Encanto, a recent famous Disney movie, is the story of the Madrigal family.

Are you also vibing to that trending song on Instagram reels where the whole Madrigal family is singing about Bruno, precisely when they mean they do not talk about him?

Bruno turns out to be the reprobate among the Madrigals.

He can see the future, and his green eyes start laminating whenever he uses his superpowers.

If you wonder, “How tall is Bruno in Encanto?” This article is for you!

Seven feet is the height mentioned in the song, but is that true? It is a matter of discussion.

Bruno- The Villain

What is the thing about him that scares everyone? Why does his family react in such a way in that song?

For this, the answer can be he’s got eyes that doubt, and he’s got a heart that cares so much for rats.

‘That doesn’t sound scary’ might be your thought. Don’t judge too quickly, not yet. His visions can only cause trouble.

All his predictions were doomsaying, predicting every misfortune of the town and the Madrigal family.

The hate towards him for his misfortune predictions was high. But still, his family always loved him because that is how families are meant to be, right?

Accepting the flaws of someone is a part of true love and being a family.

The rat lover, the laminating green eye owner, the misfortune predictor- none of this mattered to the Madrigal family.

Why make a song that accuses Bruno?

“Then why that song?”

I know you want the reasons.

Pepa and Juliet are two siblings of Bruno. All three of them were born as triplets to Alma and Pedro Madrigal.

The moment Bruno is born, there is an attack on their house. Thereon starts the list of Bruno’s misfortune.

Listening closely to that song makes you realize that Pepa and Felix sing and complain.

Bruno says something for fun at Pepa’s wedding, which is mistaken for a prediction, and his statement kindles Pepa’s anxiety causing much trouble on the big day.

Bruno and his lovely nieces:

Encanto is the name of the town they are in, and Mirabel Madrigal is the main character of this movie.

Mirabel’s magic didn’t work when she tried it as a kid.

The family asks Bruno to predict the future and tell if Mirabel will ever get her superpowers.

His vision turns out to be a little bad, and as an uncle, his emotions trigger, and he stops the eye and disappears into thin air without any trace.

“Where did he go?” you may ask.

Well, he hid among the rats inside the walls of the house. The walls were his ears, and he could hear everything.

He was in that wall for a decade.

He spent his time listening and healing the cracks in the wall. All his nieces almost forgot him.

Dolores was the only person who knew of his presence but never uttered a word throughout the decade of Bruno’s hiding.

Dolores’ superpower is enhanced hearing, which is why she can hear Bruno inside the walls. She knew of his presence and his kind nature.

Bruno’s future prediction for her also ends badly, but still, Dolores never hates her uncle.

She knew of everyone’s secret because of her power. She never intended to but still revealed them at times.

But, the mystery about Bruno’s presence never left her mouth for all ten years. She confesses it only after showing her love for Mariano Guzman.

Bruno’s real height:

After spending ten years in his secret hide-out, Bruno comes back to his niece Mirabel, and that is when he understands that his whole family misses him.

There was always love for him, no matter what his powers put him through.

His kind heart was always caring towards his family.

“So, really, how tall is Bruno in Encanto?” He was like any other 50-year-olds, 5 foot and 4 inches tall.

But are you wondering why he has to help Mirabel?

Bruno and Mirabel – the tough Madrigals:

He can relate to Mirabel. Both of them have been through the same situation and feel inferior; they believe they are not up to the expectations of the Madrigal family, that they are weaker and don’t fit in.

Bruno went through all of that a generation ago and hid.

Looking at Mirabel going through the same pressures, he chooses to support her.

The support was absent when he suffered from the curse, a consequence of his powers.

No one wants to take the blame away from him when he disappears. He is accustomed to living with the responsibility.

When Mirabel elopes, he decides to find her.

When he sees Alma and Mirabel together, he enters the conversation pulling all the blame towards himself.

He thinks it doesn’t matter what his mother thinks; the only thing he wants at that moment is to take away all the blame from Mirabel. That is the love he has for his family.

His intention was never to cause trouble to them. And he also didn’t want to leave them, so he decided to stay behind walls.


Bruno is finally accepted by the Madrigal family and the townsfolk of Encanto.

He helps in reconstructing the Casa Madrigal.

He is not a side character in the film; he and Mirabel are in the same position. They are the ones that their family needs. They are the heroes of Encanto.

The magical powers are passed down for generations in that household.

On their 5th birthday, Madrigals are blessed with power. The only person who never receives magical powers is Mirabel Madrigal, and the one who suffers most because of the forces is Bruno Madrigal.

How tall is Bruno in Encanto became a huge question discussed worldwide for one reason, the song’s lyrics- that seven-foot and rats at the back caused all the arguments.

This 5 feet 4 inches guy just wanted to be with his family, but his power became his curse.
