Synopsis: The Madrigals are an extraordinary family who live hidden in the mountains of Colombia in a charmed place called the Encanto. The magic of the Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift -- every child except Mirabel. However, she soon may be the Madrigals last hope when she discovers that the magic surrounding the Encanto is now in danger.
Original Story by: Byron Howard and Jared Bush

Open your eyes.

This is where our magic comes from?

Mmm-hmm. This candle holds the miracle given to our family.

Long ago, when my three babies had just been born, your Abuelo Pedro and I were forced to flee our home.

And though many joined us, hoping to find a new home, we could not escape the dangers and your Abuelo was lost.

But in our darkest moment, we were given a miracle.

The candle became a magical flame that could never go out.

And it blessed us with a refuge in which to live.

A place of wonder.

An Encanto.

An Encanto. The miracle grew.

And our house, our casita itself came alive to shelter us.

When my children came of age, the miracle blessed each with a magic Gift to help us.

And when their children came of age…

They got magic too.

That's right. And together, our family’s Gifts have made our new home a paradise.

Tonight, this candle will give you your Gift, mi vida.

Strengthen our community, strengthen our home.

Make your family proud.

Make my family proud. Yes, yes casita, we're going.

What do you think my Gift will be?

You are a wonder, Mirabel Madrigal.

Whatever Gift awaits will be just as special as you.


Morning Abuelo!

Hey! When’s the magic Gift happen?

My cousin’s ceremony is tonight.

What’s his Gift?

We’re gonna find out!

What’s your Gift?

Who’s asking?


Well, “us,” I can’t just talk about myself.

I’m only part of the amazing Madrigals.

Who’s all the amazing Madrigals?

Ah, you’re not gonna leave me alone, are you? Casita, help me out.




Let’s go!

This is our home We’ve got every generation

So full of music A rhythm of its own design

This is my family A perfect constellation

So many stars And everybody gets to shine


But let’s be clear Abuela runs this show


She led us here So many years ago


And every year Our family blessings grow

There’s just a lot You simply got to know so

Welcome to the family Madrigal

The home Of the family Madrigal

We’re on our way

Where all the people are fantastical

And magical

I’m part Of the family Madrigal

But I don’t know who is who.

All right, all right, relax!

It is physically impossible to relax!

Tell us everything!

What are your powers?

Just tell us what everyone can do!

And that’s why coffee’s for grown-ups.

(SINGING) My tía Pepa Her mood affects the weather

When she’s unhappy

Well, the temperature Gets weird

My tío Bruno

We don’t talk about Bruno!

They say he saw the future One day he disappeared

Oh And that’s my mom Julieta

Here’s her deal


The truth is she can heal you With a meal


Her recipes Are remedies for real

If you’re impressed Imagine how I feel


Welcome to the family Madrigal

The home Of the family Madrigal

Hey, coming through!

But work and dedication Will keep the miracle burning

And each new generation Must keep the miracle burning

Wait, who’s the sister and who’s the cousin?

There are so many people!

How do you keep them all straight?

Okay, okay, okay.
