The latest film from Disney Pixar, BRAVE, opens in theaters today. Our family was fortunate enough to be invited to an advanced screening last week at the AMC in Boston and I have been eager to share my thoughts about the film with my readers. Before I get into the film, though, I must tell you about the wonderfully delightful treat "La Luna", the Pixar short that preceded the movie.
Also in 3D, this short features three generations of a family whose job it is to tidy up the moon. Without a single word, this Pixar short shows how even the oldest and wisest can still learn from the younger generations. The amazing 3D effects make this little tale a magical one.
BRAVE is the tale of a Scottish princess named Merida (voice of Kelly MacDonald) who is a heroine like no other Disney Princess. This young girl not only changes her own fate, but changes the fate of her people, and does so without the help of a prince at her side. In fact, this film does not offer any romance for the Princess . . . just 100% adventure.
One major victory for Merida is her mother's realization that she could never survive outside of the castle, while her very capable daughter could do so easily. To me, that was the turning point that started the change in Merida's fate.
