Encanto Theory Makes Isabela Much More Powerful Than She Realizes

Isabela Madrigal discovered new aspects to her gift in Encanto, but a theory could mean she is way more powerful than she ever realized.

One new Encanto theory suggests Isabela Madrigal is much more powerful than she realizes. Isabela (Diane Guerrero) is Mirabel’s (Stephanie Beatriz) eldest sister, and her gift gives her the ability to generate and manipulate flora. For the majority of Encanto, Isabela creates roses that are viewed as perfect flowers and it is not until later in the movie that she realizes her power extends beyond her rigid expectations of it.

Isabela is viewed as the golden child and Mirabel holds a lot of resentment towards her because of it, especially as Mirabel doesn’t think she has a gift at all. There is a lot of pressure on Isabela to live up to this perfect image and Abuela ( María Cecilia Botero) is the hardest on Isabela, which Mirabel doesn’t realize at first. When Mirabel does reach out to Isabela and realizes the pressure on her, Isabela lets go of the expectations and her gift exceeds her expectations of it, creating different plants and even producing color out of thin air.
