Disney‘s got a new princess on their hands and her name isn’t Leia. Last year’s animated blockbuster Brave introduced the tiny red headed Merida to the Disney lineup of royal personages.

Merida will be officially coronated as the 11th Disney Princess in a ceremony on May 11th at Disney’s Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida. The creative team has come up with a new look below for the newly crowned princess.


Merida will be joining the other Disney Princess’s, Snow White, Mulan, Aurora, Belle, Tiana, Ariel, Cinderella, Jasmine, Pocahontas, and Rapunzel in an event that will undoubtedly be magical.

There should be some video coming, both official and from the attending fans when the ceremony takes place. We’ll keep our eyes out and bring it to you when it hits the Internet.

But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks.

Disney & Pixar Studios have released a clip from their upcoming film, ‘Brave’ where the ancient customs of the Celtic take center stage with main character Merida, and her family. In the following clip we get a glimpse of Merida and her family’s interaction with another, as we hear her father,King Fergus, tell the  infamous tale of how he lost his leg. Disney has also announced, via press release, that  the world premiere of Brave will be held on June 18th at the grand opening of the new Dolby Theatre in LA.

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.

Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late. In Theaters June 18th.

Coming from Disney‘s French Youtube channel is the first of what I’m suspecting will be many, “Brave Stories” featurettes. It’s a primer for Pixar’s next film and in particular the leading lady, Merida. The video also contains new footage with plenty shots of Merida’s beautiful, bushy and bouncy red hair.

This film can’t release soon enough! Stay tuned as more clips and short featurettes will surely be shared in the coming weeks leading up to Brave‘s June 22nd release date.
