Okay, so I have come across a lot of criticism against Merida that she is childish, rude, reckless, selfish and what not. But since she's my 2nd favorite princess, i'd like to put up a case in her favor for people to consider and see her in better light. I have tried to dissect the movie scenes, probed into possible perspective on various minor details that may have been overlooked.


Why she isn't sophisticated as others:
She no doubt loves both her mother and father, but Merida takes off a part of feisty, loud and unapologetically honest side from her father. She loves to fight with him, laughing wild and free, learning to use weapons like boys. Though Elinor never approves of princess making use of weapons, her father always encouraged Merida and also calmly suggested that she should let Merida be. His jolly and easy nature is reflected in Merida as well, she’s wild and carefree and mostly doesn’t bother with lady-like mannerism, doesn’t mean she doesn’t have manners at all.

I know she had a very bad personality at the beginning being disobedient and disrespectful to her mother but she turns nicer each day after her mother turned into a bear. She starts loving her more. So I'd say she's adventurous and turns nice and kind at the end. I love how she apologized for her bad choices and became good. She's fearless and playful. I also love how she saved her mother from her father and others. I find her intelligent because she knew what to do with her mother when she turned into a bear. She can make pretty bad choices and be childish but she knows how to change herself.

She made a bad choice but she just wanted to prove herself right and she did. I think she is a great role model who teaches us to solve our own problems. She has love for her family deep down.

4. Fergus
He's funny and I liked him a lot at the beginning. I don't like the way he was acting when the lords were introducing their sons. I also liked how he supports Merida. My favourite part is when he was laughing with Merida, while she was making fun of the lords' sons. Overall, he's a great character.


3. The triplets
They're very funny and mischievous. I like their reactions of taking the food from Maudi. I find them a bit intelligent. Overall, I love their reactions.


2. Elinor
I like that she tries to teach Merida lessons. She loves her daughter although she refused to listen to her. She knew what was best for Merida. After all, she is a mother. I agree with her but I just agree with Merida a bit more.


1. Merida
I knew she was wrong at the beginning but I still agreed with her. She made a bad choice but she just wanted to prove herself right. I love that she apologised for what she did and changed a lot at the end.

The turquoise dress
It's okay. I love the glitters around it. I don't like the colour (I like the white parts though). It doesn't fit Merida much.


The dark green dress
I think it fits Merida a lot. It's very pretty and comfortable for Merida's skills. It looks gorgeous especially in the sunlight.


Her brown dress
This is the one she wore when she was young. It's very pretty and it fits her. She looks really cute when she is wearing it.

6. Learn me right
It has a great meaning and message. The music is also nice, I don't enjoy the singing voice much.


5. Song of Mor'du
I like it but I feel that it's a mess. I love the lyrics but I don't like the way the men shouts.


4. Touch the sky
I love the music and the scene. The singing voice was also amazing. It is meaningful and I can relate to it.


3. Noble maiden fair (reprise)
It's the same as Noble maiden fair, only the scene is different. I think Noble maiden fair's scene is a bit better. But I love the scene for Noble maiden fair (reprise) too.


2. Into the open air
It is very meaningful and I love the scene. I like that it shows mother-daughter relationship. The music is great and the song is very sweet.

*Sigh*I lost all my progress from THEDisneyFreak, so I'm just going to re-post this article
Here is the problem with most people on Merida: she's selfish and wanted to change her mom. I can agree with that yes, but she changed and genuinely apologized in the end. Now I'm not going to bring up Ariel, they are very different but comparing them makes me look desperate. You're free to disagree, we all have opinions.
Though yes. I'm aware an article like this has just been written but the author is fine with it, I've been writing this for the past two days.

I used to hate the idea of Brave and Merida herself. I thought there was no possible way she would become my favorite or beat Rapunzel, but apparently she did. At first I thought she was a horrible character, 'Why can't she just listen to her mom and deal with it.' But just imagine yourself in her place....having every single day scheduled, having to become what you don't want to be. Every single minute you're being patrolled by your mother. People complain that she complains too much, what kind of sixteen year old wants to have her life planned out? No one, unless on the rare occasion.

Why I love Merida

As far as some of you know, I'm a HUGE Merida fan and supporter, and when she is insulted or even not shown any gradual love compared to the other Princesses I fight and stand up for her. Recently she's been gaining the love she deserved, I don't know where it started but as soon as that happened I felt enlightened with delight. I secretly {not a secret anymore} feel that I had something to do with the love she's been gaining, but of corse, that's an over exaggeration but I'll just pretend it happened like that. When Merida is called ugly or plain my face turns red but an opinion is an opinion, I'll try to be mature {haha, that's never going to happen} and respect that. When she's said to have a bad personality I boil over and explain every single detail I can for her defense. Because honestly you can't really compare your life to Merida's. I'm pretty sure nobody here went through with what she had to.

For this is my second article, or fifth if you count those horrendously long comments, backing up Merida. Or in this case expressing my love for her character. Now, I'm guilty. I've been paying attention to the more 'popular'...

So the way I first watched this was actually through my little brother. He had seen it in the theaters and asked for it on dvd for Christmas. He did end up getting it for Christmas and so we all watched it. I instantly loved it and watched it about 3 more times. I especially like it because of the amazing soundtrack! My favorite songs in order are:

Into the Open Air
Touch the Sky
Noble Maiden Fair
Learn Me Right

It brought me to my favorite singer, Julie Fowlis,who sings Touch the Sky and Into the Open air in the movie.

I absolutely love Brave and saw it six times in theaters last year. From the first time I saw it, it was clear to me that the main point of it was the relationship between Merida and Elinor. After seeing it more times after that, I couldn't ignore the subtle hints and meanings I noticed in many of their scenes together. That's why I wrote an analytical that describes many of those scenes in terms of their relationship. If you noticed many of the same things I did in the film, then I'm sure that you would like to read my essay. Here is the link to it on FanFiction: link

Although not nearly as long as the first, I also wrote a second essay in how fate and destiny plays an important part in the film, too: link

Noble Maiden Fair (A Mhaighdean Bhan Uasal) is a lullaby sung by Queen Elinor and Young Princess Meerida during a memory of them both and when Merida is tearfully begging her mother back to human form.

Gaelic Lyrics:
A naoidhean bhig, cluinn mo ghuth
Mise ri d' thaobh, O mhaighdean bhan

Ar righinn oig, fas as faic

Do thir, dileas Fein

A ghrian a's a ghealaich, stuir sinn

Gu uair ar cliu 's ar gloire

Naoidhean bhig, ar righinn go

Mhaighdean uashaill bhan

English Translation:
Little baby, hear my voice
I'm beside you, O maiden fair

Our young Lady, grow and see

Your land, your own faithful land

Sun and moon, guide us

To the hour of our glory and honour

Little baby, our young Lady

Noble maiden fair

Song of Mor'du is a villain song from Brave about Mor'du sung by King Fergus and chorus to entertain the lords.

I've hunted for him high 'n' low; I've looked him in the eye.
I dream about the perfect way, tae make this devil die.
Come taste ma blade ya manky bear for gobblin' up ma leg!
I'll hunt ye then I'll skin ye, hang your noggin on a peg!
Mor'du, Mor'du
Mor'du, Mor'du!
You're ancient as the highlands and as unforgivin' too.
Mor'du, Mor'du
Mor'du, Mor'du!
Now the time has come for all of us tae slaughter you!

He's bigger than a Cuillin, killin' armies with his paws.
Mor'du is never happy till the blood runs from his jaws.
He murders in the mountains and he fights with ev'ry clan.
His teeth and jowls have ripped the hearts fae many a highland man.

Mor'du, Mor'du
Mor'du, Mor'du!
He's stolen lads and lassies and wee 'bonnie babies too'!

Though I may speak some tongue of old or even spit out some holy word I have no strength with which to speak when you sit me down and see I’m weak

We will run and scream You will dance with me We’ll fulfill our dreams, and we’ll be free

We will run and scream You will dance with me We’ll fulfill our dreams, and we’ll be free We will be who we are And they’ll heal our scars Sadness will be far away

So I have done wrong to put me right my judgement burned in the black of night Then I give less than I take It is my fault, my own mistake

We will run and scream You will dance with me We’ll fulfill our dreams, and we’ll be free We will be who we are And they’ll heal our scars Sadness will be far away

Into the Open Air is a song in Brave performed by Julie Fowlis. Merida and Elinor as a bear are catching fish in a stream and are reconciling with each other.

This love it is a distant star, guiding us home wherever we are.
This love it is a burning sun, shining a light on the things that we've done.

I tried to speak to you every day, but each word we spoke the wind blew away.

Could these walls come crumbling down? I want to feel my feet on the ground, And leave behind this prison we share. Step into the open air.

How did we let it come to this? What we've just tasted we somehow still miss.

How will it feel when this day is done? And can we keep what we've only begun?

And now these walls come crumbling down, and I can feel my feet on the ground. Can we carry this love that we share?

Into the open air.

Into the open air (into the open air).

Into the open air.

Touch the Sky is the first song in Brave performed by Julie Fowlis when Merida leaves the castle and rides her horse, Angus, through the forest and shoots arrow.

When cold wind is a' calling, and the sky is clear and bright
Misty mountains sing and beckon, lead me out into the light
I will ride, I will fly, chase the wind and touch the sky
I will fly, chase the wind and touch the sky
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la la

(Instrumental)
Where dark woods hide secrets and mountains are fierce and bold
Deep waters hold reflections of times lost long ago
I will hear their every story, take hold of my own dream
Be as strong as the seas are stormy, and proud as an eagle's scream
I will ride, I will fly, chase the wind and touch the sky
I will fly, chase the wind and touch the sky
And touch the sky, chase the wind

All the characters and the main history are property of Disney Pixar and Brenda Chapman for writing the movie script, it's totally fan wrote of!

Monday, May 13rd
Dear parchment , I write it because I want to keep the things I think and that happen (like my fantastic adventures) to me now, in my adolescence, so that in the not too distant future, read it and surprised me. For, as my mother says: "When you grow up, if you're not married, you'll regret it and you won't think like that now." And as an adult and of legal age I wil be or married to who will win the archery tournament that will be celebrated when my age will be 16 (now I have 15, it lacks a lot until I turn 16, turned 15 two weeks ago), or I'll be free, riding my horse Angus across the Scottish territory and participating in archery tournaments, first here and then anywhere in the world. That's what I really want, if I face my parents and go with it ... But of course, they want me to be queen, because my brothers don't want do it. Right now, I'm alone in my room, writing this with pen and parchment, and having a break from my classes given by my private tutoress (She only teaches me for being the...

Brave: Merida's Fate.
Chapter 1 Episode 2: The Drought

    A week has passed since she fixed her bow, and the kingdom is experiencing a drought like never before. The only place that has any water is the lake behind the castle, and yet it lost five feet of water. Each day around a dozen people come to the castle with heat stroke, and few die. And now it is tearing the kingdom apart.

    A meeting was held in the great hall to discuss the issue, and shortly after a fight broke out amongst people. "Everyone shut it!" Queen Elinor roared. "Quite bursting into violent idiots when you disagree!" Everyone grew silent, as she pulled her husband out of the crowd of people. "So why were you fighting this time?" Queen Elinor shouted. The crowd stayed silent, and King Fergus sneaked back to his seat. "Well if your too scared to tell me, then let's move on with the meeting!" Queen Elinor demanded. As she sat down, Fergus cleared his throat and stood up. "All I see we can do for now is to send patrols out to each town and bring water. If it continues to worsen, we can then get in contact with the three kingdoms."...

I have read that young princess Merida will be included in the princess line and upon hearing the news, to say the least, I was thrilled.
Merida is obviously an admirable chatacter-independent, free willed, but also loving and intellegent. But what marks her among the place of the best princesses iis her faults and vulnerability. She says and does things she regrets, she makes mistakes, but deals with the consequences and fixes them. The only other princesses who do likewise are Pochahonts, Mulan, and Tiana. Rapunzel is merely a victim of what she does not know. Belle and Ariel make mistakes and deal with the consequences, but they are too great a size for them to completely solve them. The rest are typical damsels in distress. This is especially good because little girls idolize princesses. They (the princesses) are teenagers and adults and all little girls want to wear dresses, fall in love, and have adventures because that is supposedly what teenagers and adults do. It is wonderful to have more characters to remind them that they don't have to be perfect and its okay to make mistakes as long as they try to solve their problems.

Brave: Merida's Fate.
Chapter 1 Episode 1: Pilot

    Life for Merida has been set back to normal after the three clans left. No more worrying about marriage, no new responsibilities, and no more of that dreaded bear, Mor'du. The only thing that has changed is her mother now truly understands her. Now she has a free life again, and the only person who runs it is her.

    Although, for now she has been grounded and ordered to clean up whatever her mother, Queen Elinor broke when she was turned into a bear. The damage stretched halfway around the castle, and includes the gate that the overflow water from the well exited out of. Since she can't lift it and fit it back on, she has been ordered to clean it until it shined, which took an entire afternoon. Even though this work is very physically demanding, she knew what she did was wrong and figured it was the least she could do. All the heavy furniture knocked over, was also put back in place by the guards since Merida can't lift it either. Still though, there was enough broken trinkets that fell off the furniture she was able to sweep up.

Ok, I just watched Brave, and I want to write a review. And please don't say I got stuff wrong, because the power went out in the middle of the movie! We got to watch the rest though. First off, it was really funny. Seriously, I was ROTFL! But, it was really scary! I like that kind of movie! Some of the Scotish language (kerfuffles, etc.) was hard to understand. I think the movie would be too violent for young kids. But it told a good story. You better be good at making predictions, though, because this movie is better when you guess.

I'm going to come and say straight up I love Merida. She's earned a spot in my top three heroine's of all time, and her movie is one of my favourite Pixar films to date. So, moving on..

Appearance -
A lot of people think Merida is ugly, but I disagree. Sure, she's different from what we're used to seeing, but different doesn't mean ugly. Her hair is beautiful, it's a true red-head's red. It's a gorgeous copper hue that is full of life and volume. It really represents her character well. Her eyes are beautiful, such a lovely colour and shape in my opinion. I love her smile, it's full of passion and joy to me. Her body is realistic, thin but not to the point where she looks like she'll snap in half. She looks like a girl who does a lot of physical activity, which she does (archery, horse back riding, and climbing mountains to name a few).
One thing I want to address before moving on is that Merida is a clone of Ariel. No, she isn't. The only thing they have in common is they're red heads. Well, like I said Merida's hair is copper and curly. Ariel's is fire engine red, something impossible in real life without dying your hair. It works because she's a...

Hello!
Have you wondered what this movie was about? Do you like to know the meaning before you see it? So you dont.....you know, waste your money?

Well! I am going to tell you the meaning!


When princess Marida had celebrated her third birthday and she was just playing with her mother. (the Queen)
When she was playing with her mother her father (the king) came and gifted her with a bow and arrow. He had taught her how to shoot arrows very excellent.
Her mother was angry that the king had basically ruined Marida's future of being a princess.
After Marida's FIRST bow and arrow lesson, one of her arrows had gotten lost into the woods. Marida's father asked for her to go out and get it, so when she returned to her father with the arrow a giant bear had followed her!
Her father had pushed her back and told the Queen to take Marida on her horse and leave off to the kingdom. Marida was worried about her father shooting arrows at such a giant bear. But she felt that since he was with his friends shooting the arrows along with him he would be more than safe. But daddy had lost his leg to that bear!

When I first saw the preview/trailer for this movie, it made me think of the Hunger Games, as where both Katniss and Meridia are good at shooting arrows. But thats really the only thing in common between them, other than the fact that they really don't want to get married to anyone.
Also, when I noticed Meridias red hair I though about Ariel. I was wondering if they were trying to make a new princess to show off their red hair.
But the thing about their hair are the styles. As seen in the movie, Ariel doesn't have curly hair. It seems as she has straight hair, with wavy bangs.
On the other hand, Meridia has curly, bouncy hair that isn't straight at all. Also, she does not have bangs.
Another thing was the background. You may think it is a new background, but look closely. If you have seen the Hunger Games, you can see that the inviroment looks likes the inviroment in The Hunge rGames on a rainy or cloudy day. I wasn't sure about this, but I figured they needed to make it seem more real.

Can't Believe That I am the first one To write an article in this pot...

The villain's role is one of the prime role in the movies of Diseny and Pixar.THere are some villains which turns a prince into a frog(Dr.Facilier),Some keeps a princess for a long time(Gothel),Some wants to break toys and make new ones from them(Sid) while some takes someones sweet voice(ursula).But what about BRAVE?How will be the Villain?Who Will be the Villain?What will be the appearance of the villain?Is it will be a Animal?A DRaGON?A DEMON?A Witch?A human?A non-Living thing????What will be the sex of that villain"Male" or FEMALE"????????????



SORRY,I WAS QUITE EXCITED.



Well,by seeing the Trailers I think that Merida's Own Mother is Villain or the Bear which appears at somewhat end of the trailer.Here are my views about both of them:

BEAR :
I hope that the bear would be the prince(like in Beauty and the Beast).Maybe he may be cursed by a witch or a VOOOOOOOOOOOOdooo Fellow that he has become a bear?!?!?!Maybe when Merida will shot it,it will turn into a prince or like this???Or he may be a VILLAIN onlY who...
