Brave

I was invited to the Disney Studios lot to preview the new Disney Pixar movie Brave. I have been looking forward to this movie since they first announced the production and now it's finally here!

The story follows the journey of the Scottish princess Merida, who is determined to carve her own path in life. The movie lived up to the beauty of the trailer. The film is gorgeous and so realistic that you tend to forget you're not watching 'real' humans!

This was Pixar's first film to feature a female protaganist and as a founder of a League of Extraordinary Ladies myself, I have to say that strong female characters are a draw for women audiences of any age.

That being said, my son was excited about the movie - and rightly so, this film was full of action! Riding, chasing, sword fighting and of course...a archery. This is truly the year of the crossbow. With Katniss Everdeen, The Avengers own Hawkeye and now Merida - fighting with skillful weapons is the new black. Let's just say THIS is currently the most popular toy in my house. Yikes.

Aside from Merida being the star, another central part of the story is the setting. Lush forests, waterfalls and dark woods - everything seemed touchable and mystical. The production team truly did their research and brought the beauty of Scotland to life, tree by tree.

The story was heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. It's about growing up, finding oneself and the ultimate mother-daughter bond that is so strong. I teared up several times - make sure you bring kleenex.

It was a fantastic, strong and thoughtful movie. Contrary to past movies where a woman is waiting for a man to change her life (my issue with most princess movies), Merida has become my new favorite Disney Princess because she makes her own story and does it her way. A true Disney classic.

Brave is set for release this Friday, June22.

*Disney invited me to a screening of the movie with no monetary compensation. All opinions and reviews are my own.
