Besides sporting my wild Princess Merida hair today, I must say Brave is one film I’m really excited for for many reasons. The least of which is what we heard from co-director Mark Andrews earlier this week. He said Princess Merida, “isn’t your typical princess. She doesn’t wear nice clothes except in a couple of scenes when her strict mom, Queen Elinor, makes her do it for special functions. She’s an active and action-oriented person. She wants to get out in the outdoors of the Highlands, escaping from castle life and exploring the woods.”

Brave stars Scottish actress Kelly MacDonald (Boardwalk Empire, No Country For Old Men) as Princess Merida, her mother, Queen Elinor is played by Emma Thompson and her father King Fergus by Billy ConnollyCraig FergusonKevin McKidd and Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid from Harry Potter) add their voices to the cast as well. It hits theaters June 22 of next year.
