Plot summary

What is Encanto movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Encanto" movie plot summary.

While escaping her home from conquerors, a young woman named Alma Madrigal (María Cecilia Botero) loses her husband Pedro but saves her three infant children Julieta, Pepa, and Bruno (John Leguizamo). In an "Encanto", a candle Alma held onto is enchanted and creates a sentient "Casita" for the Madrigals to live in.
A village grows thanks to the Casita, which protects the village, and the magic imbues the Madrigal family - for which Alma becomes better known as "Abuela" - with special "gifts", or superhuman abilities. It is around the nature of the magic's involvement with gifts, however, that Julieta's youngest daughter Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz) becomes excluded: Bruno and his gift of precognition are vilified due to the unpredictable nature of Bruno's visions and everyone's inability to properly understand each vision's relation to the future; while Mirabel, despite not being as ostracized, does not get a gift at all. On the day Antonio, Pepa's youngest son, is to receive a gift, Mirabel still gives the former the courage to go through with the ceremony. Antonio gets the ability to speak with animals and the whole town celebrates while Mirabel, though happy for him, remains saddened for lack of her own gift.
That night, Mirabel suddenly sees cracks forming around the Casita and the candles starting to flicker; but when Mirabel tries to warn everyone, she finds everything seemingly normal. Mirabel later learns that Abuela does indeed believe her and decides to save the magic of the Casita. After asking Pepa's daughter and oldest child Dolores, who has enhanced hearing, Mirabel confronts her older sister Luisa (Jessica Darrow), who has super strength, and gets her to confess that she feels overburdened by the family. Luisa reveals she felt weaker upon seeing the cracks before suggesting to Mirabel that Bruno's room may hold some clues to the mysterious tremors.
