Encanto Summary

I won’t give the entire movie away, but the plot of Ecanto revolves around the Family Madrigal who has been blessed with a magical home (Casita!) and impressive powers.

With powers to create flowers, heal the sick, and speak to animals just three of the many gifts on offer, it’s unsurprising that the family is popular with the local community!

But there’s just one problem.

One member of the family was never given a special gift at her ceremony – and her name is Mirabel Madrigal.

She’s sweet and funny, but she feels outside of her family because she failed to receive an all-important gift.

When the Casita begins to lose its magic and crumble beneath the family’s feet, it’s up to Mirabel to save the miracle and restore the status quo.
