Brave in 3D


If you had a chance to change your fate, would you? 
Disney Pixar’s latest animation Brave, yet another entertaining story set in an interesting world. The very same folks behind Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Up prove they still have the right formula in making their 13th animation film a success in its own rights. 

Set in rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland, Princess Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergu who does not want to conform to the norms expected of a princess as her elegant and graceful mother Queen Elinor believes every princess should be. Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom and her family. Led by the magical wisp, she is granted a wish by a witch to change her fate. However, her fate is changed in a way that Princess Merida didn't quite expect. Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse.
I wish my archery skill are half as good as Merida:P
This is the first time that Pixar has casted a female lead. The visuals are stunning and to a large extent very realistic compared to previous Pixar films. A Disney recipe of princesses, kings, queens, witches, evil spells and prankish characters make up a good watch. Some may argue that the storyline is weak and safe or perhaps a little rushed in the ending. However, adding all elements together and having watched it in 3D (recommended to do so), I will gladly give this 8/10. And I will gladly watch it again to savour the Scottish accents and mystical music.
Catch Brave in cinemas near you. Opens in 3D on 21st June 2012 and all cinemas on 28th June 2012. I would urge that you watch this in 3D to truly appreciate the animation and enchanting graphics. Here's a couple of trailers to tease you while waiting.
 Some animation stills from the movie:
 Conforming to norms is boring:D
Merida's 3 very adorable and mischievous triplet brothers Hammish, Harris and Hubert 
who provide quite a good laugh throughout the movie.

 Bear or mum?
 The family of curly "eccentric" red heads of the kingdom...except mum Queen Elinor

I do have a feeling that this movie will appeal very well to teens especially teenage girls. Watch the trailers and let me know if you think so too.
