By the end of Encanto, we see Dolores united with her prince charming - or at least that is what it seems like from the outside. Theorists, when watching Encanto for the 100th time, my mind started thinking a little too hard about the whole Madrigal family and their magical, secluded town. Let's just say MAYBE they should hold off on the wedding for a while...

  • That’s fair but it’s revealed in the art book that Augustine is from outside the encanto so chances are there’s a trickle of people coming in

  • The main problem with the theory is that it’s been confirmed that people have come in from outside the village. Also, there were plenty of people living there even initially that inbreeding wouldn’t happen in just 50 years, which really isn’t that long when it comes to this topic.

  • The 50 rule is on an already isolated community. It's shown in the movie that the village is very genetically diverse with a wide range of skin and hair types, and body shapes. The village they originated from was probably one that had excellent trade and population movement

  • 1:40 Casita fixed itself. Casita's "health" is determined by the general mental/emotional state of Abuela/Mirabel, so, I don't really know exactly what counts as "bad enough mental health for Casita to be cracking" vs "good enough mental health for Casita to be cracking," but I think maybe just the fact that Mirabel was, at that point, distracted by the cracks rather than focusing on her internal depression (or whatever you want to call it) may have been sufficient for the cracks to go away. But hey, that's just a theory. A film theory!

    • Ironic: Mirabel panicking about the cracks made them disappear. Really, even assuming Bruno managed to seal up all the cracks in walls and floors seamlessly, and clean up the cieling tiles (which is a big stretch) there's no way he could repair the staircase.

    • I always thought Mirabel's Gift was the ability to bring the magic back to the Encanto if it's broken. Like her door was absorbed into her and then comes out again when the doorknob is replaced. Which is also why she has that close connection with casita, she's essentially part of the magic now. Abuela focused too much on the candle as the source of the "miracles" not realizing "the miracle is you," and so the casita knew things had to break before they could be fixed, and Mirabel is the right person to pick up the mantle as Matriarch after Abuela lost sight of what was truly important

  • A lot of people probably think you're exaggerating when you say you've seen the movie 50+ times with your kid, but as a parent I want to assure y'all that it's not an exaggeration. When a kid gets hooked they may watch a movie 2-5 times a day. Two weeks in and you've had it in the background 59+ times.

  • 50 years is not enough time for inbreeding to become a problem especially when a whole village is concerned unless they specifically tried to “keep it in the family” which i surely doubt is the case.

  • This actually works really well with my analysis that the breaking point for the house WAS the marriage, because Isa didn't love Mariano and Casita would not stand for the next generation of Madrigals to be raised in a loveless marriage. It had to be arranged carefully to hold off inbreeding, but it wouldn't be an emotionally healthy environment for children; so Casita just hit reboot on the whole thing to prevent generational disaster.

  • I thought about this in waaaaay to much detail during the height of my kid’s Encanto hype. My conclusion is that they are only on their 2nd/3rd generation of isolation so they likely haven’t started inbreeding yet. But they are only a few decades away from everyone being cousins so it’s probably a good thing that those mountains fell down.

  • Recently I've really enjoyed a small dystopian short film series by the name of Autodale. I think there is tons of potential for Film Theory to find out more about this world and would be a nice interlude while some other movies come out rather than having to do the same movies again and again. I think almost all of these videos are great but, I'm sure from a creative perspective doing the same movies can be a bit of a burn out. So I encourage MatPat and the Film Theorist's amazing minds to give Autodale a quick look to see if there is theory potential. I would love to see it if you do!

  • Mirabel, her sisters and cousins are the first generation of their family to be born within the Encanto. Presumably, there have only been one or two generations for other families in the village. Another comment mentioned how one of her family members (who married into the family) came from outside the village. But it couldn't hurt to have some more generic diversity lol

There was even going to be a love interest for Isabella that comes from outside the Encanto. Sorry y'all, unlike the last one you definitely missed with this.

  • 1:40 yes, I think Casita did fix itself and it does have the ability to do so, but it's mostly connected to the feelings of Mira (and maybe even Abuela). during the scene where Isa and Mira are singing What Else Can I Do, at the part where they stood in front of the candle and Isa hugs Mira, the cracks started to vanish (probably because Mira is happier being reconciled with her sister) so yeah, it's definitely not Bruno who did the fixing.

    • The thing is that's exactly what happens. With European nobility, everyone was a cousin to someone, with only the occasional soldier or wealthy commoner elevated to nobility. Therefore, genealogy was exceptionally important. Even after seeing what happened with the Hapsburgs, second and third cousin marriages were considered quite normal.

  • Regarding the road and the bridge, my interpretation is that Luisa is re-arranging the town for the wedding. That's why she's moving the church to a more central location, that's why she's diverting the river and moving the bridge because she diverted the river and now it flows on a new path, thus needed her to move the existing bridge to a new location.

    • Old Swede, thanks! Now that all makes sense. I've always wondered why on earth a church, a bridge and the whole river are being rerouted. Because the matron of the family wants everything to be perfect. (Or they just want to enlarge the village anyway, because new houses were built at the beginning of the film)
