When asked if he wants a theme park attraction or a Colombia pavilion at EPCOT, Miranda said, “Well, I took my kids to Disneyland for the first time pre-pandemic a few years ago. And we sat through The Little Mermaid thing five times in a row. That’s where my brain goes. It’s like, I want to go in and out of this casita and see those characters and see the house respond because that’s something Disney can do that no one else can do. But yeah, in terms of the world of the characters, it’s really early days on that. I don’t know what that will be.”
In response to CEO Bob Chapek referring to “Encanto” as a “franchise,” Miranda said he spoke to Chapek and said, “I know there’s a world in which this casita lives in a theme park and we get to actually walk through it in real life.” He also pointed out that there could be a second movie, TV series, or stage adaptation.
