If this is true, it looks like Byron Howard might not be the director.

Never mind, that's probably bullshit.


According to twitter:




Byron Howard is working on a musical.

According to our sources, the film is tentatively titled Encanto (could change as Raya and the Last Dragon was originally titled Dragon Empire) and is centered on a young girl and her family in Brazil, who all have magical powers, sadly, the young girl has no powers.


Disney staple Lin-Manuel Miranda (Mary Poppins Returns) is writing the music, with Clark Spencer (Ralph Breaks the Internet) and Yvett Merino Flores (Moana) on board to produce. As well as directing the film alongside Byron Howard, Jared Bush will co-write the screenplay with Charise Castro Smith. Smith has previously written and produced episodes of The Haunting of Hill House.

Honestly, I'll have a bit of a grudge against this movie if it causes the Zootopia sequel to come out in 2027.

I mean, you were probably close to the truth ahaha

But Zootopia+ should help in 2022/2023 ^^

It's a November release so a first trailer might come soon, right?

Trailer releases work differently since the beginning of the pandemic. We don't even have a trailer for Vivo and that's supposed to be released in less than two months! Right now, we get trailers for theatrical releases like 1-2 months in advance, similar to trailers for streaming releases.
