Camilo: In light of what you did for me, you may hug me for 4 to 5 seconds.
Antonio: FORTY-FIVE SECONDS?!
Camilo: NO FOUR TO FIVE-
Antonio: Too late (:
Antonio, running a lemonade stand with his animals: Tío Bruno, what would you like?
Bruno: Get me something as dark as my soul
Antonio: One pink lemonade coming up!
Bruno, tearing up: Thank you
Imagine going to Camilo’s house for dinner because all the Madrigals want to meet you
You and Camilo knew one another from school. You were in the same class and although you hadn’t really spent much time together you knew of one another. You knew Camilo because he was part of the most famous family in Colombia, not to mention his reputation as a hilarious prankster which made him well known throughout the school. Camilo knew of you because he’d had a crush on you for years. You were the only person he got nervous around and his confidence dried up whenever you looked at him with those piercingly beautiful eyes. So when the two of you were paired together on a school project Camilo was both ecstatic and nervous.
You worked on the project during school hours, spending much time together which Camilo greatly enjoyed. When it became clear you wouldn’t finish it in school hours he suggested you go to his house after school. You agreed, not going to pass up a chance to see the incredible Madrigal house and together you made your way there. Camilo said most of his family should be out which was a good thing so you’d have the place to yourself. True to form, nobody was around when you arrived and so Camilo gave you a grand tour and then you finally settled down to work.
Camilo stumbled into the dining room utterly exhausted from the day’s events. He loved being around you but he found himself concentrating on what you were saying so much it hurt his head. When you left he felt like he’d been in a blissful daze and it took him a while for him to get his bearings. His eagle-eyed family noticed this of course and Isabela frowned as he sat down next to her “why are you walking like that?”. “Nothing i’m just tired”. “Aww tough day at school?” Luisa asked and Camilo went to agree when Dolores spoke up “that’s not what I heard...”. “Ow that means she heard some gossip! What did you hear?” Madrigal cried excitedly. “Well, Mrs Diaz’s daughter told me she saw you coming home with a girl. Apparently you brought her inside casita and everything. She didn’t leave for hours” Dolores smirked doing that typical “oh” of hers before everyone erupted into a barrage of questions. “You know you aren’t allowed to bring guests home without telling us!” his mother cried “and unsupervised” his father added. “Wait was it a date?” Isabela asked as Madrigal cried “who was she?”. “No it wasn’t a date and you don’t know her!”. “I’m in the same year as you” Madrigal cried and she looked to Dolores who would know the answer to all her questions. “It certainly sounds like a date and her name’s y/n” Dolores replied simply. “Y/n L/n!” Madrigal cried and Camilo winced. Now they had a name they’d be like bloodhounds. “Wait l/n? I think I went to school with her sister, they’re a really lovely family” Luisa commented and finally Abuela Madrigal got everyone’s attention. “Everyone stop talking! Now Camilo, who is this girl and why did you bring her over here without telling us?”. “She’s just a girl from my school Abuela” Camilo looked down managing not to blush, very aware everyone was watching him. "It wasn’t a big deal, We had a school project and she came over to finish it. That’s all!".
His Abuela didn’t agree.
“It is a big deal! We are the Madrigals, there are things we have to do, ways we have to present ourselves to guests. You know I like to welcome everyone who steps into this house, it keeps the family reputation". Camilo nodded "I do and you did...in a way". A smirk filled Madrigal’s face "you didn’t". "Did what?' his father and Abuela said at the same time. Camilo smirked, egged on by Madrigal "I shapeshifted into you Abuela and welcomed her into the house. She liked it a lot so don't worry I was the perfect host". "You what!" Abuela cried and Madrigal, Isabela and even Luisa smirked. "Tell me you're lying". "He’s not" Dolores chimed in "his heart always speeds up when he’s lying...like when he said it wasn’t a date”. Camilo glared at her but gave his Abuela and parents a winning smile "it was just a joke and y/n found it funny believe me". "I don’t care we have traditions and they must be upheld so you will invite this girl back and we will do things properly". Camilo went to argue when his mother shot him a look and he groaned in defeat “yes Abuela”. Isabela smirked and leant in "remember how you acted when I had Mariano visiting? Payback time".
The next day
At the earliest opportunity Camilo was ordered out of the house by his Abuela to track you down and invite you back for dinner. He relented, realising there was no way of getting out of this and walked with Luisa who he hoped would help track you down. She was a good few heads taller than him and towered over him in the square. "Do you see her?" he asked and she paused “me? I have no idea what she looks like". "Well she has brown hair" he started. "Ow that narrows it down" Luisa commented and he rolled his eyes "let me finish! She has light brown hair, she’s about Madirgal’s skin tone and my height. She usually wears blue or something purple or green...". Luisa groaned "none of this is helping". "Okay just pick me up!" Camilo sighed. "Do what?" Luisa asked and he groaned "don’t make me say it again". Lusia lifted him easily onto her shoulder and he got a good look at the market. "See her?" Luisa called and he frowned “give me a sec". He inspected the crowd and every laugh or bright colour made him pause. Finally he saw you, not too far away from them with a vendor. "There she is!" Camilo cried, just a little too loudly as you looked up and saw him. Camilo immediately blushed and waved awkwardly. You waved back and Camilo was pretty red. "Are you blushing?" Luisa asked as she put him on the floor. "No!" He cried "I'm just warm from all of this, I'm gonna go talk to her" and he rushed over to you.
"Y/n!" he said and you turned around startled before smiling "hey Camilo, everything okay? I saw you over there with Luisa, did you lose someone?". "Erm yeah Antonio...". "Ow no that's awful, he’s your little brother right?". Camilo nodded "yeah but...it’ll be fine". "Fine?" you asked confused why he wasn’t scared that his baby brother was missing and Camilo backtracked. "I mean when we find him...want to help me look?". You nodded "of course" and hurried to help him.
The two of you wandered all over town to look for his little brother that was back at home but you never complained. Not even when you’d been all over town, into the woods and back in the square. Camilo was trying to work out a way to ask you to come to dinner but he kept getting distracted by you. You were just so interesting and intelligent. You knew so much about so many things and he kept getting amazed by your knowledge until finally he ran out of time.
You’d been all over town and no Antonio so you’d ended up back at the square where you’d been an hour ago. You sighed as you scanned the market and didn’t see Antonio. “Maybe we should go tell your parents or get the police? If he’s been gone this long it must be serious”. Camilo panicked and just said the first thing that came to him “yeah okay...ow wait there’s Luisa! She’s with Antonio so everything must be fine”. "Really? Where?” you asked cranking to see her but Camilo grabbed your arm "y/n I need your help with something...well something else". That got your attention "what is it?". "Well see my Abuela really likes having guests and she was upset I invited you over when she wasn't home so she wants me to invite you back so she can play hostess". "Play hostess, what does that involve?" you asked. "Well she’ll greet you at the door and there would be a meal but other than that it’d be just like last time...if you had any other homework you wanted to do? Or we don’t have to do homework, We could just hang out or whatever, we could...draw?" he said his brain completely failing to think of a task teenagers would do for fun. "Are you a good artist?” you asked smiling and he shook his head "nope, i have no idea why i suggested that". You laughed loudly and Camilo was sure you were laughing at him until you shot him a smile "well I think it sounds great, I'd love to come back". "Really?" Camilo asked "that's great! How’s tomorrow night?". You nodded "tomorrow works for me! I'll meet you at yours" and you walked away. Camilo stared after you in a daze until you disappeared from sight. Then he reflected on how things had gone and nodded to himself “I nailed that” he said to himself grinning smugly.
The day of the dinner
Despite Camilo’s good news Abuela Madrigal was angry he’d given her so little time to prepare. "I mean barely 24 hours to plan a dinner party" she said as she set the table with the best plates. "Well I kept telling you that you didn’t have to do this" he pointed out. "Of course we have to, now go wait by the door she'll be here soon" his Abuela cried. "Who?" Antonio asked and Isabela smirked "Camilo’s girlfriend". "Y/n is not my girlfriend!” he cried. "Yeah but you want her to be" Dolores chimed in and Madrigal nodded "big time, he’s always staring at her in school". "Where do you all keep coming from!" he cried and rushed from the room.
Camilo stepped out onto the porch and enjoyed the fresh air, it helped calm the blush on his cheeks. He had no idea how he was going to get through this evening but he didn’t have much time to figure it out as you appeared down the path. “Camilo!” you called and he smiled widely “hey y/n!”. He rushed down to meet you and paused as he saw how beautiful you looked. He couldn’t tell if you’d put in extra effort or not because to him you always looked this good. He led you up to the house and gave you what he thought was a pep talk. “So don’t worry if you forget names and just tell me if they’re being too annoying...maybe we need a help signal if they’re getting too much, how about you twirl your hair three times and sneeze as our escape signal?”. You laughed “don’t worry Camilo i’m sure it’ll be fine, your family all seem nice”. “Sure...” Camilo said and he opened the front door where one person was stood waiting. Antonio. You smiled “so you must be the little run away”. Antonio frowned and Camilo nodded for him to agree. You introduced yourself and told Antonio his toy Leopard was very pretty. “I have a real one too!” he cried and you jumped as an actual Leopard appeared. Camilo could’ve kicked himself, he definitely should’ve told you about that but you reacted well. “They’re gorgeous” you smiled and Antonio beamed.
You stepped closer to the leopard and Antonio turned to Camilo. "Is this your girlfriend Camilo?" he asked in a whisper. The only problem was Antonio hadn't mastered whispers yet so he just said it in a husky voice meaning you very much heard it. "Antonio! Why don’t you go find mami?" Camilo said pushing him away and when he turned around his family had swarmed. "It’s so nice to meet you y/n, Camilo has told us so much about you" Isabela said in a sickeningly sweet voice. "He has?” you asked blushing and Madrigal nodded "he just doesn’t shut up about you" and Dolores nodded "trust me I'd know". You blushed even more and Camilo had finally managed to push them back when his Abuela and parents appeared. "Ahh so this is the young woman I've heard so much about" his Abuela said. Camilo face planted, his family were going to make you think he was a stalker or something. You hadn't run away yet though, instead you turned and smiled at his Abuela and parents. You introduced yourself and thanked them for inviting you to dinner. You complimented casita and asked if there was anything you could do to help with dinner. Camilo knew by their reaction they liked you instantly. As you walked into the dining room you complimented his mother’s dress and she was beaming, sun filling the dining room. "Dinner will be a few moments so sit and relax” his Abuela said and you looked around unsure where to sit. Camilo realised you were looking for him and felt quite special. He rushed forwards and showed the seat marked out for you next to him. You sat down next to each other and he smiled "I feel like I should apologise already". You chuckled "you don’t need to, your family are nice. Very welcoming". Camilo raised his eyebrow “that's one way to put it. Thank you for putting up with all this". You shook your head and went to tell Camilo it was fine when his cousins interrupted. "So y/n you go to school with Camilo?” Luisa asked. You nodded "yep, have done since we were five". Isabela leant forwards "what's he like in class? Class clown I'm guessing since he’s obviously not the class brains". The others laughed and Camilo glared but you didn’t laugh. "Well yes but in a good way. He always makes the day more fun and he’s the most popular person at school because he’s so funny". Camilo sat there smiling proudly as Isabela’s plan failed and Luisa nodded "so y/n any idea what you’d like to go when you graduate?". "Geez Luisa you're becoming more and more like Abuela" Camilo commented and you laughed but placed a hand on his arm "it's fine, I don’t mind" before turning back to Luisa "I'd love to be a dancer". "A dancer?" Camilo’s mother Pepa asked returning to the room and you nodded "I love dance and basically anything related to music so i’d like to pursue something along those lines". All the adults rejoined and his Abuela heard "ahh so can you play any instruments?". Camilo snorted "she can play just about anything, y/n is a great musician". You smiled at that and Camilo noticed his family all shooting him looks and blushed. "Well you'll definitely have to play something for us after dinner then" his Abuela suggested and you nodded "I'd love to".
The night was a huge success. You were your usual charming self through dinner and didn’t get overwhelmed by his huge family once. You joked around with his sister and cousins. You were polite and sweet to his Abuela and so naturally brilliant with his parents. You played the piano as requested and it was beautiful. Camilo was transfixed just like the rest of the family and you even inspired the youngest member. At the end of your song Antoni came forwards and told you he wanted to learn to play like you. You offered to teach him a little and his family was practically gushing over the way you handled Antonio. You lifted him onto the bench with you and showed him how to play some chords. When he got through the sequence without making any mistakes he beamed at all his family who all grinned back in return. It was safe to say his family all loved you and he could only imagine how much they’d encourage him to date you as if it was up to him. You said he was popular but everyone liked you because you were just so nice. You treated everyone with kindness but were no pushover and were extremely intelligent. Camilo was pushing his luck with you, gifts and all, no matter how much he liked you, which was something his family didn’t seem to get.
When the night was over Camilo led you outside and his family all gave you heartfelt goodbyes and asked you to come again. When you finally reached the front door Camilo sighed happily feeling the fresh air. You stood beside him and looked up at the night sky, as if surprised how much time had passed. "So..." Camilo said glancing at you awkwardly. He knew at the end of dates was when you typically asked for another one but he was still trying to work up the courage to do that. He, Camilo, who had never been nervous in his life. He remembered his own door ceremony he’d actually made jokes as he walked down the carpet and made his Abuela laugh in a very undignified way. But now he was more nervous than he’d ever been staring at you.
"Yes?” you asked as Camilo had just stopped talking and trailed off into silence. Camilo hurried to continue "i erm...well i...was wondering I'd you'd maybe like to do something like this again?". "Come over for dinner?'” you asked and he shook his head. It was now or never and Madrigals were brave, so Camilo went for it. "No, well we can if you want but I meant more the two of us...alone". You smiled "like a date?". Camilo went bright red and he struggled to form words. "I...well...yes" he finally managed "if you’d want to of course". "I'd like to go on a date with you Camilo" you replied and he froze "you would? Really?". You nodded smiling "yep, you're the most interesting and funniest boy I’ve ever met. You have a way of making everyone feel safe and comfortable around you and that’s one reason I was so happy we got put together for our project...I’d love to spend more time with you". Camilo felt like he was floating to get such glowing praise from you and he stammered like an idiot before he saw you noticed his reaction and were blushing lightly. "Well then erm...I'll come up with some ideas of what we can do and tell you them at school". You nodded "sounds great" and looked at him. Camilo stared back at you and supposed this would be the time one of the people on a date would lean forward and kiss the other. However Camilo had used up all his bravery asking you for a second date, he didn’t have any more courage in him...but the casita did!
The house pushed Camilo up and forward and it did the same to you. Camilo couldn’t really stop himself but he wouldn’t have wanted to anyway. The house had the bravery to do what he didn’t and he kissed you. Your eyes widened in shock at first but then you smiled and closed them enjoying the kiss.
Camilo walked back inside practically strutting and composed himself before entering the kitchen. Everyone paused the second he entered and he sighed "okay so what did you think?'. "She’s lovely mi amor" his mother gushed and his father nodded "such a lovely young girl". "I’ve always liked her" Madrigal added and Luisa nodded "very nice girl". "She’s really nice, can you ask her to come back and teach me again?" Antonio asked. "I have to admit she was perfect. Still no idea why she’s interested in you..." Isabela said. Finally his Abuela nodded "I agree with everyone, she is a lovely girl Camilo...". There was a pause and Camilo nodded "I agree...". "So?" his mother asked and he paused "so what?". "Are you two together?" his father asked and he blushed. "They are!" Isabela cried noticing his reaction and Camilo tried to deny it but Dolores smirked "he asked her out on an official date just now and she said yes". They all exploded in excitement and Camilo told them they were being crazy and excused himself from the room.
Despite his words he was secretly as overjoyed as his family and as he went up to his room he patted the house “thanks casita, you did good”.
I love Dolores and Camilo’s sibling relationship so much! The few moments we got in the movie were so funny and I need more Disney! I bet Camilo was such a handful of a little brother and Dolores would be such a funny big sister because she literally hears everything you say or do!
Not to mention they killed their verses in we don’t talk about Bruno. I just need more of these chaotic siblings and I need it now!
Alright but the ending kinda hurts me just because at the end you get to see everyone vibing with their powers now that Mirabel has helped lighten their load and rekindle the love in the family,
and like sure, you don’t see Camilo (I think?) or Dolores either but there wasn’t really a problem with their powers established in the film.
You get to see Luisa fix her problems with bearing the load for everyone and relax, you get to see Isabela be herself and grow something other than flowers, you get to see Pepa just let it out and not worry about clear skies, Antonio gets to vibe w his animal friends again,
but there’s nothing for Bruno.
Sure, he came out of the walls and he gets to be in the family photo but there’s no redemption for his gift. Abuela tells him he’s a miracle more than his gift is but no one really gets to appreciate his gift in a new light like they did with everyone else.
It makes me think that after this he’s just not going to use his gift again if he can help it. He doesn’t want to go through the trouble and heartbreak of being the bearer of bad news and the weirdo who kills peoples’ goldfish so he just buries his gift and his pain and watches everyone else be happy with their powers.

I really love encanto but I'm legitimately confused abt this
Specifically, when Dolores says " the only one worried about the magic is you. And the rats talking in the walls."
Dolores' power is to hear things really well, not talk to animals, and Antonio just got his power that last night. Unless Dolores and Antonio had a little get together to find the rats and talk to them, how would Dolores be able to understand what the rats were worried about/talking about?
If anyone has an explanation please please tell me bc I am genuinely interested in knowing
camilo madrigal x gn!reader
summary: a normal day in town turns into meeting the camilo madrigal
notes: this is literally just the beginning of a fanfic that i ended up not using, 18+ dni
song: irresistible by one direction
word count: 1.1k
it was a normal day in encanto. you’d woken up, eaten breakfast, then went outside. already waiting for you was a small gathering of encanto’s children, three girls and three boys all the age of 5. it was routine for encanto’s families to let their children play with you during the day as they do their work, and today was no exception.
the loudest of the bunch came running to you, a boy named andres with dark brown skin and darker hair. “antonio madrigal is staying with us today!” he exclaimed, the other children jumping with excitement around him.
“oh really?” you crouch down to get to the childrens’ level. “and who told you that?”
“camilo!” one of the girls, carmen, answer. “yesterday when you were gone, camilo took care of us. he told us antonio wanted to play with us today.”
“the camilo madrigal played with you guys yesterday?” you question. you’d never met any of the madrigals except for maribel and antonio, but you’d heard about camilo often because of the children you babysat. when you couldn’t do the job, they reported to you that camilo took your place. they seemed to love the madrigal’s company, as they squealed whenever his name came out of your mouth.
“the camilo madrigal played with you guys yesterday? lucky!” someone from behind you repeats with a gasp. it was a smooth and teasing voice you’d never heard before.
you turn around and stand up to meet the voice’s owner. for a split second you see a gorgeous boy with golden brown skin and dark curly hair reaching to his rauna-covered shoulders. but then the boy begins to cough uncontrollably, and suddenly in a couple blurs of motion the boy is now mirabel, then a red-head with a braid, then a man with glowing green eyes, then you, then himself again but with enlarged eyes and tiny pupils. with a final cough and a fist to his chest, the boy shakes his head furiously and morphs into the boy you originally saw him as.
you stand there, openmouthed as you realize this is camilo madrigal standing in front of you. and not only is it camilo madrigal, but it’s also the most attractive boy you’ve ever seen in your life.
now that he isn’t materializing into random people, you see that his curly hair has highlights of gold in the sunlight. his rauna is a nice yellow, and under the rauna is a partially unbuttoned and uniorned collared shirt. his eyes are a muddy green, with streaks of light brown. his lips reflect your own: slightly open with infatuation.
you only realize you and camilo have been staring at each other for way too long to be normal when you hear all the children giggling behind you.
“i take it you’re camilo madrigal?” you ask, to distract yourself. and maybe your eyes are fooling you, but you see a tint of pink appear under his freckles when his name leaves your mouth.
“the one and only.” there’s a subtle shift in energy as camilo’s flustered smile displaces itself with a small smirk. “and you are?”
“y/n l/n,’ you reply with a small smile. the moment is ruined when andres begins to chant.
“camilo and y/n, sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g!” andres screams giddily, causing all the other children to erupt into a fit of giggles.
“kissing?!” camilo kneels to meet andres’s height and pat the child’s shoulder. “let’s not say that, y/n may not like it.”
camilo looks at you and his smirk grows ever so slightly. you’re pretty sure if he does that again you’ll faint.
one of the boys pulls on his rauna, directing camilo’s gaze from you to him. it’s sebastian, one of the shyest in the group.
“long time no see sebastian!” camilo ruffles the young boy’s hair. you smile at the interaction between the madrigal and the young boy. it’s cute, how he stares at all the children with a soft adoration.
sebasian giggles at the action before pulling on camilo’s rauna again, “can you shapshift for us?”
camilo grins at the request and stands up, scooping sebastian in his arms as he did so. the shapeshifter glances at you, making sure you were looking- which you were- then tosses sebastian in the air.
sebastian shrieks elatedly; whilst he’s in midair, camilo shifts into luisa, allowing sebastian to land on luisa’s tough shoulder. with luisa’s build, camilo then picks up the rest of the children and tosses them all in the air. your heart stops for a split second- afraid he’d fail at catching all the children safely- yet camilo successfully catches all the children and shifts back into himself.
all the children cheer, including yourself. it was impressive, and the more you watched camilo, the more fascinated you became with his swift movements and soft yet cocky persona. when camilo meets your eyes and sees fascination in them, he silently cheers to himself.
“more shapshifting!” the children chant. even antonio is cheering, despite living with camilo and witnessing his brother’s shapeshifting abilities daily.
“okay, okay!” camilo hushes the energetic children. “i have to make it quick, because i have some chores.”
with that being said, camilo waves his rauna like a cape and shifts into the bright green-eyed man you saw him shift into when you first saw him. all children gasp and run backwards while camilo waves the man’s arms around and yells spookily.
the only one not scared is antonio, who shakes his head and skeptically mutters: “tio bruno?”
afterwards, camilo morphs into a gorgeous woman that you assume to be isabela madrigal. he pulls a flower from the ground and places it behind carmen’s ear, making the girl beam happily.
camilo then shifts into himself momentarily, yelling “best for last!”, and waves his rauna again. instantaneously, he turns into you.
all the children simultaneously tilt their heads in confusion.
“why did you change into y/n?” antonio questions. “they’re right there.” he points to you and all the children nod their heads in agreement.
“porque y/n es muy bonito,” camilo says smoothly, as if he’s been practicing it for years. he turns back into himself before winking at you, causing all the children to squeal. some of them even run to push you closer to camilo.
you mentally plead for the blood to escape your cheeks, but your blush doesn’t cease. did he really just call me attractive?
“ay, i have to go now, hijos,” camilo waves. he high fives all the children and gives antonio his lunch before turning away.
as all of you watched him go, you could’ve sworn you saw him steal another glance at you as he rounded the corner.
you were incredibly flustered and all he had done was call you attractive.
School is already getting stressful for me (；´∀｀). Don't have much so here's a little Encanto doodle of Antonio cuz I fell in love with this boy immediately
Pepa: Why is a snake in my sock drawer?!
Antonio: She needed a warm spot to lay her eggs.
all hail short king Antonio Madrigal, who at only five years old, followed some rats into the walls of his house, offered some random hombre del saco looking man that claimed to be the uncle his hermano sang horror stories about his room to do some voodoo looking shit AND lent him his favorite plushie for the nerves, all to help his favorite prima save their Casita.
bc he believed every word Mirabel said like it was some message from god
[ID: Digital fanart of Encanto. Side portraits of each of the members of the Madrigal family are arranged on a page, on top of a pattern, and connected together by a flowing line colored in a rainbow gradient. At the end of the line, “La familia Madrigal” is written. In order: Abuela has a pink candle, Dolores a sound wave and music notes, Antonio the head of a leopard, Camilo the faces of Bruno and his father, Pepa clouds with rain, Bruno a glass shard with a rat, Julieta some herbs, Maribel a butterfly, Luisa a dumbbell and a rock and Isabela a succulent. All but Maribel and Bruno are facing left.]
Y/n: Yes, Brunito?
Bruno: .....Do you still love me?
Y/n: *grabs Bruno by the waist* Of course I do~
Bruno: Then, why don't we have any kids?
Y/n: *confused* We do have kids?
Bruno: We do?
The rats, squeaking sadly: 'Cousin Antonio, our father doesn't love us anymore...'
Antonio: It's okay, I'll love you.
Little things I’ve noticed about the costume design in Encanto
In no particular order because I can’t put my thoughts into a cohesive line even if I tried…
The original triplets have their own colours: Julieta - Teal, representing her powers of healing, Pepa - Yellow, because she always needs to be happy and not ruin the weather, Bruno - Green, because green can represent both good and evil
Pepa’s family are wearing yellow. Felix, who married into the family, also wears yellow but with his own touch of orange stripes. The children are wearing yellow for their mom and have stripes for their dad.
Agustin’s clothes are white and dark blue which compliment Julieta’s teal. Luisa is wearing white and dark blue like her father and Mirabel is wearing white top and a skirt that goes from teal to blue, a little from both parents.
The last one is Isabela who is wearing violet. A combination beween her family’s blue colors and her grandmother’s magenta dress, representing her falling into the role of the golden child of Abuela.
2. Mirabel’s dress
Mirabel has a little from everyone. Starting from the basic design that is a white top and blue skirt just like Luisa, her skirt has teal for her mother and blue like her father.
Now to the details. Her dress has a candle and is full of butterflies, representing the miracle; the butterfly on her shoulder is the same colour as the flower on her father. She has embroidered flowers for Isabela, has a cloud for Pepa and a leopard for Antonio.
Camilo is wearing the colours of his family, but in contrast to all the men in the village who are wearing suits and shirts, Camilo is dressed like his tio Bruno.
Dolores is wearing a cute red pattern with a red bow, two things that only one other family member has - Luisa.
The little guy has a red scarf around his neck that is the same colour as his sister’s necklace.
At the end of the movie, when Isabela realises she can create more things than just roses, she changes her dress to dark blue - the colour of her father and Luisa, and she adds different colour patterns just like Mirabel.
Abuela: Pepa! Why are there little handprints all over the walls?
Pepa, whispering: Why are there little handprints all over the walls?
Antonio, whispering back: Because I have little hands.
Pepa: Because he has little hands, Mamá.
Bruno: do the rats talk to you?
Antonio, who just woke up: huh?
Bruno: I need to know what the rats think of me
I rewatched Encanto and here are some small details that I noticed.
Warning: spoilers, LOTS of spoilers.
During the scene where Antonio got his gift, Dolores covered her ears when a firework went off. She probably does get sensory overload and that’s kind of sad. Considering that she could literally hear Luisa’s eye twitching, I can’t imagine how painful loud noises are for her :(
I saw someone else point this out, but now that I can see the film in HD I got to see it for myself. When Antonio is exploring his room, Camilo does this motor tic in excitement which could be a nod to ADHD or autism and I think that’s pretty neat.
Update: I was informed that this is a cultural gesture, I wasn’t aware before, but now I know. It’s still a cute scene.
This shot makes me really sad. Everyone else is glowing and Mirabel is the only one upset. It’s also a part of Mirabels imagination, where she just wants her family to be proud of her. Abuela smiling in this shot is also very upsetting, because in every other shot (that’s not a flashback or the end of the movie) Abuelas and Mirabels interactions have been Abuela looking down on Mirabel. That can apply to Isabela too.
Also throughout the movie, whenever something bad happens in the house, Abuela immediately blames Mirabel, without any evidence that Mirabel was affecting the magic. It was one of the few things that geniuenly got on my nerves, but maybe that was the point
I just thought it was cute :)) Look at Luisa hugging Mirabel and Camilo with Antonio.
OKAY, OKAY, BUT I LOVE THE SMALL ATTENTION TO DETAIL LIKE THE FRECKLES ON THEIR FACES AND THE INDIVIDUAL HAIRS ON LUISAS ARMS.
I love the detail of the hourglass symbol on the door, but I’m confused why that room was there in the first place.
Sure it’s so that nobody would find the prophecy, but why would the room fill up with sand and endanger anyone that enters especially if that person was a part of Brunos family.
Again, I’m obsessed with the attention to detail.
I love that we can see the individual stitchings of her bag or the small grains of sand on her clothing/hands/hair.
I LOVE THAT BRUNO’S JUST VIBING IN THE BACKGROUND like ah yes this is a bop.
Anyways, I love that Dolores is whispering because she knows that he’s there and can literally hear him walking around.
Also some shot’s from Camilo’s verse because I am genuinely obsessed with this boy. The gender envy is real.
I also love the idea that the reason why Camilos perception of Bruno that of a 7 foot tall mythical rat man is because he only saw him when he was much younger and he just seemed taller and then currently they’re both like only 5′6.
I also wonder if because of the towns completely warped sense of who Bruno actually was made Camilo think of him as more of a local legend than a part of his family.
Mirabel looks so done with Isabelas shit.
You can literally hear Dolores tapping on her nails on her glass, the sound effects are phenominal.
This is the saddest shot in this entire film.
The fact that he still eats dinners with his family because he doesn’t want to be excluded, but nobody knows that he’s there (except Dolores). He doesn’t even have a plate, it’s just drawn on the wood D’:
Abuela: ‘‘Pepa, Calm down!’’
Pepa: ‘‘I am doing my best.’’
Felix, being the supportive husband that he is: ‘‘Yes.’’ 🤨
Pepa: ‘‘You’re lucky that it’s not a hurricane.’’
My favourite piece of dialouge in this movie.
I love the different colors on Isabelas dress. I can’t be the only one that headcanons her as a lesbian right?
I’m sorry, but Bruno putting a bucket on his head to headbutt a way out of the casita was one of the funniest shots I’ve ever seen.
‘‘I knew he never left, I heard him every day’‘ 💀
The doorknob that the family gives to Maribel at the end of the movie, is the same doorknob that was on the magical door when she was 5.
I also appreciate that Mirabel didn’t get a gift in this scene, even though for a second it seemed like she would. I like the idea that her gift is metaphorically being the glue that keeps her family together.
How the hell did this table not topple over. What’s up with the physics here?
AAAAND ending shot.
