Where I Got It: Disney+

A young Colombian woman has to face the frustration of being the only member of her family without magical powers.

Okkkkkkaaaayyyy....I've watched this three times now. LOL. It all started when I hung out with my friend and her baby. hehe. 

We follow Mirabel who is part of a magical family and lives in a magical house. However...she was not gifted with a gift. She is the black sheep who loves her family so much but she feels like she is never good enough for her Grandmother. When things start going wrong and the magic seems to be breaking, she decides she is going to save her family and their magic. 

This was such a fun movie, but it has all the feels. 

I felt so bad for Mirabel. She just loves her family so much even her one sister who is a perfect Golden child and her grumpy Grandma. Poor girl. I can't imagine being literally the only one in the family with no powers. I do love how they finally (not a spoiler bc you know it's a Disney flick that always has a HEA) realize she IS the gift. Without Mirabel they would be lost. 

Poor Bruno too. :/ 

The music is great! All of them. I love dancing along with the music!! 

If I was to point to one thing....the ending left me a tiny bit sad. BUT I get the symbolism and etc. SO I won't hold it against the movie. I get it, but I was hopeful for something else. 

In the end, this is a great new Disney movies. Great cast. Great music. Great story. You will feel all the feels. Joy, humor, sadness, anger. All of them. 5 stars from me.

I was just telling the girl we should watch this one again. We did back at Christmas time and I feel like we just didn't fully get into it. So many love it and we were like "it's okay" The music and colors are fun.

I like this one too. Apparently there's a funny meme going around about the We Don't Talk About Bruno song ;-)
