Very soon now, you’ll get to meet Mirabel and the magical Madrigals in Disney’s Encanto, coming exclusively to theaters in November (the Disney+ free ride is over, it appears).
As we’ve explained before, Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz) is the only member of her large Colombian family who has no special power to speak of. Little does she know the family is in danger and SHE is the only one who can save them! Just her luck…
In case you’ve been wondering just who can do what, Disney came out with an official list of the Madrigals and their powers. In no particular order, here’s what they can do…
ISABELA! (Diane Guerrero)
HER QUIRK: SPONTANEOUS FLOWER GENERATION
Isabela can make plants appear and accelerate their growth, leaving vibrant bouquets wherever she goes. This makes Isabela very popular, but she’s actually kind of insecure on the inside.
LUISA! (Jessica Darrow)
HER QUIRK: SUPER STRENGTH AND INSPIRING INTERNET FAN ART
Luisa can easily bench-press two pianos with both arms, but she’s also the most openly emotional of the bunch and it doesn’t take much to set her off.
JULIETA! (Angie Cepeda)
HER QUIRK: MAGICAL HEALING FOOD
Julieta is the town doctor and possesses the special ability to repair injuries through her cooking. She’s also the mother of all these people.
CAMILO! (Rhenzy Feliz)
HIS QUIRK: SHAPESHIFTING
That was Camilo in the first trailer greeting the other family members at the door by turning into them. He’s got one of the coolest and most useful powers of the gang; we’ll see how he puts them to use.
PEPA! (Carolina GaitÃ¡n)
HER QUIRK: CONTROLLING THE WEATHER
But it’s not as smooth and stable as Ororo Munroe makes it look…Pepa’s weather powers are directly tied to her feelings at the moment. If she’s sad, grab an umbrella. If she’s angry, seek cover quickly.
ANTONIO! (Ravi-Cabot Conyers)
HIS QUIRK: COMMUNICATING WITH ANIMALS
The Maribels’ resident Doolittle can speak to the beasts and understand what they say.
HER QUIRK: SUPER HEARING
You can’t keep your secrets from Dolores; she can hear a whisper from twelve blocks away. She can understand anything except what Antonio and the dog are talking about.
BRUNO! (John Leguizamo)
HIS QUIRK: SEEING THE FUTURE
Disney isn’t ready to tell us anything about Bruno yet, except that he doesn’t live at the Maribels’ house — he comes there to warn them about something, and he factors into the plot in a big way.
AUGUSTIN! (Wilmer Valderrama)
HIS QUIRK: NOTHING
Wait a minute, we were told Maribel was the only powerless family member here. That’s what the trailers have been telling us — when has a trailer ever, ever lied? Anyway, he’s Maribel’s dad, which means his regressive genes only passed to her — everyone else got to do cool stuff.
Disney’s Encanto will open in theaters November 24.
