Just like with Raya and Luca, this was fine, but not extraordinary. I liked it just a tad more than those two thanks to the addition of songs and the lack of Raya’s obnoxious out of place TikTok generation humor. But the story again felt kinda shapeless and just more of 90 minutes of feel good vibes. Something I’ve noticed Disney films lack lately are strong villainous characters to really give the story some drama and clear stakes. I’m pretty sure the last time this happened was way back in Tangled. After that we either had the twist villain, no villain, or the mildly threatening person who is redeemed at the end. The songs in this were easily the weakest I’ve heard from Lin-Manuel and a huge step down from Moana. But hey, it was cute and pleasant and beautiful to look at. Love Latin culture!

6 out of 10

Here’s how I would rank Disney’s animated films since Tangled:

1. Tangled
2. Moana
3. Wreck-It Ralph
4. Winnie the Pooh (2011)
5. Zootopia
6. Frozen
7. Ralph Breaks the Internet (never understood the intense hate for this one)
8. Big Hero 6
9. Frozen II
10. Encanto
11. Raya and the Last Dragon
