I’m a massive fan of Disney. It’s hard to pick favourites so I won’t even begin (e.g. The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, The Emperor’s New Groove, Aladdin, The Jungle Book, The Sword in the Stone, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mulan, Tarzan, Chicken Little…) because I will end up naming them all anyway (Oops…). A friend of mine told me that they were releasing a new Disney Pixar film called ‘Brave’. We quickly went online and found the trailer.

I. Can’t. Wait.

Not only is she a princess but she kicks butt! Merida defies an age-old custom and destiny, unleashing chaos in the kingdom set in the mysterious highlands of Ireland. I’m a big supporter of strong female protagonists (so sick of Twilight garbage. *Lifts up shield to protect myself from the fans*) and this looks like it will be great. Apparently the director will be a female as well, meaning that this will be the first movie to be directed by a female for Pixar productions and Merida will be Pixar’s first female protagonist – some random trivia. (I wonder why it took Pixar so long to get some kick-ass females!)

Is anyone else excited by Brave? And don’t tell me I’m too old to get excited by Disney movies! It’s impossible to be too old for them. 😀 Are there some ‘children’ movies you can’t stop re-watching?
