Disney has hit the jackpot with yet another princess movie. Brave is wonderful, there’s action, love, mystery and its perfect how the end of the movie left loose ends which gives children and families.
The main people in this story are Merida the princess, her brothers the triplets Harris, Hubert and Hamish, Merida’s mother the queen Eleanor and her husband King Fergus.
It’s just completely awesome seeing Merida be this tom-boy character. I wish Brave was around the time of Pocahontas. These two girls have a lot in common. They seek adventure they seek danger they are more rugged and wild. This movie is great for those girls who love the outdoors, playing in the bushes, camping and starting their own trouble. And what really hit home for me was the relationship that the mother and daughter had. Basically every girl growing up goes through these phases; your mother becomes your worst enemy and you don’t understand why she is forcing all these rules and morals onto you. Then one day you get this moment of clarity and you grow up, finally, and realize it was all because they loved you and wanted the best for you this whole time.
Of course Merida goes a little too far during her phase of resentment and hatred towards her mother and gets a sketchy witch involved in order to get her mom off of her case. Along with the magical feel of this witch there are these little Will O’ the wisps that appear in times of need or trouble. They have been myths and only heard about in stories for thousands of years, but they play a major role in directing the destiny of this royal family.
Also I enjoyed how this Disney movie isn’t about finding true love or falling in love with a man, it’s about family it’s about the love you experience within your family WHICH IS INCREDIBLE! I applaud Disney, good job! It’s a very nice spin for the youth of today’s times. We need more emphasis on the importance of keeping families together rather than finding true love, cause let’s be honest girls in elementary don’t need to know about that yet!
