Alan Tudyk Joins Disney’s ‘Encanto’ Voice Cast

Alan Tudyk has joined the voice cast of Disney’s “Encanto.”  He will be voicing the character of Pico the Toucan in the film. Pico is the lovable animal sidekick to main character Mirabel Madrigal (Brooklyn 99’s Stephanie Beatriz).

Director Jared Bush shared the news on Twitter which you can see below:

Tudyk is famously known as the voice behind droid K2SO in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and he also returned to voice the character of Lago in Disney’s 2019 live-action version of Aladdin.  He can be seen next as Mr. Darling in the upcoming Peter Pan & Wendy film coming to theaters in 2022.

Latin superstar Maluma was also recently announced to voice a character in “Encanto.”  He will play Mariano in the film.

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ upcoming feature film “Encanto” tells the tale of the Madrigals, an extraordinary family who live in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto. Each child has been blessed with a magic gift unique to them—each child except Mirabel. But when the family’s home is threatened, Mirabel may be their only hope.

The voice cast includes Stephanie Beatriz as Mirabel; María Cecilia Botero as Mirabel’s grandmother Alma aka Abuela; John Leguizamo as Bruno; Angie Cepeda and Wilmer Valderrama as Mirabel’s parents, Julieta and Agustín; and Diane Guererro and Jessica Darrow as Mirabel’s sisters, Isabela and Luisa. Also lending their voices are Carolina Gaitán and Mauro Castillo as Mirabel’s aunt and uncle, Pepa and Félix; and Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz and Ravi Cabot-Conyers as Mirabel’s cousins Dolores, Camilo and Antonio, respectively.

The film features all-new songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton,” “Moana”) and is directed by Byron Howard (“Zootopia,” “Tangled”) and Jared Bush (co-director “Zootopia”), co-directed by Charise Castro Smith (writer “The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez”) and produced by Clark Spencer and Yvett Merino. Bush and Castro Smith are screenwriters on the film.

Disney’s “Encanto” arrives in theaters and cinemas on November 24, 2021 and on Disney+ on December 24, 2021.
