If you’re like us and hum the songs “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” and “Surface Pressure” all day long, consider yourself an Encanto superfan. And as a superfan, you’ll be excited to learn that there’s a new, never-before-seen Encanto clip that was just released by one of the animated film’s co-directors, Jared Bush.

According to Bush, Encanto almost wrapped up with this funny post-credit ending. Filmmakers, however, decided to cut the scene in favor of focusing on the Madrigal family. “We considered an after-credit joke to end the movie, but ultimately felt going out on the emotion and joy of the family coming back together was the way to go,” Bush tweeted along with the scene.

Although filmmakers decided to cut the humorous ending, Disney animator Darrin Butters chose to animate the scene as it was written. It’s only a five-second snippet, but we’re glad he did. In it, the Madrigal family’s Casita gets the last laugh when it douses Chispi, the fluffy capybara character, with water from its gutter.

The poor little Chispi is just minding its own business eating grass and fixing to relieve itself outside when the Casita decides to detach part of its gutter and drop a couple of gallons of water on the capybara’s head. Chispi, of course, is shocked when the water splashes and runs off. We’d like to think Chispi found greener pastures, but you can’t get much lusher and more colorful than the natural environment around the Madrigal’s home. Some fans even want to see Chispi spinoff into its own franchise.

Encanto’s soundtrack is now the longest-running soundtrack to hold the No. 1 position in the 2020s on the Billboard 200 chart. The film is available to stream on Disney+.
