This week my 6 year old and I had the pleasure of attending a private screening for the new Disney-Pixar movie:
We knew that the movie follows the heroic journey of Merida, a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (voiced by Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voiced by Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin, surly Lord Macintosh and cantankerous Lord Dingwall. Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric Witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuring peril forces Merida to harness all of her skills and resources -including her clever and mischievous triplet brothers- to undo a beastly curse before it is too late, discovering the meaning of true bravery.
This movie is perfect for the whole family, there is something for everyone.
Adventure girl: "This movie is very funny, I liked all the jokes and I liked Merida riding her horse. I think that the movie was like funny, but the only thing that I did not like was when Mordu? would come into the movie... but Merida was always brave.... I want to be just like Merida!"
...And there you have it! Both Adventure Girl and I loved the movie and will definitely see it again.
Adventure Mom tip: Make sure you arrive early for the movie so you will get to enjoy "La Luna" a short film that leaves a great big smile on your face and we enjoyed very much!
Disclosure: I was invited to a private screening of Brave which facilitated the review, however all opinions and comments are 100% my own.
