It would be so weird to be a normal villager living in the encanto during the few days we see in the movie.
Mirabel yelling about the house cracking and the candle almost dying, then everyone finding the house intact
Luisa was probably seen sobbing while running home when she noticed that her gift was weakening
Mirabel starts asking around about Bruno, people share their petty annoyances but don't think much of it
Standing outside Casita during the engagement dinner, thinking everything's going fine, then looking inside to Pepa making a raincloud, Antonio's animals going out of control, Casita cracking like Mirabel said, and Mariano having a broken nose (plus more of Luisa sobbing)
The magic is strong! Everything is fine! We are the Madrigals!" (door slam) "MIRABEEEEL"
Gossiping about what could've possibly happened at the Madrigal/Guzmán dinner, then cacti suddenly erupt from everyone's porches while the sisters everyone could've sworn hated each other whoop and play on the roof with Señora Perfecta Isabela™ loving to be an absolute mess
Casita crumbles to the ground, one of the roads breaks in half, one of the mountains splits, and Mirabel goes missing
Alma and Mirabel coming back on good terms, dragging along the estranged and missing-for-years Madrigal uncle everyone had petty annoyances about
Deciding "fuck it, this family has probably had a weirder couple of days than we have, we might as well help them rebuild after everything they've done for us"
There's a little detail in Encanto that I love and I haven't seen anyone talked about.
And it's the fact that, at the end, they didn't villanice Mariano.
They could so easily made him a Gaston like character, an idiot, aggressive, jealous and over all an awful man.
But they didn't, and it shows kids that a person doesn't have to be a freaking walking red flag in order for you to not want to be in a relationship with them.
You could just not like them, who knows why, but you are not obligated to like them.
Mariano is the perfect man, hell he's a perfect human. And still Isabela didn't want to marry him, who knows why, we can only speculate. But in the movie they show that her decision and feeling are valid nonetheless.
You could just not feel compatible with someone, you could just not see yourself in a romantic relationship (or even friendship) with that person, and that's enough, you don't need an excuse.
P. D. I love how they show that he's also perfect for the family by the fact that he actually cares for everyone in the family, him being the one who asked Mirabel if she's fine during the proposal dinner and also one of the first who goes to help rebuild casita.
i couldn't not make an encanto animatic from this scene from The Gay Deceivers (1969). sadly, i don't have a better quality copy on hand (everything was filmed & edited on tektak) so to prove that i made it, here are some stills:
also for some reason, t/umblr couldn't open any link to the video (believe me, i tried everything), so just copy this instead: https://vt.tiktok.com/ZSdXLmMbG/?k=1
EDIT: THANK GOD MY FRIEND SAVED A COPY FOR ME DHJSHDKS THANK YOUUU 😭😭😭
fun fact: this was my very first animatic too (/^v^)/
