“Encanto” tells the tale of an extraordinary family, the Madrigals, who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia, in a magical house, in a vibrant town, in a wondrous, charmed place called an Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal—every child except one, Mirabel. But when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is in danger, Mirabel decides that she, the only ordinary Madrigal, might just be her exceptional family’s last hope.
According to Howard, each of the Madrigal children receive their gifts during a special ceremony. “As each child turns 5,” he says, “a door is produced in their house that opens to an enchanted space. It reveals their magical gift and therefore what their role will be in this family and how they’ll serve the community.”
Mirabel’s middle sister, Luisa, for example, is strong and powerful—the rock of the family, with the gift of super strength that she uses to serve the community by relocating livestock, moving a building or rerouting a river. Isabela, Mirabel’s oldest sister, is the golden child of the family, the perfect one who’s been gifted with the ability to make plants grow and flowers bloom with every step she takes. Isabela’s grace and beauty enchant everyone except Mirabel who struggles to relate to her seemingly perfect persona and charmed life.
