Disney’s Encanto is taking the world by storm. People everywhere just can’t seem to get enough of it.
For one little boy, it was a total dream come true because This 2-Year-Old Boy Thought An Encanto Character Was Him and It Is The Most Wholesome Thing You’ll See Today!
2-year-old Kenzo was watching Encanto with his family when he noticed one of the characters, a young boy named Antonio, looked very much like him.
Kenzo’s mom Kah, posted the moment on Instagram (which went viral) and said it made her happy that her son noticed and was able to feel seen.
“He seemed to be in awe, just smiling and staring at the screen,” she told POPSUGAR. “Then he stood up and looked back at his dad and me, still smiling. For him, I truly believe that he thought he was seeing himself because of the resemblance between him and Antonio.”Source
“As a mom, I’m always trying to capture ‘these’ moments,” she said. “I was amazed at his reaction. It just truly made me smile and my heart happy.”Source
THIS! This is exactly why these movies matter. Kids feel special, represented and seen and that has so much power and value.
I love this so much and if you haven’t watch Encanto with your kids yet, you should go watch it right now!
