Success! The “Encanto” animation topped the North American box office, debuting at No.1 for $ 40.3 million.
The production was closely followed by “Ghostbusters: Beyond,” which grossed $ 35.3 million in its second weekend. Together, the two films took 52% of the TOTAL box office for the extended Thanksgiving weekend.
Internationally, ‘Encanto’ totals US $ 29.3 million, for a global launch of US $ 69.6 million.
Remember that the animation is already showing in national cinemas.
Enchanting magic has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift, from super strength to healing power – every child except one: Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz). But when she discovers that the magic around town is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, may be her exceptional family’s last hope.
Jared Bush and Byron Howard (‘Zootopia’) are responsible for the production.
“Enchantment” will be the third Disney animation in the past five years to feature a non-Caucasian woman as the main character, following Moana (Polynesian) and Raya and the Last Dragon (Asian).
The feature film also includes original songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda (‘Hamilton’).
