Viewers who’ve seen “Encanto” since its release just over two months ago haven’t been treated to a post-credits scene. But one of the directors of the feature film has just shared one and gave the reason why the scene in question had been removed from the final cut.
Encanto, the latest animated film from Disney studios
Since November 24, 2021, fans of Disney animated films can discover the new feature film of the genre signed by the famous studio. Encanto, the fantastic Madrigal family takes place in the Colombian mountains. More specifically in a magical place called “Encanto”. Each child of the Madrigal family received power there, with the exception of Mirabel. But soon, the magic of the Encanto finds itself threatened. The young girl then discovers that she may be her family’s only hope to save her.
The film directed by the trio Byron Howard – Jared Bush – Charise Castro Smith quickly met with great success upon its release (and also in the charts). In France, the film has already accumulated nearly three million entries.
But some viewers were disappointed not to see a post-credits scene at the end of Encanto. It must be said that it has become a habit at Disney since the MCU films. They often make it possible to offer a glimpse into the future of a saga, or simply to offer a last burst of laughter.
One of the directors of Encanto rectified that.
A short post-credits scene cut during editing
A few hours ago, Disney offered an event where fans could see Encanto online at the same time as members of the film. Shortly after, Jared Bush took the opportunity to share on his Twitter account a short post-credits scene from the film. This one was fully animated before finally being cut from the final cut. You can find it below.
Bush also revealed why the scene in question was cut from the final cut of Encanto. He explained that he and the two other directors were indeed planning to integrate it in the first place. But then they decided that “finishing the film on the emotion and joy of seeing the family reunite was the right thing to do. » The spectators were therefore able to leave the Madrigal family on a scene of emotion rather than a last moment of laughter.
