The young girl with glasses wrote a letter to Disney three years ago. Well talking about the letter, she asked them to create a character like her. The young kid wanted to have a Disney character in a film who wears glasses. “I wrote a letter to the Disney chief executive Robert Iger. Because I saw that there were no Disney princesses with glasses. The characters with glasses were called geeks and nerds. I don’t think that is fair,” she said while speaking to Optometry Today.
“I want other little girls around the world to have a role model with glasses. If a person with glasses can look up to, they will know that people with glasses are beautiful. It would make children less worried about what other people think like I was,” she further stated. The little girl’s letter has become one of the hottest topics nowadays.

The director of Encanto also spoke about her and her letter on his official Twitter account. “3 years ago, Lowri wrote to Disney asking for a heroine w/ glasses. I couldn’t say that her wish was already coming true! BUT watch the clip for the answer to a big question: Why doesn’t Julieta “fix” Mirabel or Agustín’s eyesight. It’s who they are & she wouldn’t want to change it,” said Bush. There are a few other reasons why Lowri loves Mirabel from the film.
