Meeting the Madrigals at our special movie screenings
Thousands of Girlguiding members took over ODEON screens to experience the magic of Disney’s Encanto
Earlier this month, nearly 35,000 members gathered from all over the country to meet the fantastical Madrigal family, and experience Mirabel’s story.
We were excited to meet such a vibrant, colourful set of new characters, and had a great time tapping our toes to the Colombian-inspired music! We loved the message of the film, and how much there was for girls to relate to.
Before the film, we even saw a special Girlguiding trailer starring two or our wonderful advocates. Kate and Alice interviewed Jared Bush and Charise Castro-Smith – the writers and co-directors of the film – and asked them lots of questions about the inspiration behind the story.
Watch the full version of our trailer.
And what did we think of the film?
