"Encanto" Set to Premiere on Freeform's '31 Nights of Halloween


Get ready for a magical Halloween season! In an exciting announcement, ABC confirmed that "Encanto" will be making its Freeform premiere on October 22 at 7:35 p.m. EDT/PDT. This enchanting Disney film is part of the channel's annual '31 Nights of Halloween' event, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

From October 1 to October 31, Freeform is set to cast a spell over viewers with a collection of Halloween films that range from timeless classics to contemporary gems. The lineup includes audience favorites like "Hocus Pocus," "Monsters, Inc.," and "The Addams Family." Notably, this year marks the 30th anniversary of "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas," which is also included in the programming.

Additionally, viewers can look forward to the Freeform premieres of "ZOMBIES" and "ZOMBIES 2," along with "Encanto." While it may seem unusual to include "Encanto" in a Halloween lineup, its inclusion signals an effort to incorporate more Disney films into the event. This move is likely to be well-received by viewers, as Disney's magic is known to transcend seasons and genres.

Last year's "31 Nights of Halloween" event propelled Freeform to the No. 1 ranking among primetime cable networks in entertainment across Adults 18-34, Women 18-34, and Women 18-49 (excluding news and sports). As such, this year's event is anticipated to draw a similarly large viewership, especially with the added allure of new premieres.

Don't miss out on this spooktacular event! Tune in to Freeform throughout October to enjoy a bewitching blend of Halloween classics and Disney magic.
