And the Oscar goes to BRAVE for best animated feature. Pixar Studio hit gold with the story of the willful, auburn-haired princess, Merida.
The Scottish princess sets out on an adventure to choose her own life. Along the way she meets a woodland witch who grants her a wish. As with most wishes, it doesn’t turn out the way Merida intended. Her mother and brothers are turned into bears. Her father is a famous bear hunter. The race is on to reverse the wish before tragedy happens. In the end, Merida finds her place as princess isn’t so bad after all. This is the first Pixar movie with a female lead character but their seventh Oscar.
Pixar studio is best known for Toy Story and Cars, which aren’t just movies but features at the Disney Resorts. Kids can meet their favorite characters at both Disneyland and California Adventure.
Merida shows visitors to Disneyland how to use a bow and arrow. Find her across from the It’s A Small World ride.
Other nominees for best animated feature were Frankenweenie, ParaNorman, Wreck-It-Ralph and Band of Misfits.
