Disney’s Encanto Characters Revealed

Encanto will be released on November 24, 2021 and we have been given a first look at the characters through the toy that features the Madrigal household.

Maribel (originally named Mariana), is a 15-year-old girl who is described as a “lovable, funny, fallible, utterly human protagonist”. The toy photos show Maribel as the figurine with the glasses and harmonica.

We don’t know specifics about the other characters in the family, but it is likely that the character who is lifting weights is Lydia, who is an athletic jock with a big voice and persona and will play a supporting role in the film. The boy with the parrot is likely Carlos, a 15-year old boy and also Maribel’s enemy. The lady in the blue dress is probably Andrea (the matriarch of the family) or Juana, a maternal figure for Maribel. The other characters are less clear, though it is possible that the girl in the orange dress is Ines, the golden child of the family.

It has been reported that Stephanie Beatriz will play the main character of Maribel Madrigal, though this has yet to be confirmed by Disney.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
