for every film except Luca. So I think it is a Disney Animation decision not to do that. I was never expecting one, but would always like to be surprised.

Pre-orders have gone up, including for retailer-specific editions.

Best Buy has their customary steelbook.

Target has exclusive lithographs and what looks like a different slipcover.


Wal-Mart has an exclusive pin of the house. It looks like the actual Blu-ray will be the same as the regular 4K release though.


I locked in my (very expensive) pre-order of the steelbook. I paid $34.99 for Raya and the Last Dragon last year, so $39.99 is an increase. It's a good thing I don't get steelbooks too often.

Best Buy now has the steelbook listed as "coming soon" and is no longer taking pre-orders for that edition. I'm glad I got my order in early.
