Disney Pixar Brave Review
Last weekend, we descended on to Leicester Square for the press screening of the all new, Disney Pixar movie "Brave" which we had all been looking forward to for weeks.
We're huge disney fans in this house, none more so than our very own Pixie who is obsessed with all things "princessey". Whilst I am all for expressing yourself, and don't believe in steering children to my preferences, I have always been uncomfortable with the fact that your "typical" disney princess has an evil/dead/step mother and all she hankers for in life is a nice Prince to sweep her of her feet, get married and live happily ever after. My feminist side has always wanted a princess to come along and do things her way and I am thrilled (finally!) to declare that our heroine Merida in Brave does just that.
Brave is set in the highlands of Scotland, where the gorgeously, feisty, Merida with the most AMAZING red, flamed ringlets, goes against her parents wish to marry by defying an age old tradition. She unleashes chaos and mayhem as her ill fated wish to change her mother (this story does for the mother/daughter relationship what finding Nemo did for the father/son one) is granted. It is then a race against time as Merida has to undo the spell and show her braveness against adversity.
Here's the official trailer:
We all absolutely LOVED this film, even HAW being Scottish spoke nothing of Clans and Kinsman all the way home and we can't wait to see this again once it goes on general release on the 13th August 2012.
Luckily, if you live in Scotland, you get to see this before us South of the Border, as release in Scotland is the 4th August 2012.
Peace and Love
