Encanto’s Director Explains Why The Madrigals Have Gifts And Not Superpowers
Share this @internewscast.com


When Encanto was released last year, fans took to social media to express just how much they related to the various songs and characters. Some were even calling for the Disney production to head to Broadway after the animated film secured an Oscar win at the 94th Academy Awards. What viewers seemed to like a lot is that each member of the Madrigal family had a unique gift, which was at the core of their personalities and strengths. Though some may question why their magical abilities are not referred to as superpowers. Co-director Jared Bush has now explained the interesting reasoning behind this distinction, and it totally makes sense.

Encanto centers around the Madrigals and the wonderful abilities that they use to help their community. Sounds like a family of superheroes, right? Well, not exactly.  When responding to a fan who wanted clarification regarding the family’s abilities being called “gifts” instead of “superpowers,” Jared Bush explained on Twitter that it was a conscious choice. He even listed three distinct reasons, one of which does involve heroes:

Yes. Three reasons – 1) ‘gifts’ felt more like how special talents and abilities are described in a family context, 2) miracle—>gift felt like a more natural progression, 3) ‘powers’ felt too superhero-ish and we wanted to avoid that connection as much as we could.
