You can talk Bruno all you want when an “Encanto” movie/concert tour hits three cities in North Carolina.
The Oscar-winning film will screen in 32 cities across the country in major theaters and outdoor amphitheaters, Disney and Live Nation announced Tuesday.
The film will feature a live band performing all the popular songs from the soundtrack, including “The Family Madrigal,” “Surface Pressure,” the Oscar-nominated “Dos Oruguitas” and the record “We are not talking about Bruno”.
The promoters note that “living characters do not appear as part of this event”.
The tour begins July 18 in Washington State before heading to the PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte on August 10. the White Oak Amphitheater at Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro on Aug. 13; and the Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek in Raleigh on August 14.
“Encanto” hits theaters in late 2021 and tells the story of the Colombian Madrigal family who all live in a magical house and have special powers – except for Mirabel (voiced by Stephanie Beatriz).
The film made its way to the Disney+ streaming service as the latest COVID-19 variant sent cases and hospitalizations skyrocketing across the country.
There it found new life thanks to the keen observers and obsessed with catchy bops.
The soundtrack topped the Billboard 200 album chart for nine weeks while “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” was No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart for five weeks. The songs were written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who won Tonys and Grammys for his work.
