The studio also explained that the design has not been posted on any of the company’s official websites:

If you’re one of the many theatre-goers who made Brave a box office success, or if you’re one of the home video owners who’s currently making it an equally successful title in the Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital Platforms, you may want to bring a little of the Scottish Highlands to your home this coming new year and celebrate a traditional Hogmanay, which is basically the Scots’ word for the last day of the year, and is also their date of celebration for the New Year. Some of the few ways the Scots encourage good luck to enter their door on the last night of the year include hanging good luck charms in doorways and singing Auld Lang Syne.

John Lasseter and a witch reinvent the Disney Princess in Brave's Merida

Merida faces a pretty hefty problem: she’s being married off to one of three potential suitors, and she sorta hates them all. So what’s a princess to do? Head to an old witch for help, of course!

Of course, this doesn’t please her parents King Fergus and Queen Elinor, and also doesn’t necessarily sit well with the forest’s mysterious blue lights, called “wisps.” John Lasseter, head of Pixar, hopes to use Brave as a new benchmark for Disney Princess films, taking what he learned with Rapunzel in Tangled, and reinventing the fairytale genre. Sound like they’re on the right track yet?

Across the Highlands of Scotland, Merida uses her archery skills as well as royal birthright (daughter to King Fergus and Queen Elinor) to join the elite Disney Princesses – complete with her own Witch, and patented magical curse!
