Bring Home the Magic When Encanto Arrives on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ and DVD Tomorrow, February 8th #Encanto

Disclosure: I was sent a screener of this movie by the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Pre-order on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray or DVD from Amazon Today! 

If you haven't seen or heard about the new animated movie, Encanto, then you must be living under a rock, as this movie has blown up on OnDemand and over at Disney+.  My youngest daughter, like so many kids (and adults) is obsessed about this movie and its soundtrack. She can't go a day without sitting down and watching the movie, and/or playing songs from the film.  And, if you look at the Billboard charts, you will not be surprised when you see "We Don't Talk About Bruno" in the #1 spot, as it seems to be a song everyone is singing, or humming along to.  Just writing the song title now has this song in my is that catchy.  Come one, you know you have sung this exact song probably at least once today. :-)

This isn't going to be a review post about how great the movie is or why you need to see it, as you probably have already seen it countless times by now, since it released on Digital back on Dec. 24th, but instead as a reminder or PSA letting you know that starting tomorrow you will be able to own it on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD, so you can add this hit Disney movie to your family's growing movie collection.  And, for those who love to bring DVDs in the car for your kids to watch while out driving about, this is definitely one of those movies they will love watching time and again, and keep from asking you "Are we there yet?" But, we warned...there will be lots of singing along to these songs in the movie, so you will have to deal with that...or, join in and sing along.  :-)

When you pick up this movie tomorrow, if you haven't already pre-ordered it from Amazon or other retailers, make sure you check out all the great bonus features.  From sing alongs to hiliarous outtakes, deleted scenes and lots of inspiration featurettes about Columbia nd its culture, these bonus features are not to be missed.  I already have my DVD on pre-order from Amazon and can't wait to get it, so the girls can watch it on car rides, and bring to their grandparents to watch together this weekend when they go for a sleepover. This is one of heartwarming family-friendly movies that you will want to watch time and time and that delight kids and adults of all ages.  We love Encanto, and aren't afraid to talk about Bruno. :-)  If you haven't had a chance to see Encanto, then make sure you pick up a copy of this much talked about animated film from Disney, when it arrives on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD tomorrow. You will be glad you did!
