Brave Introduces Disney's First Self Rescuing Princess

Disney's much anticipated film Brave, has arrived in theaters and it is undeniably unlike any other Disney Princess film that they have produced to date. The breathtaking animation takes you on a journey through the rolling hills of Scotland and the lively storyline of Disney's first self rescuing princess, Merida. With her gorgeous fiery red locks and a tenacious personality, this is one princess that certainly breaks the proverbial mold.

Merida rebuffs tradition from early on and when the time comes, she refuses to choose a suitor. The headstrong princess decides instead to follow the magical wisps that are believed to lead you to your fate. She soon learns though that attempting to guide or change fate can ultimately end in ways that she may not be prepared to handle; buoying the timeless saying "be careful what you wish for".

Disney has woven a beautiful and valuable lesson into this film; the animation is simply stunning. Brave is a definite must-see family film (recommended for ages 7+).

Film Synopsis
Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to
carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late
