wishes to be more of a free spirit, able to ride her horse, eat and wear what
she wants and most importantly practise her archery skills. A trip to a Witch
adds a further twist to the mother daughter relationship and puts both their lives
at risk. Merida
Despite being a huge Pixar fan I went into Brave with a small sense of dread. I expected, and as it turned out I was right, that this would be Pixar’s most Disney-like feature to date and that’s something that disappoints me. We already have Disney to bring us fairytales of Princesses and suitors but there are very few studios who are brave enough or mad enough to come up with the likes of Toy Story, Wall-E or Up. For me there was little to distinguish Brave from a modern Disney film along the same lines as Tangled. Despite this, Brave is still a fun film with a lot to like.
