Mirabel Madrigal is the protagonist of the upcoming Walt Disney Animation Studios feature film Encanto.[1]


Mirabel is the youngest daughter of the family.


Mirabel is an optimistic young girl who, despite her lack of having a magical gift, manages to scrape by with her down to earth approach to solving problems.

Physical appearance

Mirabel is a 15-year old[1] teenage girl of Colombian descent with hazel eyes, thick black eyebrows, black curly hair, and visible dark shade of freckles on her nose and cheeks. She wears green round-framed glasses, and a white shirt with black trimming on it and colorful butterfly stitching on it and in the middle of her dress it has her name stitched on it. She wears a light blue long skirt with colorful butterfly prints on it and sandals with pink linking on it. Additionally, she wears blue earrings.

Powers and abilities

Mirabel has no powers, unlike the rest of her family, but she does appear to possess some knowledge of playing the accordion, though not perfectly.


  • Mirabel is not only the fourth Disney animated protagonist to wear glasses (after Milo Thatch, Chicken Little, and Lewis Robinson), but the first female protagonist to do so.
    • Initially, during the "Vanellope and the princesses" sequence in Ralph Breaks the Internet, Snow White was to reveal she was actually nearsighted and needed glasses. There was even some merchandise portraying Snow White wearing glasses, but, for some reason, this trait was dropped.
  • Early in production, the character's name was Mariana.[2]
  • Mirabel is the second human female protagonist from the Disney Animated Canon to debut in 2021, after Raya from Raya and the Last Dragon.
    • This marked the first time in history that two human female protagonists from two different Walt Disney Animation Studios films debuted in the same year.
