What Are the Madrigal Family's Powers in 'Encanto'?

Encanto, which was released on Disney+ on Friday, December 24, is about a family blessed with magical powers.

Told from the point-of-view of non-magical character Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz), Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical sees her struggling to accept her lack of powers and the way it impacts her place in the family.

The Madrigal family members have various powers, each bestowed upon them by a magical candle that was bequeathed to Mirabel's grandmother Abuela Alma (María Cecilia Botero) when her husband was killed.

Here is everything you need to know about each character, and what their unique powers are.


Bruno (John Leguizamo) is Mirabel's uncle who went missing several years prior to the time the film is set, disappearing after seeing an ominous vision.

The character has the ability to predict the future and see things that will come to pass, with his visions sometimes changing depending on the actions the person involved takes.

His ability made him an outcast in his family, though, because everyone around him perceived his predictions as a bad omen.


Pepa (Carolina Gaitán) is Mirabel's aunt, and her power helps her change the weather with just her mood.

The character's feelings can turn a sunny day into a storm in an instant, and if she gets stressed then a raincloud will hang over her head.


Mirabel's mother Julieta (Angie Cepeda) has the ability to heal a person's wounds or illness with one simple thing: her cooking.

No matter the ailment that is bothering a person, one bite of Julieta's food and they will be right as rain.


Mirabel has two sisters, and the eldest is Luisa (voiced by Jessica Darrow) who has superhuman strength thanks to the family's magical candle.

While she can pick up anything, from a cartful of donkeys to a whole building, Luisa struggles with the pressure of putting all of her family's burdens on her shoulders.


Isabela (Diane Guerrero) is Mirabel's second sister and she is seen as being "perfect" in every way, which is reflected in her power.

She can make flowers grow with just a touch of her hand and she predominantly makes roses bloom, but she also learns to make other, less appealing flowers.


Pepa's eldest daughter is named Dolores (Adassa) and she has enhanced hearing that allows her to hear absolutely anything from miles away.

Her ability means she is aware of "everyone's dirt" and has also known of Bruno's whereabouts for years, despite the family not knowing what happened to him after his last ominous vision.


Camilo (Rhenzy Feliz) is Dolores' younger brother and he has the ability to shapeshift into anyone he has ever met.

Still young, Camilo will often shape-shift into a person in front of them for fun.


Antonio (Ravi-Cabot Conyers) is the youngest member of the Madrigal family, and the film opens with his initiation ceremony which revealed what his power was, and if he even had one.

While Antonio was initially scared that he wouldn't have a power like Mirabel, the ceremony revealed he had the ability to communicate with animals.

Encanto is available to stream on Disney+ now, and it is also in US theaters.
