Walt Disney Animation Studios has been delivering charming animated feature films to the masses since 1937.

The film has been largely praised by critics for its animation style, diversity and "spellbinding" songs.

"Disney's 60th animated feature is among their best," said Scott Mendelson in his review of the film for Forbes.

"The computer animation, some of the best from any major studio in the last several years, presents a dazzling confabulation of hues and a meticulous weaving of precious details — like the embroidery on skirts, the golden-brown crust of a cheese arepa and the selection of native Colombian flora," said Maya Phillips, a writer for The New York Times.

"From 'Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs' to 'Raya And The Last Dragon,' Walt Disney Animation Studios has spent the past eight decades perfecting its signature riff on the classic hero's journey," wrote Caroline Siede in her review of the film for AV Club.

"And the whole picture is intricate and accomplished enough to make the era when your average Disney house animated feature was several tiers below that of Pixar seem like ancient history," Gleiberman wrote.

While Mendelson criticized Miranda's songs as often repeating information already provided to the audience, he said Disney smartly used the film to not only introduce diverse characters but to tell a unique story

"Mirabel joins the ranks among one of the more realized Disney heroines, partially because she's not required to hit 'bad-ass female warrior who isn't your everyday princess' notes," he said
