I was derping around on the interwebz, when an ad for the new Pixar movie, Brave, caught my eye. Being a proactive parent, I clicked on the link to prepare myself for the barrage of merchandise and promotional items I am no doubt going to be begged to buy.
And then I was shocked.
A female lead. A powerful, dynamic, strong female lead in a movie targeted at children.
I mean sure, there are the Disney “Princesses” (Technically, not all of them are Princesses…..just sayin) but think about it: they are all somewhat dependant on a male counterpart. Hopefully this movie will not follow that pattern and give my girls a true heroine to look up to.
