How the Opening Song in Encanto was Animated

On Instagram, Disney animator Jonah Sidhom revealed his process of animating the famous family scene in the opening song of the Disney film "Encanto."

To avoid getting overwhelmed, he started with the most basic cubes to represent the various family members. Then, he figured out poses for everyone to land in. He emphasized the shape of the letter M to represent the Madrigal family. He mentioned that his reference is never 1:1 with timing, but he used it to determine movement and foot placements.

At the end of his post, Sidhom gave a shout out to dance consultant Kai Martinez who helped him with the dance elements. Martinez also suggested the amazing idea of revealing Abuela with the mom's skirts which was immediately approved by the directors.
