Last month we told you about the special event featuring the music of “Encanto” performed live at the Hollywood Bowl,” and now Disney+ has announced it will be recording both nights for an “Encanto at the Hollywood Bowl” special that will debut on the streamer in December 2022.
“Encanto: An Immersive Live-To-Film Concert Experience” will take place at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, the weekend of November 11 and 12, 2022.
This special Disney concert event will feature favorite songs from the film “Encanto” performed live by members of the original cast accompanied by a 50-person ensemble, a full live orchestra, and some very special guests, including Carlos Vives and Andrés Cepeda.
Conductor Anthony Parnther will lead the full orchestra performing the film’s score and cherished songs live-to-picture, and a Colombian band, featuring musicians from the original soundtrack, will accompany the orchestra.
Among the cast scheduled to appear are Stephanie Beatriz (voice of Mirabel), Adassa (voice of Dolores), Carolina Gaitan (voice of Pepa), Angie Cepeda (voice of Julieta), Mauro Castillo (voice of Felix), Diane Guerrero (voice of Isabela), and Jessica Darrow (voice of Luisa).
Tickets are still available for both performances if you want to attend in person.
“Encanto at the Hollywood Bowl” will be filmed during both of the performances at the Hollywood Bowl, and will feature a special introduction by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote the original songs for the film.
“We are so excited for this incredibly prolific concert event that is bringing together award-winning talent and some of the best storytellers in the world. With our partners at Walt Disney Animation Studios, Disney Concerts, Fulwell 73 Productions, AMP Worldwide and Live Nation-Hewitt Silva, the music of ‘Encanto’ will come to life in a must-see way that rivals the likes of the biggest award-show performances, and we’re so thrilled audiences across the world can experience the spectacle from wherever they are on Disney+,” says Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television.
This all-new original special will be available to stream starting on Wednesday, December 28, 2022, only on Disney+.
