Encanto: Fan Theory offers an explanation for one of Disney animation’s lingering questions

A fan theory has claimed to answer one of the lingering questions viewers have about Disney’s recent animated musical. Encanto.

The film, released in Disney Plus in December, focuses on the story of a magic house that begins to malfunction.

Stephanie Beatriz voiced Mirabel Madrigal, the main character of the film and the only member of her family to have no magical powers.

Although the film never explains why Mirabel was given miraculous gifts as a child, viewers have come up with an explanation for the story.

In the film, it is unclear exactly how the magical powers are first attributed, with the main possibility that it is determined by the house, or the magical candle that creates the house.

ONE Popular theory shared with Reddit by user “thegreendorito123” suggesting that the answer may lie in Alma, the matriarch of the family, known in the film as Abuela (the Spanish word for “grandmother”).

In theory, Mirabel was given a gift, like her Abuela, because she was the successor to the village leader.

Among the evidence used to substantiate this speculation is the fact that Alma was aged during the events of Encantoand will probably die before too long – and the film never specifies how traditions will be continued during the event.

“Mirabel and Alma are the only two people who can communicate with the casita in the movie,” reads the post. “This may indicate some special relationship with the casita and in turn, the magic in the house.”

“I think the reason why Mirabel doesn’t have a room in the casita is because her room is Alma’s room. When Alma resigns as village leader, Mirabel will inherit the room and become the village’s new leader. “

Encanto Now available to stream on Disney Plus.
