‘Brave’ (PG)

Written By Kate Maitland-Gleed

Rated: 5 StarsImage

Yet again, Disney Pixar have created another great film for children and adults. But there is one difference.. This one will knock your socks off! With it’s fantastic cast and wonderful storyline, ‘Brave’ will leave you feeling happy and slightly teary.

Being a princess isn’t all that is’t made out to be.Yes you look beautiful. Yes you get swooned over by every handsome prince in the kingdom. But to be a princess, you have to do what you’re told… Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) is the princess in our story and she is not one for following the rules! Love, marriage and leadership all awaits her. But she wants freedom, Imageand to be able to fire arrows in the woods as the wind flows through her hair! There is one thing that stands in her way between her prefered fate, and her real fate… Her mother, the Queen, Elinor (voiced by Emma Thompson).Wanting her only daughter and first born child to someday become Queen herself, Elinor teaches Merida everything a princess should know. Skills like sewing, public speaking and how to look proper. But in her own time, Merida teaches herself how to ride a horse and use weapons… Especially a bow and arrow…

Her father, the King, Fergus (voiced by Billy Connolly) helps his daughter to persue her dream, and on her birthday, he buys her her very own bow. Not boding well with Elinor, the Queen works even harder to prepare her daughter for marriage. But after proving to her parents that she does not wImageant to get married, a big argument breaks out between the princess and her mother. Will this push Merida over the edge? Will the bond between her and her mother ever be mended? Will fate be changed? You will have to watch the film to find out…!

Wow! This film is jam packed with famous voices including; Julie Walters, Robbie Coltrane and Craig Ferguson. ‘Brave’ had me in tears. Both of laughter and sadness. In the words of my friend; ‘I want to see this film again!’. And I think you will too..!
