  1. The first thing Bruno does in any spinoff would have to be holding a workshop for interpreting his predictions. Mirabel is the TA because she was the only one with the sense to actually try. “Now the first thing we are going to learn class, is the difference between correlation, and causation!”

    Before watching: oh gods, I’m going to cry, I am the Bruno of my family and even today, knowing that to do so would ruin my mental health I want to go and support them. Especially my (very abusive) father who was recently diagnosed with BPD. I… you know how you form a defensive hate for someone, but then you find out something that kind of re-aligns things and the knew understanding makes it seem like redemption is in reach if you can just be the support they need? I won’t, I can’t, but it eats at me that I want to.

    Bruno did not need to apologise so much. It’s not his fault, he didn’t cause these things to happen… 🥺💖

  4. there’s a point in the we don’t talk about Bruno song where you can see the real Bruno hiding in the background, he’s dancing to the song, like the song is a negative thing about him but he’s enjoying the catchy song his family made up

  5. wow, this is exactly like my upbringing :/

  6. Bruno is like the pokemon Absol…!

    12:02 The “knock on wood” is I think a reference to a common superstition in parts of Latin America, that when you mention a potential negative outcome (ex: “i hope he doesn’t get into an accident”), knocking on wood is supposed to “dispel” those words and prevent said thing from becoming true.
    Therefore having Bruno (who can see the future) obsessively knock on wood is actually a clever cultural reference ^^

    “To heal the family, you gotta heal the family” such wise words. Gotta agree with that, usually the problem in family isn’t just one

    I love that they said not to talk about Bruno, and at the end they all talk about Bruno. Just like us.
    Such a wholesome and heartwarming animated movie

    One part that ALWAYS makes me cry is in the last song when the family sings to admirable.
    “We see how bright you burn
    We see how brave you’ve been.
    Now see yourself in turn
    You’re the real miracle kid, let us in.”

    All her pain is acknowledged and she is accepted. 😭😭😭

    I’ve said it before: I think young Delores _did_ say something, but when you hear a little kid saying something like “I hear tio Bruno talking in the walls!” people just kinda roll their eyes and go, _”Sure_ you do, honey,” and go right on assuming that she’s just being imaginative, and after a while she gave up trying to convince them and just saw it as her own tragic little secret that she knew about. She would listen to him fondly and think, _I hear you, Bruno, even if I’m the only one._
