Set in the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland, Disney Pixar's Brave follows the heroic journey of Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to change her fate, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane), unleashing chaos in the kingdom. When she turns to an eccentric Witch (voice of Julie Walters), she is granted an ill-fated wish and the ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her resources including her mischievous triplet brothers to undo a beastly curse and discover the meaning of true bravery.
Les studios Pixar Animation, créateurs d’«Histoire de jouets 3», vous entraînent dans une aventure surprenante au cœur d’une contrée des temps anciens chargée de mystères et de traditions. Rempli d’émotions, de personnages inoubliables et de cet humour caractéristique de Pixar, «Rebelle» est « un divertissement palpitant à l’animation splendide », s’exclame Peter Travers de 'Rolling Stone'. Un périple héroïque vous attend en compagnie de Merida, archère émérite et fille têtue du roi Fergus et de la reine Elinor. Déterminée à tracer elle-même son destin, Merida défie une coutume immémoriale sacrée aux yeux des seigneurs indisciplinés et querelleurs du pays. Ses actions plongent par inadvertance le royaume dans le chaos, forçant Merida à rallier toutes ses aptitudes et les ressources à sa disposition – dont ses frères triplets rusés et espiègles – pour contrer une terrible malédiction avant qu’il ne soit trop tard et ainsi découvrir le sens de la véritable bravoure.
Is fate really predetermined, or can people change their destiny? Scottish princess Merida (Kelly Macdonald) certainly believes that a teenager should have control over her own life. She has little patience with the conservative ideas her mother (Emma Thompson) holds about proper etiquette for girls, and even less tolerance for her kingdom's traditions regarding the marriage of a princess. An impulsive young woman with impressive archery skills and a no-nonsense attitude, Merida throws her realm into chaos when she disregards the customary procedure for finding a suitor and then disappears into the forest in defiance of her mother's unbending ways. In the forest, will-o'-the-wisps appear and, since Scottish legend suggests that these unearthly spirits might lead one to his or her destiny, Merida follows them to the house of a strange witch (Julie Walters) who grants her wish to change her mother. The witch's spell takes a most unexpected form, one that promises to test not only the bond between mother and daughter, but the bonds and bravery of the entire family and kingdom. What eventually becomes clear is that fate lies within, if only one is brave enough to see it. This collaborative Pixar-Disney film features stunning animation, an engaging story, plenty of laughs, effective music, and a one-of-a-kind princess. At times, the film feels almost Ghibli-esque, especially with its floating wisps, frightening creatures, and the stark conflict between the mystical and traditional. Brave is frightening (probably too frightening for those under 10 years), fascinating, and quite compelling. --Tami HoriuchiSee all Product Description

Merida (wonderfully voiced by Kelly Macdonald, and a genuine Scotswoman playing the part) is also refreshingly "average" looking, as opposed to the anorexic Barbie dolls of Frozen, whose inexpressive, ceramic doll faces were "Botoxed" because--in the exact words of Lino DiSalvo, the head animator on Frozen: "to keep them pretty."
Story-wise, this film feels like an actual, well, film. Too many modern movies are a fast-moving jumble of scenes with no real, logical plot threads connecting them. Brave, on the other hand, unrolls itself like a graceful tapestry, bringing events to a recognizable climax. In this internet age where most movies are apparently constructed by and for the attention deficited, that's a rare achievement indeed.
Merida's relationship with her family (in particular, her mother) and her society, especially where traditions of culture are concerned is handled believably. She doesn't end up changing the world overnight, but she does assert herself in her one small corner of it. Hamish, Hubert, and Harris are adorably hilarious--particularly in the scene where Hamish is flawlessly mimicking his father's words and actions as he relates his story of how he battled Mordu for the umpteenth time!
I shouldn't have worried.
Brave is aimed at a younger audience than Pixar's best work like Ratatouille and Up. Although it does contain deeper themes, such as conflict between mother and daughter, and dealing with society's expectations, the story is easy to follow. There were quite a few small children present in the theater when I saw the movie and I could hear them laughing and curiously asking questions about the characters. It also worked for me, and I'm by no means a small child.
A few of the action scenes and some of the scenes set in the dark forest might worry very young children, but I don't think there's anything frightening enough to stop anyone seeing Brave.
Those who were complaining that Pixar hasn't featured a female protagonist finally have a reason to celebrate; Merida (Macdonald) is featured heavily throughout, and she's a princess, although not in the traditional Disney style. You will hear a couple of songs, and there is a witch in the story, but Brave is not simply rehashing the formula exhausted in Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. Instead, Merida is like a tougher version of Rapunzel from Tangled.
Brave is a coming-of-age tale set in ancient Scotland. The main clan-leaders all have sons, and Merida is expected to marry one of them.Read more ›
Brave continues Pixar's amazing run becoming the studios 13th movie in a row to open number one at the US Box Office, with a highly impressive $66.7 million opening weekend.
A young redheaded princess named Merida, with a fiery sense of independence, the princess rebels against her princess training. When the queen attempts to marry her off, Merida can barely bear it, takes matters into her own hands, and challenges her suitors in an archery competition, setting events in motion that will change everyone's life.
We have a mysterious woman in the forest who may or may not be a wi..., I mean a woodcarver, and a bad bear. We also have her mischievous brothers. All of them are a bit wild, and Merida is a bit of a tomboy.
The distinctive voice of Billy Connolly voices the overly muscled King, with Emma Thompson playing the svelte queen, other well known actors such as Robbie Coltrane (Cracker) and Craig Ferguson voice the other parts, Julie Walters voices the witch and newcomer Kelly MacDonald does an excellent job voicing Merida.
Setting the tale in Scotland I think adds to it and offers unique opportunities for humor, and developing Merida as a personality who is independent makes her somewhat admirable, rather than the standard depiction of a beautiful princess, which lets face it, is somewhat cliche at this point.Read more ›
