Disney's Brave Review

I was lucky enough to get to pre-screen Disney's Brave tonight in 3D. Usually I'm not a fan of 3D movies but this was GREAT in 3D.

Here's the Synopsis:

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.

Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the 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). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.

Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and the signature Pixar humor enjoyed by audiences of all ages. The film takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

This movie is perfect to take your moms and daughters to. It really takes a look at how mothers and daughters comminiate and how it's important to not just hear, but to listen. It also show how we may not appreciate the way things are until there is a chance that it can be taken away from you.

You'll laugh, you see naked bums, you'll experience wonder, and fear, you may even shed a tear.

The Celtic setting was inspired. The use of actual Scottish actors instead of Hollywood voice actors impersonating Scots went a long way. The tone of the dramatic sequences ran quite dark for a Pixar film, harkening back to the days of animation before the oversensitive helicopter parent era.

This movie is a winner and opens in theaters June 22nd. Go experience Brave.
