Merida - the Brave princess. by vanipy05 Merida - the Brave princess. by vanipy05
See what i did there?
Merida, the brave princess? cuz Merida is a princess from the movie called Brave.
it's a pun. it's punny.

Anyway, yeah. You guys heard right? I've heard about this last year. Back when i think the title change had just happened. It was called "The bear and the bow". I thought there was gonna be a bear... but nope.

so yep. I saw the new still of Merida. and a few concept arts, and i think she looks cool. Go pixar!

comments are very much appreciated!

[EDIT] saw the teaser. OH HAI THERE'S ACTUALLY A BEAR.

I still think they should keep Disney Princesses in traditional animation, but this movie did peak my interest. I've been researching the concept fo the movie, and right now it reminds me of stories like The She-Bear with animal shapeshifting.

This is beautiful! The coloring came out superb. ;) I saw the trailer for the movie a few weeks ago and I was like 'EEEEEEE~ afkah;hfjldhal /spaz'. I seriously CANNOT wait for this movie. I've been anticipating it for years! :excited:

Awww, thanks for doing this, I cannot WAIT for this to come out! :excited: The only thing is that I wish it was traditional 2D animation like Princess And The Frog, but...hey. :shrug:

hm, well it's made by pixar. You can't expect pixar to do 2D animation since pixar is most popular because of their past 3D movies now do you? :3

Yeah, true, I agree, but I guess I was thinking about Disney in general, doing more 2D movies like in the Golden Age of the 1990's, with Aladdin, Beauty And The Beast, and Little Mermaid. But there's rumor they are not even doing fairy tales anymore. :shrug:

vanipy05 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2011  Student Filmographer
well, that rumor isn't true. I remember Disney announced it themselves on their facebook that they'll continue with the fairy tales that they are known for :la:

Oh wow, really? :excited: I hope you're right! The last I heard from Disney is that their last 2D movie would be The Snow Queen after The King Of Elves, and after that, no more fairy tales or 2D. Shame though, I like 2D, but....hey. :shrug:

It costs more to do a movie in hand-drawn animation than it is to do a movie in CGI. That is why Disney is only doing a hand-drawn movie every 2-3 years instead of every year like in the 90s.

Yeah, I figured that. Anything to save money, even though they're already a money-making cooperation. :roll: Ahh well. :shrug:

love this! i think pixar finally is making a comeback with a good movie. i feel its going to be more so along the lines of tim burton rather then disney's usual princesses i.e, rapunzel. even though i loved rapunzel, (win on disney's part) i still am drawn to more dark movies so i think this is going to be nice :D

right? like those cheesy 'heroin saves the day and sped the whole movie with female power but then ends up getting the guy anyways' movies are so over-rated lol i want her to go all out and be a nice rebelious warrior lady!

Definitely! Not to mention that the guy she ends up with is a total wimp!

With Mulan, it's different. Mulan only went out to war to save her father from going to the war himself; not because she was girl who thinks she's all that. Shang was also a strong character because he taught Mulan and soldiers how to be strong warriors.

aha i love mulan! that was a good disney movie. i mean i also like Pochahontas beause she was empowered and stood on her own then i remember her throwing herelf over her father when they were about to kill him so they stopped (havent seen it in a while, my video player is broken and i dont have it on dvd xD)but the details are really hazy... oh or in the black cauldron, Eilowny rescued the guy in the first place and i dont think they ended up dating so i liked tht movie :3
