Merida, the impetuous, but courageous, daughter of Scottish King Fergus and Queen Elinor, is a skilled archer who wants to carve out her own path in life. Her defiance of an age-old tradition angers the Highland lords and leads to chaos in the kingdom. Merida seeks help from an eccentric witch, who grants her an ill-fated wish. Now, Merida must discover the true meaning of courage and undo a beastly curse before it’s too late!
Released in 2012, Brave garnered great box-office and critical success, winning the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film and a Golden Globe.
Pixar’s sole foray into medieval fantasy is a rambunctious, vivacious affair that celebrates the power of nonconformity while pecking away at the nagging scab of childhood rebellion. Brave reminds us that young women are not entirely reliant on romance and the willing arms of a charming suitor with this lively, Oscar-winning tale of Caledonian pluck.
