An impetuous princess discovers that her reckless choice has put both her family and her father's kingdom in peril in this animated adventure from Pixar films. As a toddler, Merida (voice of Kelly MacDonald) saw her father, King Fergus (Billy Connolly), do battle with one of the fiercest animals in the kingdom -- a horribly scarred hulk of a bear named Mordu. Though Fergus lost his leg defending his family, Merida and her mother, Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson), managed to escape the beast before it vanished back into the forest. Years later, Merida has grown up to become not just a skilled archer, but also a beautiful princess who inspires a competition among the eligible bachelors in the land. But Merida has little interest in getting married, and the harder her mother pushes the issue, the more fiercely she resists it. When the tournament for her hand gets under way and a deep divide opens between mother and daughter, Merida makes a wish that threatens the future of both her family and the entire kingdom. Now, with only a brief window of time to set things right, Merida must summon the courage to atone for her mistake and prevent a past tragedy from destroying any hope for a peaceful future. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
With being so busy, I honestly hadn't even paid much attention to what this new movie was about. I have never watched a Disney movie that I didn't like, so it was hard to wait until Evan got home to watch it. Brave didn't disappoint - the characters were funny and the message was great! I won't give it away, but the movie meant even more to me since I'm a mom. The kids really enjoyed all of the action and the characters kept them intrigued with the movie.
Want to know how brave you are? Take this fun quizz!
Here are some fun activities to get your family excited about the movie.
Brave was released on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D & DVD Combo Pack yesterday and would make a fantastic gift for the Holidays.
