In turn, the magic of Encanto has blessed every child in the family with a unique gift from super strength to the power to heal—every child, however, except Mirabel. When she discovers that the magic surrounding Encanto is in danger, Mirabel soon realizes that being ordinary might just hold the key to saving her exceptional family.

Along her journey, Raya learns that it will take more than a dragon to save the world: she would have to open her heart to trust again.
