'Brave' is a classic adventure/fantasy movie, animated by Pixar and directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman. Princess Merida (Macdonald) is stubborn and absolutely determined to live a more exciting life than the one she has in her family's kingdom in Scotland. Her parents, King Fergus (Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Thompson) want to shelter her -- they'd like to see Merida married off. That's definitely not what Merida wants. She craves adventure and longs to be off on her own, independent of anyone and everything. That certainly breaks with the kingdom's royal traditions and expectations, and her parents aren't happy about it. Merida eventually leaves the safety of her kingdom, with only her horse, Angus, for company. Can she survive in the wild? Merida does have skills: She's extremely handy with a bow and arrow, and her archery skills will come in handy as she faces enemies unlike anything she's ever known before.
So what are best quotes Brave? Take a look at this list and you'll get that answer.
Arrows Into the Sunset
Poor Queen Elinor: She's having such a hard time accepting that Merida is determined to be her own person. She's trying hard to understand, and King Fergus decides to help her (with humor).
King Fergus: "Pretend I'm Merida. Speak to me. What would you say?"
Queen Elinor: "I can't do this..."
King Fergus: "Sure you can." (Elinor gives him a dirty look) "There! There! That's my queen. Right? Here we go..." (in a shrill voice): "I don't want to get married, I want to stay single and let my hair flow in the wind as I ride through the glen firing arrows into the sunset."
Merida is determined to alter the course of her life, but at what cost? The price may be far higher than she realizes. The Wise Woman (Julie Walters) gives her the spell she wants, though it's certainly NOT what she'd expected.
Princess Merida: "I want a spell that will change my fate."
The Price of Freedom
Princess Merida isn't your "typical" princess. She's not content to live within the castle's walls, biding her time until her suitor comes, marries her and takes her away to yet another sheltered life. Merida wants her freedom, clearly, but her mother, Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson) isn't happy about that...
Princess Merida: "I don't want my life to be over...I want my freedom!"
Queen Elinor: "But are you willing to pay the price your freedom will cost?"
Is Merida's headstrong nature King Fergus' fault? Probably not, but Queen Elinor needs a scapegoat here, so she blames her (stubborn) husband for Merida's fiercely independent nature. see more on Stubborn
Queen Elinor (to King Fergus): "I blame you. Stubbornness is from your side of the family..."
