"Brave centers on a fiercely independent Scottish princess, Merida, in the first ever female-led story from Pixar. Merida is the eldest child of King Fergus, who loses his leg to a formidable and legendary bear, and Queen Elinor in the kingdom of DunBroch. Merida, just like all teenage girls, has a beef with her overbearing mother. Queen Elinor has been striving, since Merida was a little girl, to shape her into the princess she ought to be. Merida wants nothing to do with it."
