Disney Pixar's BRAVE Hits Theaters TODAY!



My son and I had the pleasure of attending a screening for Disney Pixar's new movie BRAVE last week and I've been bursting to share this review with you ever since.

The movie's title of BRAVE goes along with many themes in the film. The storyline shows bravery against beasts, bravery to stand up for yourself, bravery to do what's right, bravery to mend a relationship, bravery to adventure, and more.

Here's a brief synopsis of the film taken from the press release.

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late. Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and the signature Pixar humor enjoyed by audiences of all ages. The film takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters. (DISNEY/PIXAR) This film is rated PG.
From beginning to end, I loved this movie. I loved the free spirit of Merida and the adventure she craves. I loved the humor in the movie and the strong message of "family" that brought tears to my eyes. Merida, in my eyes, is the ultimate un-princess and is a wonderful addition to the other Disney Princesses we know and love. She is full of spirit, adventure, spunk, and a great big heart. {And if I can grow my hair out and get some highlights, I know who I'm going to be for Halloween this year. LOL}

This movie is a must see for the whole family. It's the best Pixar movie yet.

Beware, there are some angry bears in this film but Alex {who is 5 years old} wasn't bothered by them at all. However, if you have a little one who may be sensitive to this, the scenes don't last too long.

Let's ask Alex what he thought of the movie.


And now to give you a glimpse at what you can expect from the film. Here are some clips!
P.S. Watching these makes me want to go see it all over again.
