    re: Merida from 'Brave' arrives at Disneyland in May! (Merged)

    When they announced Tangled, Disney stated that Repunzel would be the last new Princess,
    and that none were planned for the future. I feel too out of place to visit Pixie Hollow,
    But Repunzel is fun, and looks just like her. I am looking forward to Merida.

    Now we have 2 new princesses.

    Sofia the First.
    A young Princess without a villan, Movie, or TV show.
    (Marketing ploy for very young girls)



    Now Merida.
    Another storng independent Princess (Mulan?).

    PS: John Carter was a farce, and not worth while.
    But Brave lookes like another Tangled. (Moderate hit for Disney/Pixar)

    After seeing trailers, I really can't see any further coincidences other than having Scottish accents and big bearded men. The story is completely different. The setting is completely different.
    Yes, Cohete. I know that they are two separate cultures, but the feel is almost the same to me. A family's expectations of their young child, the child rebelling... It also looks more like a Dreamworks movie.

    NOOO.. this doesn't look like a Dreamworks movie. Pixar always has strong character designs. Dreamworks still doesn't quite have the ability to create great looking characters.

    Guessing the archery will be a big hit, especially since the release of the Hunger Games. My daughter has already asked my husband to teach her to use his bow and arrow.

    BRAVE Coming to Disneyland/ WDW

    Hey guys, I'm back! With stuff such as school and family matters, I have been unable to post on Micechat for a while. Anyways, here is my first reutrning post, and it involves the newest member to the Pixar family!

    Merida from ‘Brave’ is Coming to Disney Parks Disney Parks Blog

    IMO, I cannot wait for this new movie or this new character in the parks!

    EDIT: I have just realized that this post was already posted, so sorry!
    Stopping in the middle is
    DISTINCTLY
    UNPATRIOTIC!

    Wasnt the hunger games supposed to be super violent? I highly doubt many people take there 5 year olds to see the hunger games. Hunger games "popularity" will have no effect on merida's popularity.

    I'll be honest...I'm not really a fan of the character designs for Brave, and they do remind me of Dreamworks in look...but I have high hopes for the story and dialogue and I'm still excited to see it.


    Anyhow, glad that Merida is getting her own meet and greet (though I have to say I'm jealous of the setup WDW is getting). I hope the newer princesses get better embraced in merch. I've only ever discovered one Rapunzel ladies top - it's a limited edition and I own it, but I want to see more! These hip Disney Princess womens lines need to showcase the new faces, too.

    I wasn't aware the target audience was 5 year olds. The main character is described as a "headstrong teenager"...plenty of Disney movies are popular with teens and adults.

    ORDDU: While this movie may appeal to some, it comes across as being something that might appeal mostly to 'Tomboy' types. John Lasseter seems to have great difficulty relating to the feminine side of Life so he makes most of the females in his films to be just that--Tomboy's. Jessie is a prime example. Now it seems as though Meridia will also be a Tomboy. I would have preferred that John hadn't fired the original woman director for Brave. Back when it had the working title of The Bear & the Bow, the story was going in a different direction. But John decided to show her the door--the same as he did to Glen Keane when he didn't like Glen's version of Rapunzel.

    Any news as to when Merida may be in DLR. I know it was annouced mid-May. But I was wondering if there is an actual date. She has been doing test at Epcot/WDW this week before she lands in Fantasyland/WDW.

    Wow, quite a bit of misinformation there...

    I watched a video of her talking with some guests and I wasn't impressed by much other than her amazing hair.
