Brave tells the story of Princess Merida and her quest to change her fate. Until now, Princesses have been the purview of Disney's traditional animation division. With Brave, Pixar breaks the royal seal and, as usual, who works excels.
end of the day, Princess and the Frog is a love story and, like it or not, a prince was a necessary prerequisite for a happy ending. Brave is an action movie, so Merida is allowed to take the modern princess to another level. Merida is as fiery as her hair and challenges both fate and tradition to become the first truly free spirited Princess.
disappointed that the themes in Brave not as "mature" as Wall-E, Up, or
Rattatouile. I'm not sure these people are correct since Brave takes on some
pretty lofty issues about the effects of tradition on society and the
ramifications of deciding whether to challenge that tradition.
about finding your place in the world. Like their other shorts, Pixar delivers a lot in a short amount of time and will clearly be a contender come Oscar time. I really do like that Disney (and Pixar) have continued the trend of having shorts, since that is how Walt started. But, I digress.
