The Witch of “Brave”

By Alexandra Heilbron on June 6, 2012 | 1 Comment

In the tradition of stories about epic battles and mystical legends that have entertained audiences since ancient times, comes the new animated movie Brave, about courageous and headstrong Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), who confronts tradition and challenges destiny. A skilled archer, this young red-headed princess defies a sacred custom, inadvertently unleashing chaos in the kingdom. Merida knows she has to make things right, and for help she turns to a mysterious, strange-looking recluse who’s actually a witch.

The witch, who specializes in whittling wooden trinkets and figurines, lives in a ramshackle blackhouse cottage deep in the overgrown Highland forest. Although she seems like a harmless crone, Merida sees through the guise and begs for a magical solution to her problems. The witch begrudgingly gives in, conjuring a haphazard spell with an obscure riddle. Instead of helping Merida, the ill-fated wish hold the girl’s fate in the balance. The exciting new film Brave opens in theaters on Friday, June 22.
