To celebrate the opening of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 60th feature film, “Encanto,” in U.S. theaters today now, a new clip featuring the original song “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”—written by Tony®- and GRAMMY®-winning songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “Moana”)—is now available. The song, performed by voice cast members Carolina Gaitán (voice of Pepa), Mauro Castillo (voice of Félix), Adassa (voice of Dolores), Rhenzy Feliz (voice of Camilo), Diane Guerrero (voice of Isabela), Stephanie Beatriz (voice of Mirabel) & cast is a family gossip song, according to Miranda. “Every verse and every stanza introduce a different character,” he said. “They’re all riding the same musical landscape, but they ride it completely differently. Everyone sings the same chord progression with a totally different rhythm and a totally different cadence.”

John Leguizamo lends his voice to Bruno in the film. The character, who’s gifted with the ability to see the future, has made honest but often doomsaying predictions that have proved problematic for the family, so he disappeared, becoming the uncle nobody talks about—unless, of course, somebody talks about Bruno—in song. “I think every family has stories you’re not allowed to talk about—we all have land mines inside our families,” said Miranda. “The more forbidden something is, the more you want to talk about it.”

From Walt Disney Records, the Encanto Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features eight original songs by Miranda with original score by award-winning composer Germaine Franco (“Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” “Little,” “Tag”). The physical soundtrack will be available on Dec. 17 and is available for pre-order.
