The animated film Encanto tells the story of a Colombian family with magical powers. It debuted in the fall of 2021. While escaping her home from armed conflict, a young Alma Madrigal loses her husband Pedro but saves her three infant children Julieta, Pepa, and Bruno. Alma has a magical candle that creates a sentient house, the "Casita", for the Madrigals to live in. A village grows thanks to the protective Casita, with the Madrigal family gaining superhuman abilities they use to help the villagers. However, Bruno's gift of precognition causes multiple conflicts that lead to him being ostracized by the family, while Mirabel, the youngest daughter of Julieta, has no special ability. The night after Pepa's son Antonio gains the ability to speak to animals, Mirabel suddenly sees the Casita cracking, but her warnings fall on deaf ears. Mirabel, resolving to save the magic of the Casita, goes around to investigate and question her family members. Her older sister Luisa, who possesses superhuman strength, suggests that Bruno's room may hold some clues to the phenomenon. There, Mirabel sees a cave of sand and an image supposedly showing her being the cause of the Casita falling apart. After Mirabel leaves, she discovers that the gifts of her family members are starting to weaken. She learns of the impending engagement of her cousin Isabela, who can make flowers grow at will, to a man named Mariano.
