Dolores’ ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno’ Verse From ‘Encanto’ Got a ‘Hamilton’ Remix on Social Media
“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” became a fan-favorite track of Encanto viewers. One TikTok user even remixed this track with another hit written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and featured in Broadway’s Hamilton.
Here’s what we know about Dolores’ iconic “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” verse from Disney’s film.
‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno’ is one of the most popular songs from Disney’s ‘Encanto’
Sometimes, family weirdos just get a bad reputation. When Mirabel discovers one of Bruno’s visions, however, this character (voiced by Stephanie Beatriz) went on an adventure to learn about her estranged uncle Bruno.
Of course, that half-secret introduction came with the original song “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” written by Miranda for the 2021 release Encanto. Now, Disney fans everywhere are talking about Bruno, with this song even surpassing the popularity of Frozen’s “Let It Go.”
“By the time I got back, ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno’ had kind of taken over the world along with the rest of the Encanto soundtrack,’” Miranda said during an interview with Bloomberg. “It helps you have the perspective of — the opening weekend is not the life of the movie. It’s just the very roughest draft. Two months out, people are talking about Bruno and his whole family.”
This track featured characters like Camilo, Dolores, and Mirabel’s Tía Pepa, each sharing their experience with Bruno — pre-disappearance.
‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno’ got a ‘Hamilton’ remix thanks to 1 TikTok user
Dolores’ verse in “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” became a favorite of many Disney fans, some sharing videos of themselves dancing to the lyrics. One fan even remixed this verse with Miranda’s Tony Award-winning Broadway production, Hamilton. That’s “Satisfied,” originally performed by the character Eliza Schuyler.
“I guess y’all like Hamilton/Encanto mashups,” musician Jacob Sutherland captioned his TikTok video, earning thousands of likes and views in the process.
Hamilton wouldn’t be the only musical production created by Miranda, as the composer recently starred in a movie-musical adaptation of In the Heights. Encanto cast member Beatriz appeared in this 2021 production as Carla. Miranda also had a role in the music production for Disney’s animated film Moana.
‘The Family Madrigal’ was also remixed with a famous ‘Hamilton’ song
“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” isn’t the only Encanto song that got its Hamilton remix. Initially created by Sutherland, Beatriz posted a TikTok of herself lipsyncing to “The Family Madrigal.” Although it featured Mirabel’s fast-paced lyrics, the instrumental in the background was “Guns and Ships” from Miranda’s Broadway musical.
“Mirabel de Lafayette,” Beatriz captioned the TikTok clip. The post earned over a million likes from Disney and theater fans.
Miranda has yet to comment on these mashups, although the composer often shares his love for the music of Encanto on social media. The Hamilton and Encanto soundtracks are available on most major music platforms.
