Not every animated Disney movie has been a hit with audiences in the past few years — but the movie Encanto, which takes place in Colombia and came to Disney+ for its premiere last Christmas, has certainly made an impression on many Disney fans (not to mention Lin-Manuel Miranda fans).
One of the biggest highlights of Encanto was the soundtrack, followed closely by the award-winning voice actors’ performances in the Disney film. Now, Disney fans are getting the best of both worlds as the original voice cast reunites to sing their catchy songs in this year’s Hollywood Bowl Concert on Disney+ — and we have gotten a sneak peek of the voice cast’s performance!
Songs like “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” have been performed live before — but this time, almost all of the movie’s cast are donning their characters’ costumes and playing their roles in person for the live-to-concert Hollywood Bowl special! Take a look at the cast in their costumes in the Instagram post shown below!
Unfortunately, Bruno and another popular member of the Family Madrigal are not present for this particular concert — but everyone else is, including the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actress Stephanie Beatriz (who actually sang her character Mirabel’s power ballad while she was literally in labor), actress Jessica Darrow (whose husky jazz version of Luisa’s song “Surface Pressure” went viral), and singer Adassa (who plays Dolores).
“WELCOME TO THE FAMILY MADRIGAL! Take a look at a concert spectacular starring the original voice cast of Encanto,” the social media post reads. The concert is called Encanto at the Hollywood Bowl.

Many of the voice cast members look a lot like their characters, so this Encanto concert certainly looks convincing — and as we can see, the costumes and set design are stunning!
The December 28 release of the concert onto Disney+ cannot come soon enough in the eyes of many Encanto fans. We already saw the actress who plays Isabela, Diane Guerrero, wowing fans during the live taping of the concert back in November.
You can see a glimpse of that performance below, and glimpses of the voice cast’s talent like this one and the images we have seen this week are certainly getting audiences excited!
