Encanto Bruno Song Recreated In Live-Action In TikTok

An inventive TikTok perfectly recreates a portion of Encanto's "We Don't Talk About Bruno" in live-action form. In November, Disney released its 60th animated feature with Encanto, a colorful story about a magical Colombian family. The movie centers on Mirabel (Stephanie Beatriz), the one member of the Madrigal family to not have a magical ability. Her mother, cousins, and sisters have all been blessed by the house they live in, making Mirabel the odd one out. However, when their casita shows signs of losing its power, it's up to Mirabel to save the day.

After receiving an exclusive theatrical release in November, Encanto debuted on Disney+ on Christmas Eve, or December 24. That has led to renewed attention being placed on Encanto and its soundtrack, which includes songs written by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. Like any Disney movie, favorites are bound to vary from fan to fan, but a popular song is the ensemble number "We Don't Talk About Bruno." When Mirabel turns to her family for more information about her missing uncle Bruno (John Leguizamo), they try to shut things down, but only end up giving her skewed ideas of who Bruno is.

Encanto's big Bruno number provides special moments for nearly every Madrigal, including shape-shifting Camilo (Rhenzy Feliz). TikTok user Slayego cleverly recreated Camilo's part in live-action form, shifting between Camilo's costume and his terrifying depiction of Bruno. It is a great display of both perfect editing and fan ingenuity.


Since its release, Encanto has become very popular online, with Bruno and Camilo standing as some of the most popular characters within the fanbase. Interestingly, Camilo has very limited screen time, but his shape-shifting abilities help him to stand out. As anyone who has seen Encanto knows, he presents a scary vision of Bruno to Mirabel that doesn't quite line up with reality. Nevertheless, "We Don't Talk About Bruno" is a fun number that really highlights the entire Madrigal family. Plus, it tends to stick in one's head.

Encanto arrived at a difficult time for moviegoing, yet it has managed to find success. While perhaps not grossing as much as a Disney movie might've in normal times, Encanto earned the biggest opening for an animated movie since the coronavirus pandemic began, and the online buzz surrounding the movie has only grown. With it earning some major awards nominations, Encanto just might become one of the Disney movies to stand the test of time - particularly because it has a catchy soundtrack that resonates with audiences.
