This massive hit was released in 2021 and “We Don’t’ talk about Bruno”, a theme song from its soundtrack became the first song from a Disney movie to reach No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart since 1993.

Our team absolutely loved this film, and we wanted to share with you the specific reasons why: 
- The Colombian references like palm trees, mountains and animals like the jaguar and the chiguire
- Listening to the Cali-style salsa created by fellow Latinos Carlos Vives & Lin Manuel Miranda
- The movie showcases how Arepitas can cure anything – just ask Mirabel 😊
- The focus on the importance of family and self acceptance
We are so proud of seeing our culture play in the big screen and having people from other nationalities enjoy it was much as we do!
