The question on everyone's mind after finishing Encanto seems to be one thing. Does Mirabel ACTUALLY have a Gift? You see, she seemed to be the only one able to save the family and hold them together. There is a lot of speculation that hidden somewhere in there is a secret power. Today we are going to figure out what that may be and what it means for the Madrigal family.

Interesting. When I saw the movie, I knew before the end of it what Mirabel's power was, not because of all the details you pointed out, but because of one you seemed to have missed. The thing I noticed was that the house was responding to Mirabel's own state. When she was happy and fine, so was the Casita, but the moment she began feeling doubt, insecurity, hurt... like she didn't belong, the cracks started to show... it was like the house was mirroring her and so of course the cracks were gone when everyone rushes back because Mirabel wasn't dwelling on her own problems anymore. She was so overwhelmed with concern for the home and what it meant for the family that when everyone was there, everything was fine again. The fact that the cracks Bruno was fixing were under the surface, mirrors the fact that Mirabel has spent her entire life HIDING the hurt and struggle she's had with not having a gift that is like the rest of her family. So of course, by the time the climax comes with the big fight between Abuela and Mirabel, the house then falls apart... because she's broken and has finally exposed that brokenness to her family with such force that it snuffs out the candle and the house gives one last ditch effort to protect her even as it crumbles down around her. She never had a door because she had the entire home as her "door" the entire time and just didn't realize it as she was so wrapped up in what did happen that she and everyone else didn't realize what was actually going on. That, as you said, the role of keeper of the magic, was being passed down. Anyway, that's my 2 cents on this. Can't wait to see some more vids from you! I think it's cool you manage to juggle life as a parent along with all the vids you do. Especially since not all of them are child friendly (Lookin' at you Cooking Companions).

Although I mostly agree with this theory, I believe that Pedro’s spirit is in the candle. The reason it did not return with the house is because the family are no longer under any pressure, so Pedro has no reason to return and protect his family and is reincarnated into a butterfly to live out the rest of his life. I hope that made sense.

It could also be that abuela needed the memory of Pedro to keep the magic alive, and the candle was the symbol of their love and his sacrifice. As long as she had the candle, Pedro was still with her. So for her the candle and casitas magic were inseparable linked. But Mirabel never even met Pedro. She got her strenght from her loving family surrounding her. So she doesn't need the candle anymore. And neither did Abuela, because she tells Mirabel in the end that she understands now. When she asked Pedro for help, he sent Mirabel. It's like she can finally let go of her past and her grief (the candle) and embrace the future (Mirabel).

As a Spanish speaker, I can confirm that the word “casito” doesn’t exist when referring to a house. Casa is a feminine word, so the nickname “casita” is the only option you have to show that the house is either small and cute, or just to show love and affection towards it. So if the house really was the reincarnation of Pedro, the house would still be called “casita”. Just wanted to point that out.

If MatPat just saw the lyrics of “Dos Oruguitas” better, it legit says “dos oruguitas, enamoradas” or “two caterpillars, in love” so the 2 “oruguitas” are Alma and Pedro (also fun fact "Alma" means "Soul" in Spanish)

When Mirabel opens the door to casita at the end, it lights up like her family members' individual doors at their ceremonies, indicating that the whole house is her own space - her magic is the casita itself.

For a split second I thought Mirabel gift was to stop time or see the future because she was the only one who saw the house crack this was the same scene I thought she had the gift to stop time as well with her solo. But her gift is clearly understanding a moving house. Which in a way might mean she can talk to the dead because isn't the house her grandfather? Her other Gift is simply being emotionally strong. I did have a thought that all the other gifts resembles a little bit of mirabel but that's probably not true. This is the only Disney movie maybe even any movie (at least that I know of) where the main character doesn't need to learn anything. It was the people around her that needed to learn that powers doesn't make who you are. I found this aspect of the film the most interesting.

Love the theory, as always! But one minor correction; casita is feminine because casa is feminine. "Casito" would be something completely different (little case), from "caso". In Spanish, you refer to the gender of the object, rather than implied human gender. For instance, "mi amor" or "el amor de mi vida" is masculine, but can be used just as easily to refer to a female. It would never be *la amor de mi vida, so it similarly would never be *el casita, even if the theory of the casita being the soul of the abuelo were true.

Mirabel is always shown sewing or creating art for each of the family members but there is a specific emphasis on sewing, with her gift to Antonio and the fact she sewed the butterflies onto her dress- this could be a cheeky metaphor to how she kinda “sewed” the family back together
DanishStina 3 ay əvvəl
Also: Did anyone notice how the gifts reflected Alma's needs? I think casita chose the gifts for the family member based on what Alma needs at the time. Her children got the gifts of weather manipulation, clairvoyance and healing, because at the time Alma had lost her husband and her home. So casita gave Pepa weather powers to help grow food for the community, Julietta got healing so that Alma would never lose someone again, and Bruno got the power of foresight to warn them of any dangers. In the next generation most gifts seems to be flashier than their mothers. Dolores helps Alma get information about the village just like she does in the movie. Camillo and Louisa's gifts are to remind the village how powerful and helpful they are. While Isabella perfect candidate for the Madrigals to gain more influence in the village just like mentioned in the movie. When Mirabel received her 'gift' as the next keeper, that was because that was the only thing missing at the time to sure the legacy of the Madrigals. When Mirabel didn't receive any powers, Alma was so desperate that all she needed was a gift for Antonio. Literally any gift would do, so casita gave him something within his interest, animals.

@Pajaro Chango Dolores powers are an extension of Bruno: she could hear if someone was plotting anything against the family or the community, she could probably if anything happens under the soil (preparing them for a natural disaster), only to list two things. On the other hand, Camillo could work on the emotional part of the community: the best duty I could think of it's for him to help others with the closure of the death of a beloved one, calm the babies using their mother's voice and lift morals by saying the words others need to hear using the voice from the person they are craving the words (this last one isn't that healthy, but I put it in because sometimes it's all that's needed). So, even if not that extended in their sphere of action, all gifts are helpful for the family, whether an extension for someone else's gift, whether to treat more specific of deep needs.

For real though: Thank you Thank you so much for clearing up the butterfly symbolism that’s been fluttering around the movie…When I got done listening to “All of you” in the movie, I finally realized that even a butterfly was on the candle…the first time that a butterfly was shown, timeline speaking, was when Abuela and Abuelo notice each other. A butterfly fluttered in front of Abuelo and coincidentally met eyes with Abuela…But Abuela did see him first, still there had to have been some kind of outside force that brought them two together…I wanna ask: How is it that a single lonesome butterfly coincidentally flutters past Abuelo to only meet see Abuela at the right time and angle…Was the event that they were at and the community were celebrating has some kind of spiritual energy that caused? I am going deep deep dish than you, MattPatt…I just wanna get rid of this heavy weight that the movie gave me like you did when you first started the FNAF series and a couple of Sonic theories (They were a nightmare and a half for me hahaha)

I really love this theory!! I think it’s probably my favorite so far. I really felt like the ending was lacking something but now that I understand it, it’s a lot more powerful. My theory is that if we get Encanto 2, it will be the passing of Alma and the tree handing off casita to Mirabel.

maksys93 3 gün əvvəl
After watching the movie i came up with literally the same theory .... I was mostly confused as to no one seemed to wonder why Mirabel ceremony "failed". The encanto is unique in the world and even if so far no one failed there wasn't enough ceremonies to make Alma expert at how it works. No one except in my opinion Bruno actually tried to understand why Mirabel didn't get a gift.And with his power he was to be the one alerting the family that "not everything was perfect". Bruno was exiled simply because he was telling truth that no one wanted to hear.
Aheront 4 gün əvvəl
Something that supports this theory is the fact that when Mirabel's door disparaged, the candle trembled. Alma was hesitant to give Mirabel her gift because it meant to give her the candle, the "leadership" of the Madrigals. She was insecure to let the family in her hands, just as it happens when someone younger takes the place of an older person. Because Alma wasn't ready to let go and move on from her duty, she still wanted to be the strong pillar of the community.

I don't know what the alternative would be either, like there probably isn't really a Spanish way to say "hello Mr. the House!" without it getting confusing? If my house identifies as male..... some languages may not have existing words for that? 🤷‍♂️

Only the first time I watched Encanto, I theorized/figured out that what was breaking the magic was broken family bonds. When Mirabel is hugging Isabela or whatever, the magic thrives and the cracks disappear. Yet during Mirabel and Alma’s confrontation, the cracks destroy the house and the candle goes out. Really, I don’t know how I theorized that but that’s my first theory.

In an interview one of the creators of Encanto said that the candle is a symbol of Abuela's unconditional love for her family. It wavers when Mirabel doesn't get a gift because of how upset Abuela was in the moment causing her love to also waver. It only goes out entirely when Abuela realizes that she had, in fact, been putting conditions on her love for her family without realizing it for years. This is also evidence that the magic moved on to Mirabel because she DID love her family unconditionally even when they weren't on the best terms.

5:30 Funny that the word “casito” is most certainly NOT a word in Spanish. The word ‘house’ can ONLY be referenced as casa or casita. I am not Colombian, but I know for a fact that no where in Latin American cultures do not they use the word ‘casito’. I should know because I’m Venezuelan. Listen if want to prove a point, state out the facts. Not all the words in Spanish are feminine and masculine. Like ‘agua’ you never say ‘aguo’ that isn’t a word (agua means water). There are some words with exceptions like ‘brasileño’ and ‘brasileña’ (Brazilian). There are other words that make a COMPLETELY different meaning like ‘media’ (sock) and ‘medio’ (middle). This was bothering me, so I had to get it out. Sorry, not sorry. *Edit, I just found out that casito can be referenced as a small case, but even then I pretty sure people would regularly say "un caso pequeño" (a small case). Besides those two words have different meanings, signifying that your "proof" that Pedro wasn't the casita reincarnated because the Madrigals 'picture' the casita as a feminine figure is thrown out the window*

It more like how mirabel was practicing for becoming the next head. She is sympathetic, listens to others, looks into the situation and is encouraging. Like how others practice in there magical rooms, develop their powers and do not rely much on casita like abuela or mirabel does. So yeah.
DrawNeoisi 3 ay əvvəl
I think the same. Not much because Casita cant be controlled inside of the magical rooms, but because every Madrigal relies so much on the magic they inherited. You can see it when Luisa lost her gift she literally couldn't and wouldn't do anything, and when they tried to rescue the candle, Isabella and Camilo used their power to try to catch it (Not knowing what to do when they lost their powers in the middle of that act). But Mirabel's only magic she can rely on is the magic of casita. I feel is her way to feel part of the Madrigal family.

While it doesn’t show for all of the family, one thing I noticed is that Mirabel’s symbols on her clothes show appreciation for the beauty of her family’s gifts rather than a strict representation of what they are. Dolores’ clothes may have sound waves (noise), but Mirabel wears music. Julieta’s clothes are about herbs and healing, but Mirabel honors her with a warm meal.

From what I've honestly analyzed since Abuela founded the miracle, it makes sense that her name starts with an A (since it's Abuela Alma). Mirabel seems to be the representation of a physical and emotional bridge of the family (I may not know how to really say this), since the initial to her name would be MM (including her last name). So it's like AM (beginning, for Abuela since she founded the miracle), them MM (continuation for Mirabel to pass the miracle on).

Another detail I noticed was that Mirabel affected the gifts of her sisters: Luisa started losing her gift faster than everyone else did because Mirabel thought she was carrying too much after "Surface Pressure". But then during "What Else Can I Do?", when Mirabel is actively encouraging Isabela and hyping her up, Isabela's power grows so much that it extends all the way into town from Casita's rooftops. I really liked that detail!

@menjivarTv I think Luisa was the first affected because she probably was the only one to actually consider that maybe Mirabel was telling the truth about the cracks because we know Isabella doesn’t have the utmost respect for her and everyone else doesn’t understand her like Luisa and may have thought she called them over out of spite or jealousy of Antonio receiving a gift after she didn’t. that’s just my take on it though

I've been saying that since I first watched it lol. My kids were like she doesn't get a power! I was like, well I mean, she technically IS the power she's probably taking over for Abuela. A new age a new leader. No one believed me lol. Good to know that I might be right.

This video gave my brain some closure, tying up all those theories and thoughts in my own head so we'll 😂 one thing I will say though, it's never explicitly shown in the film that the doors start off with adult versions of the children once they recieve their gift. It is different to see with Antonio once we do! But its a magical house! I always assumed it just changes as they grow up. Like I'm sure Mirabels mother has a room with a door, right? It would be strange if it still looked like her as a teen. And the doors reflect their clothing and hair perfectly as well. Ik it's an animation and all the characters where the same outfit everyday 😭 but definitely seems important still. Showing is visuals on the door in the first place feels like a look into the magic of it all! Just me?👀

FINALLY! I've seen so many people talking about this movie as if Mirabel "didn't get a gift in the end," which wasn't how I read it at all. She got the same kind of gift Abuela got.

You know I thought her gift when I watched was she controls the house the best, that being in the evidence of this theory makes me happy

Just to clarify, the song "Dos oruguitas" actually talks about Abuela and Pedro as the song states "Dos oruguitas enamoradas" which translates to "two caterpillars in love with each other". As a native spanish speaker I understood what this song was about the very first time I listened to it, since in the movie it plays along abuela's memories of Pedro.

All the songs are about many things. That's why the movie is so compelling. Just look at the Bruno song. They're talking about Mariano, but they're actually talking about Bruno. They're talking about Bruno in the past, but they're really talking about Bruno in the present. The house is a cocoon they have to break out of and rebuild their lives together. There are many types of love.

@ZM Yeah, I listened to the English version too, and it is nice and holds the central theme of the original, but it isn't a word-for-word translation. Even if it was, some of the words in the original, like "enamoradas," don't have a direct translation

As a fellow Spanish speaker, I want to highlight this comment ^ English doesn't have a direct translation of the word "enamoradas," but this word could only describe Abuela Alma and Abuelo Pedro, or another couple in love with each other.

My theory: If you can see, the doorknob of Mirabel’s door had “M” on it. When Antonio gave her a doorknob at the end it also had an “M” on it. So I’m guessing that when Mirabel touched the doorknob some problem happened and the magic didn’t go into the door and just went into the doorknob. They kept the doorknob for a very long time and finally took it out. It was the doorknob Antonio gave to Mirabel. Mirabel then puts the doorknob in to the house’s door and everyone got their gift back. As you know, the candle already went out and it can’t generate any magic anymore. The magic in the house now is Mirabel’s. Mirabel’s magic is controlling the whole house.

My interpretation of Antonio's door featuring him as a child and not an adult was that since casita is pretty much alive and can change, the image of the person on the door grows with them. So when Antonio got his door he was depicted on it as a child, overtime the image would change and depict an older him as he would get older and the reason why the doors immediately showed the adult versions of their respective characters was just to make it clearer in the flashback. Idk that's just how I look at it...

hey man, after watching Encanto for the 30th time ( I have a 5 and 7 YOs, so I feel your pain) I hadn´t realized all these details... I still have 2 questions... why did the casita´s magic didn´t work in Bruno´s door and what about the pre'hispanic looking sculptures also inside his room... great content !!!!

I love the theory, but honestly, I stick to another explanation of the owners of the doors' depictions. I saw somewhere a theory that doors show family members of their age when the casita gets broken (and that's why Antonio is the only child-looking - because he is five when casita fell apart).

First time I watched this movie I literally said her gift was the same as Abuela's. I pointed it out that they both can "control" the house. But everyone was like "you're reading too much in to it"

Before I hear your theory: I'm gonna guess that the magic must be connected to a life force to stay with the family and the grandmother's life force has been waning. But since no one's explained that to the family everyone's fricking out!

That's a Talent NOT a power given by the house/candle If anything, she's giving herself the "Miracle" of talent to do those things She's literally the Miracle needed to bring the magic back The Candle may be gone but it's replaced with a new power source Mirabel herself her power is Miracles

5:34 Hey Matpat. Little correction, "Casita" is the small version of the word "Casa" which means house, and is a femenine word so the family didnt name it "Casita" because its a femine house, but because the word is femine and "Casito" isnt an actual word, but still thanks :3 Edit: Sorry, I forgot the word for small case existed, my bad

@shadebug you know diminutives can be used for affection and endearment right? also, hogar doesn't mean the same as casa, is more like home, like the feeling of home, not the physical object, and for me a Finca encompases the rural area around a farmhouse, and in here we are talking just about the house, the physical constuction of the house, not the surounding area, but that is just the definition I have

One key detail: she’s connected to the house, and the cracks only start become apparent to her when she’s really stressed out (Antonio’s ceremony, Isabela’s proposal, and her fight with Abuela), so there is a connection to casita right there. The cracks also only start appearing when Mirabel “doesn’t get a gift” and Bruno leaves, because Bruno repairs those cracks that appear because Mirabel is one with Casita. She also literally brings casita back to life, soooooooo yeah. That would also explain why she doesn’t hat a door, as instead, she has all of casita.

When the cracks first showed to the audience, it was during the party for Antonio. When Mirabel tried to show the family the cracks, they were all gone. Later on that night, Mirabel snuck over to the candle and heard Abuela talking about the magic fading and cracks in the house. That would mean that Abuela has seen OTHER cracks in the house outside of the ones caused during the movie. No?
