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! The witch grants Merida a wish, but it of course has consequences, turning the forest into a threatening wilderness. 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?
