Disney’s Brave And 13 Crazy Facts That Will Blow Your Mind

One of the most talked-about animated films in 2012 is Brave – a comedy/adventure movie produced by two of the world’s largest media and entertainment companies: Disney and Pixar. The movie portrays Princess Merida – a strong, brave girl with determination to pursue her own path. On that journey, she accidentally cast a curse on her mother and had to go through many events to realize the sacredness of motherhood.

Making a strong impression with Merida’s red curly hair and her bow, Brave marks a turning point in Pixar’s style: less humorous, instead, darker and more mature. With the frames of the wonderful Scottish highlands and touching scenes about motherhood, Brave has captured the hearts of many audiences across all ages.
