Disney Pixar Brave Review and Giveaway

UPDATE
Using random.org, the winner of the Brave Five-Disc Ultimate Collector's Edition is Leslie.  I will be emailing you soon to get your address to send to get your prize to you asap!  Thank you all for entering.  Stop back next week when I will have another review and giveaway for you.

    The very first Disney princess movie I remember seeing was Sleeping Beauty.  I was around five years old and I was hooked.  I loved Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip.  I loved the fairies, especially Meriweather.  I was introduced to Cinderella and Snow White and loved them as well.  They were all princesses who needed to be rescued. 

    It wasn't until 1989 and I had daughters of my own that Disney princesses began to take on a new attitude.  I remember sitting in the theatre with my three daughters and a friend and her daughter and being very pleasantly surprised at Ariel in The Little Mermaid.  She had a mind of her own and she wasn't content to do what everyone thought she should.  Close on her heels came Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Jasmine in Aladdin.  They too had plans for themselves that didn't include what other people planned for them.  I loved that they had a mind of there own.  They were perfect role models for my girls
    Now, it's 2012 and enter Merida.  She's the newest princess to the Disney collection in the movie, Brave.  Merida is a plucky little thing who not only has a mind of her own, but she doesn't need a prince to complete her.  Merida is a head strong princess who has no patience for her mother's way of finding her a suitor.  Defying her mother, she disappears into the forest and spys will-o'-the-wisps.  According to Scottish tradition,  these unearthly spirits might lead one to his or her destiny.  They lead Merida to a witch who is asked by Merida to change her mother.  What ensues is a chaotic adventure with twists and turns at every junction.

    I watched Brave with my 25 year old daughter and my four year old and six year old granddaughters.  Brave was a hit all the way across the board.  My daughter thought it was ground breaking in some of the content that has never been in a Disney movie before.  The grand kids loved it.  They both had favorite parts.   One of them was one of the parts my daughter thought was ground breaking.  I don't want to reveal too much of the story for those of you who haven't seen it yet.

    I have no doubt that Brave is a movie that we will watch over and over.  It was a beautiful, touching and exciting story with amazing scenery.  The Scottish highlands never looked so inviting.  As with many Disney movies, the end will tug at your heartstrings.  I have come to expect that from Disney and love it.

    The good news is that I have a copy of the Brave Five-Disc Ultimate Collector's Edition  (Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD + Digital Copy) to give away to one of my readers.  All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment telling me who your favorite Disney princess is and why.  The giveaway will run through Friday, November 9.   The winner will be chosen using random.org.   Be sure to leave me your email in the comment, so I can get in touch with you if you win.   Also, if you comment under anonymous, please leave me your name.

    Best of luck to everyone.  Now, go ahead and comment away!!  

      I received a copy of this film to review.   All opinions are my own.

  1. We'd love to see it! We never did get the chance to see it in the theatre when it came out! I think my favorite princess is probably Belle from Beauty & The Beast, but right now Rapunzel from Tangled is getting a LOT of play! So it would be nice to have a new movie in the rotation!! :)

  4. Nancy, I took BJ and Mia to see it in the theater and loved it! It was groundbreaking in many ways, and like you, I was pleased to see that Merida had a mind of her own!

    Up until now, my favorite princess has always been Belle, and Mia's favorite isn't a princess, but she loves Tinkerbell!

  13. I like Mu Lan (even though she's not technically a princess) because of her strong and independent character. I love that Merida is the same kind of princess, and can't wait to see the movie.

  18. Belle is my absolute favorite. I love to read and I think she is the smartest, least judgmental, most independent of all of the princesses!

  23. I love Mary Poppins. I know that she is not a princess, but I grew up with that as my favorite Disney movie.

  24. I am going to say that Tianna is my favorite princess. She knows the value of working hard and sacrificing for her dreams and to reach her goals.

  25. I love Belle! She is smart, and loyal to her family. She also sees the good in people beyond looks. I would love to win this for my little girl :)
