Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse.
I've seen trailers for this movie every time I've visited the theater in the past few months, and every time, I lean over to The Hubby and say, "We're going to see that one." And he just smiles.
We're a bit biased, though. Yes, the story looks adventurous and moving and, possibly, a tearjerker, but the main thing The Hubby and I are looking forward to is a feature length film full of Scottish accents.
You think I am kidding. I am not. We are freaks for Scottish accents, and the last good movie we saw that fed our addiction was How to Train Your Dragon, so it's been a while. We are also huge fans of Disney*Pixar movies, and we usually only splurge on the theater for movies that allow us to bring The Boy along.
Personally (not speaking for The Hubby anymore) I'm also looking forward to the fantasy element they keep hinting at in these trailers. They never really say or show what it is, just hint at it. They get you intrigued by showing you the fun characters and not-so-common setting, then tease you by saying, "But wait! There's more! Aaaaand... you'll have to come see the movie to find out what it is."
That's smart marketing.
So who's with me on this one? Anyone else as excited as I am to see Brave? And if you've already seen it, what did you think (no spoilers, please)?
Have a great weekend!
