Film Theory: Encanto, The Madrigal Family SECRET!

Film Theory: Encanto, The Madrigal Family SECRET!

Get your Theory Wear! ►

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…

    Kinda impressive how MatPat was able to take a movie like Encanto and managed to conclude that everyone was simply a result of methodically planned out inbreeding.

  2. Poke-talia says:

    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

    • Joshua Everett says:

      Anyone under 50 had to have been born there, at a minimum. Even though the triplets present as much younger at the time of the film, all three are 50, and Julieta and Pepa would have been in their late 20s at the births of their oldest daughters, Isabella and Dolores, who are both 21 presently. Felix and Augustin were almost certainly among those original children among the refugees. We only see at most ten other people who look to be between Abuela’s age or older and the triplet’s age. Assuming that the Encanto was truly sealed off during this time, as the director and writer have stated, only around 50 of the total initial population would still be around and counting toward the population total. Though the grandkids were the first generation of Madrigals born in the Encanto, there are approximately 28 years before their births available for the rest of the population to grow.

    • Margarita says:

      @Child Of Icarus Alma’s children were born before el encanto. Children born immediately after el encanto would have been conceived on the outside.

    • Samurai Forever91 says:

      I feel like Senkos in Dr. Stones inbreeding explanation makes sense no one will be related after certain point.

    • Child Of Icarus says:

      right? there was at MOST two generations born within the encanto, brunos generation, born just before, or just after the encantos creation, and mirabel’s generation, born from those of bruno’s generation. there is 100% something to say about what would of happened if the encanto hadnt opened up though., like imagine if the mountain didnt crack, another generation or two and matpat might of had a point

    • Poke-talia says:

      @Kyufus idk. I keep reporting them and blocking them.

  3. Wylan Vallotton says:

    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.

    • pelahnar4 says:

      @LordOfSpaghetti I would specifically watch/listen to “Be a Man” on repeat for hours a day, for I don’t even know how long

    • pikaseel says:

      Man, I miss being that easily entertained.

    • Rebecca Richar says:

      As the cousin who is put in charge of all of my younger cousins, I can confirm this as well. My cousin Shiloh was hooked on the Lion King and the Lion King 2 for about a year before we got her to stop because the VCR tape was “broken.” After that, I’ve made sure to get my cousins hooked on shows rather than movies so that there’s a little more variety in what we’re watching. lmao

    • {Bat -Chan } says:

      Yeah, I remember that when I was younger (6-7) I just put movies over and over again like I could watch tangled 20 times in a week

    • LordOfSpaghetti says:

      As a kid I would just replay mulan over an over and over again, and any time movies are brought up my parents just shove in and mention mulan…

  4. Red Tiger Rt says:

    I love how mat pat is one of the nicest people ever and he starts with topics like inbreeding and cannibalism

    • Rea444 says:

      A lot of nice people like strong/violent/taboo subjects in fictional media because that doesn’t affect their personality at all. MatPat is a clear example of that. He’s the sweetest and nicest guy, and he loves horror media.

    • Travis says:

      Wait you measn this isn’t a normal conversation topic?

    • ꧁ Karin angel ---------👇💋꧂ says:

      I’d love to be Directsqirt.MonSter
      is my idol. Hes the person I aspire to be, hes my light of day…

    • Степан Бандера🇺🇦 says:

      MatPat and Anime is a brain burner!(Правдивое видео):.

  5. Shaledic Studios says:

    “We haven’t stopped” is the struggle of a parent, good luck with the rest of the movie binge watching Mat

    • SCP-999 says:

      @Fulton J Wingba Jr. oh boy religious bots

    • Frozenfire darknight says:

      fun fact, whenever I’m in the car with my little brother, we always listen to the Disney Movies like Encanto and Turning Red (as well as some other songs)
      thankfully, we’re not always in the same car most of the time, so I don’t need to worry about those same songs stuck in my head.

    • ꧁ Karin angel ---------👇💋꧂ says:

      🥰❤️❤️ Todas muito lindas. Mas em primeiro lugar juntas as de números 10 e 1. Uma .Directsqirt.MonSter morena e outra loira.Seria injusto se eu escolhece duas são as minhas preferidas no topo da son beleza feminina.

    • Jedric Jay Jariel says:

      Bro you have so many bots there

  6. Lynda - 💞Mєєt mє-Cʜᴇᴄk mу🤳pяσfιℓe says:

    It’s actually said by one of the creators that Julieta can cure everything, even her husband and daughter’s eyesight, but she gives them a choice.

    • Isla Sullivan says:

      @RelTheBell Simple bc they are fine with having to wear glasses.

    • bubbledoubletrouble says:

      If there’s physical component to their visual impairments, there’s nothing contradictory.

    • Pierwiastek z 293 says:

      That makes zero sense, lol. Unless literally nobody knows about this choice and they just assume Julietta can only heal injuries, which makes her power effectively limited to injuries only (like Isabella’s power was effectively limited to flowers until proven otherwise).

    • soɔǝʇıdolɐɹʇsn∀ says:

      How does that work tho? Does that mean that the person needs to know what is wrong to be cured? What if someone had cancer and was never cured because they didnt knew? Would a person who tried to put their own life at risk be able to be cured?

  7. x Cocoa Cream x says:

    Some people: wow what a great kids movie that talks about some family problems but in the end everything becomes great!

    MatPat while watching Encanto with his 3 year old family member: *hold my apple juice*

  8. KAYLA BOND!!T[A]P Me!! to Have [𝐒]𝐄𝐗 With 𝐌𝐞 says:

    I love how much Matpat goes and puts lots of his time in just one video.

  9. Charles Lee says:

    IF one of the next generation of kids (the offspring of Camilo, or Isabela, or whomever) had a child who could teleport, that child could help extend the family line, and ensure that inbreeding wouldn’t happen. That child could teleport outside of the Encanto, and would bring someone back.

  10. sewing thread gem says:

    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

    • Hank Sandy says:

      @Kewtie just remembered matpat covered how she cant heal certain things like the source of her dad’s allergy. So yeah they probs both need those glasses, and color-blindness could occur within the village.

    • Kewtie says:

      @Hank Sandy assuming her reason for needing glasses isn’t genetic. Doesn’t her dad have glasses too?

    • Hank Sandy says:

      @*Melody*Moon* movie changes from the book, too. Maybe his forth channel could be Book Theory… he could cover many books not made into movies, he could cover some garbo movies that been majorly altered from their book form, etc

    • Hank Sandy says:

      @Kewtie mirabels glasses could be fake and just for style, as the healing mom is way too op and has no reason not to heal her sight, and she did heal Mirabel’s cut hand, and imassuming her healing gift isnt selective, cause why would it be? So yeah fake glasses probs
