Félix- Oh we’re having a big giant family dinner with guests where my niece is about to get proposed to? Lemme tell my anxiety ridden stressed out wife whose emotions make it storm that her house is falling apart and they might all lose their magic
Since Encanto is set in Colombia, a place that usually doesn't get snow due to it being so close to the equator, do you think everyone freaked out the first time Pepa had a breakdown and accidentally brought on a snow storm
Okay, so I was scrolling through the Bruno Madrigal tags as usual and I just want to talk about this moment:
So Bruno has confronted his fear of seeing his mother again, he finally gets to reunite with his sisters and what is his first instinct?
He tries to wave.
He hasn't seen his sisters in ten years (at least face to face.) He's heard the family make him out to be some villain. They don't even say his name. He doesn't know where they stand. He got lucky with his mother but Pepa and Julieta?
Knowing Pepa, he's probably expecting her to explode at him. As she runs at him, he looks at her with concern or fear. So many scenarios run through his head.
But instead, she hugs him.
And, of course, he's completely confused for a moment. During the scene with Mirabel and his new vision, he can't even recognise what a hug is.
But both his sisters hug him. He probably thinks they hate him for leaving and maybe other things from their past. But they don't. They're just so happy to have him back.
Even when Bruno hugs back, it seems mechanical, like he's trying to remember the stages of how to give a hug.
He's been deprived of contact for so long and even though he doesn't fully grasp it now, he will.
This is a little headcannon that's been in my brain for a while it has to do with the doors and a sort of defence system they use. So when a Madrigal is overwhelmed they can go into their room and the door will keep people out. Here's some examples:
Isabela when she is upset her doorknob will grow thorns to keep others out.
Pepa's knob will give people an electric shock.
Antonio's isn't used that much because he's five, but when it is it will turn into a jaguar and bite the person touching it.
Luisa's door becomes to heavy for people to open.
Julieta's becomes hot enough to burn, but the pain and burn goes away as soon as you let go (this also doesn't get used often).
Dolores's is used the most out of everyone because her gift gets so overwhelming sometimes. When her doorknob gets touched it sends out a soundwave that leaves people's ears ringing.
Bruno's doorknob turns to sand when touched so no one can get a good grip on it to turn it.
Alma's door would be similar to Julieta's door except the entire door is just on fire.
And finally Camilo his door will straight up disappear into the wall. It was really scary the first time it happened because people must have thought he had either died, lost his gift or was still in there and was stuck.
Hehehe time to over analyze the fuck out of this ten second clip!
OK LETS GO!
SO! Firstly. I’m gonna start out this this image of the creators tweet
He said Pepa was the ‘Middle child’ more emotional because JULIETA was the ADULT!
Now, it may just be theory. And it might be literal canon, but its heavily implied Julieta never got much criticism from Alma like Pepa did. Sure. That meant she had a lot of pressure. To ironically, be the ‘Perfect golden child’ (gosh and the fact Isabella was her child ok I’m getting off tract shshsbdh). But typically since her gift was easy, and not problematic. She was probably closer to Abuela. And got less scolding.
Which of course, as the middle child who was ridiculed and forced to repress her emotions, it would make her ‘More emotional’
NOW! Let’s analyze these frames!
their both a little shocked Alma is apologizing. Though Pepa is visibly more surprised, while Julieta looks more concerned.
Maybe cause Pepa never got an apology growing up. Or never saw her do it.
‘miss eldest golden child Julieta’ got one.
you see cause now she looks resolute. She looks downtrodden and sad. While Julieta looks the same. Cause Alma has always been closer to Julieta. And Pepa probably assumes that if anything, this apology is just for her Sister.
(but of course she walks forward too cause like. Jsdjjd for music purposes. And also hope. She probably is hoping it’s for her for once. plain old hoping.) which is easily backed up by…
they Both approach her. Yet it’s JULIETA Alma first goes to. She takes JULIETAS hands.
She doesn’t take Pepas hands. LOOK AT HER HANDS. she’s holding them nervousky. Clenched together. Tucked to her chest. She looks so anxious ans sad. Watching Julieta get the love.
Now Julieta is at ease. She understands her mom is fine. And she’s getting a love filled apology. She’s ok.
PEPA ON THE OTHER HAND LOOKS DESTROYED. she’s literally watching them two. Wondering if she’ll be noticed. If she’ll get an apology. If she’ll just be ignored yet again. If she’s even deserving of such high honored only given to the eldest golden child.
THEN RELIEF! Alma has reached out. For once. And it is a shock. Theirs a second she doesn’t move. But then she instinctively leans into the comforting touch of her mother that she was so deprived of. Closing her eyes to relish it. She is final getting the love and appreciation she deserves. (And yes Julieta is happy for her sister. She knows she’s been deprived of what should be rightfully hers)
Confirmation! She makes eye contact with her mom. she smiles. It is real. She can’t believe it but is so happy and relieved! Pepa madrigal is being LOVED!
gosh. This took so much out of me. Thanks for sitting through my passionate and maybe A little obsessive rant. what can I say. I love Pepa Madrigal! 😌
please reblog the hell out of this it took so much energy
Félix loves dancing. He taught his kids to dance salsa, he’ll go out and dance with Dolores, his nieces, Julieta, Alma… if he’s at a party or whatever and see someone against the wall, even if they’re a total stranger he’ll be the first to go over and be like ‘hey come on, dance with me! 😃’
