Cinderella is virtuous and gentle. Snow White is as pure as the driven snow. Belle has brains and beauty. With each movie, the Disney princesses are getting sassier and ballsier and Irish princess, Merida, of Disney’s Brave is that new sort of princess. Similar to Mulan with her warrior spirit, Merida is quite handy with a sword and deadly accurate with a bow and arrow. Unlike Mulan, who honored and upheld family tradition, this sassy Scottish lass of flaming red curls rebels against anything that contradicts her fiery indepenence and freedom.
She is … your typical teenager (albeit, without the medieval weaponry efficiency).
And like many teenagers, Princess Fireball wants to be the mistress of her own fate rather than her overbearing queen-mother. But be beary careful what you wish for lassy, you just might get it.
