1. After Augustin Discovers Mirabel’s Secret he Can’t Sit Next to Julieta
Perhaps you noticed that the couple go from sitting close together at the start of the movie, and then suddenly they change to to sitting apart from one another. There is a significant event that creates this change. If you noticed it you have been watching very carefully.
At the start of the film, the couple was always sitting next to each other. This changes as soon as Augustin discovers Mirabel’s secret. After that, he sits apart from her, knowing that if he is to sit next to her, she will manage to get the secret out of him immediately.
2. In The Movie Poster, Bruno Is Hidden
Did you notice Bruno hiding right at the back of the official poster of Encanto? Because at first, it looks like he does not even appear, and most people think he does not feature on the movie poster.
Yet, if you look very closely you can definitely see him hidden at the back. Next time you look, play find Bruno and see if you can locate him. He’s in the corner with his head down and he is wearing a cloak which is covering the majority of his head.
3. They Each Have Their Own Plate
Each family member has their own plate. The Madrigal plates are not just randomly patterned plates. Encanto’s extreme attention to detail means that each plate represents a member of the family. Each contains patterns that point to the family member.
Each member has something that symbolizes them. Which, is shown by the patterns on the plates. And if you’ve been watching very carefully you might have noticed that three of the plates have the same pattern. These plates represent Mirabel, Augustin, and Felix who have no powers.
4. Mirabel Sings in A Different Rhythm
Encanto is all about music. Everybody is listening to the tracks ever since it has been released and it’s literally topping the charts. So, if you have a very musical ear, you may have noticed this little detail. Because Mirabel sings in a ¾ rhythm whereas the rest of her family sings in a 4/4 beat rhythm.
Now, this little detail would be missed by many but it just shows how great Encanto is, its attention to detail puts it above way other children’s movies. And what’s the significance of this? It shows she’s not on the same page as the others in her family. It’s symbolic of their differing attitudes.
