Extended Behind-The-Scenes Featurette For Pixar’s ‘Brave’

Written by Alexander Tucker   // 06/03/2012

Merida the New Disney Princess from movie BraveMerida is Disney’s newest princess in the movie ‘Brave.’ Merida does not have a Prince Charming or stunning glass shoes, like some of the other Disney Princesses. What Merida has is meant for eternity. That’s bravery.


Brave‘ focuses on a young Scottish, impulsive girl. As a skilled archer with an adventurous path, her destiny is of her own choosing. In ‘Brave,’ Merida is focused on saving her kingdom and learning the true meaning of bravery.


I think Merida is a new coming of age heroin we desperately needed. Disney princesses have always carried similar stories of breaking away from family, finding love, and saving the day. To argue that this theme has been done to death is irrelevant. Disney’s Mulan resembles the strength and bravery a daughter endures while going to war. While Beauty and the Beast targets the ugliness of a curse and Belle’s true love breaking it. Young children and men/women alike need these movies to learn from. As a Disney fanatic I’ve learned more about life watching Pocahontas than I have from my own mother. Bravery channels what young women need in our society now. Fighting for what we believe in with no regrets.


In America we can’t walk around with an archer to save our kingdom. Nor can we cause spells on our family to then later break the curse. What we have is true, it’s real. We have our strong voice to change our destiny. All it takes is a positive film to inspire. The tale of the mystical Scottish Highlands can bring us a new defiance to uplift our struggling world to finally be, Brave.


The voice-cast of ‘Brave’ includes Kelly Macdonald as Princess Merida. Craig Ferguson plays Lord Macintosh and talented Emma Thompson as Queen Elinor. Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, who also took part on writing the screenplay. Chapman was set to be Pixar’s first female director until replaced. Produced by, Katherine Sarafian. Change your fate with Brave on June 22nd, 2012.
