Merida may just be the first “lesbian” lead character in a Disney/Pixar cartoon and it was reason enough for me to love this movie.

Its story of a young girl trying to break free from the norm was pure fun and the animation was just gorgeous. I loved the three little brothers and I hope they get their own movie.

Emma Thompson was regal as usual voicing the Queen straight out of Battle Hymn of the Scottish Mom.

Rating: ★★★★☆
