Magical girls of the family Madrigal 🌟🎀
A small detail: during various stages of Casita's fall, we see Isabela, Luisa and Dolores taking care of Abuela.
Isa and Abuela Alma
So obviously Isabela is Abuela's favourite grandkid, it's clear that while she doesn't show her irritation with other grandkids (except Mira, my beloved), she favours Isa. But why?
The easy answer is that Isabela behaves in that perfect manner, always does as she's told and really, who wouldn't want such a kid? However, quoting Pepa's famous:
Have any of you noticed that Isa looks identical to young Alma?
Same lips, face shape, eyes, ears, hair (not hairstyle), Isa only has slightly thicker eyebrows and smaller nose and her skin is darker. Even in Bruno's vision, when he still had a problem to see who Mirabel was hugging, the person looked like young Alma.
It might have been that Abuela wanted to direct Isa's life like it was her own, if she and Pedro didn't have to leave their house, hence if Pedro lived.
Also notice that while Pepa's side of the family all wears the shades of yellow, oranges and reds (ignore the fact that Antonio's clothes are white here)
And while Julieta's side of the family dresses in blues and teals, Isabela does not exactly match
Isabela wears a pastel purple/pink dress and it doesn't exactly match her side of the family, if anything, it matches Abuela's magenta dress more (plus notoce how similar their earrings are)
And when she finally breaks the spell of forced perfection and gets her dress all dirty and wild in "What Else Can I Do", it turns that deep navy color, that matches her with her family
Do with this whatever you want
(Side note, notice how Félix's face is all serious in the gif but brightens up with an exited smile when Pepa mentions their wedding day, too cute)
thinking about luisa and isabela's different reactions to talking to mirabel
when luisa talks to mirabel, her gift starts to fade. the reason for this is because luisa realised she needed a break, to relax, so her gift responded by giving her an excuse to work less hard, not realising that'd upset her
whereas isabela didn't need a break, she needed something different - so her gift got stronger and added more possibilities to what she could do
Madrigals as things my roommate has said to me:
Camilo-(burning Mac and cheese) If I do a dance in my fancy pants this will turn out fine.
Dolores- If you didn't hear it, it didn't happen.
Antonio- This is a dog. It goes "bark bark, eat less chicken, murderer."
Pepa-(in a silent room) Stop that you idiot! I can't hear myself think!
Félix- Calm down. You need like, a bottle of chill cough syrup, forget a chill pill. Like relax.
Julieta- How dare you order a pizza. Give me some.
Agustín-(after running into a tree) I think I'm too cool for walking.
Mirabel- I have a kazoo, I think I'll recreate the 'it's a mental breakdown' vine.
Isabela- You disgust me. How dare you wear an ORANGE shirt on my birthday.
Luisa- I'm tired of work. So I think imma write an essay. Come get me in three hours.
Abuela Alma- I love you which is why I despise you so greatly.
