We may not talk about Bruno but we can definitely talk about Encanto, the Disney animated movie revolving around Colombian family, the Madrigals and their charmed home called the Encanto. The story focuses on Mirabel, who is the only person in the family who has not been bestowed a magical gift. Treated like the black sheep of the family, Mirabel is constantly made to feel like an outcast, however, after the magic surrounding the Encanto is threatened, she quickly realises she may be their only hope.

Based on the wickedly evil 101 Dalmatians character, Cruella de Vil, Cruella takes us back in time and provides the backstory of the Disney villain. With Emma Stone at the helm, the film is nothing short of magnificent. From the fashion to the thrilling plot, the movie helps us understand how Estella, a young and clever grifter, turned into Cruella — the woman who chooses to skin puppies for fur coats.
