Disney Pixar’s Brave is now available at on Demand!NEWS | Nirasha Jaganath | November 23, 2012 at 9:27 pm
It felt forever that I was yearning for a movie like Brave: a girl who could have her own adventure without a prince. I managed to watch an early screening of Brave and loved it so and was intent on watching it again in the theater but my crazy schedule this year would not allow such indulgence and I resigned myself to wait a long time for it to be released on DVD. Luckily for me I was asked to be part of a little in home celebration for it being released on Demand. Who says no to that?
So when I told my girls we will be having our own Brave party they got cracking on making invitations. I dabbled with the idea of having their girlfriends over but I remembered how emotional I got when I saw it in the theater. The relationship between mom and daughter reminds me as much as mine with my (late) mom as it does with my girls. My girls were not too happy about that decision since our front door is like a revolving door to guests but I was super duper excited for the the entire setup. Chinese food was ordered (lo-mein anyone) , the Brave backdrop was hung and the red carpet was laid out. This had my girls giddy with excitement. I was giddy about being able to relax on a Friday night in the comfort of my home to watch a movie together.
So while I was busy Halloween shopping I bought each of my daughters a Merida costume. It was still packaged and this sounded like the perfect time to break open the packaging. The girls spied the red carpet and speedily got into the outfits, which is something they never to when dressing for school. They definitely oozed confidence as they walked the red carpet, something they obviously do not get from me. After strutting on the red carpet they were keen to show-off their poses in front of the backdrop. Then we began the movie while indulging in our take-out meal right there in the lounge, another indulgence for this special day.
I loved watching scenes I did not take in the details of properly when I first watched it. Admittedly the scenery had me itching to travel again as the sights of Scotland looked amazing. The story dripping with emotion and mysticism made for a perfect adventure for adult and child alike. You’d better check with your cable or satellite provider for Brave on Demand in your area.
If this is your first time to see Brave, here is a bit about the movie:
Set in the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland, Disney•Pixar’s “Brave” follows the heroic journey of Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to change her fate, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and 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), unleashing chaos in the kingdom. When she turns to an eccentric Witch (voice of Julie Walters), she is granted an ill-fated wish and the ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her resources—including her mischievous triplet brothers—to undo a beastly curse and discover the meaning of true bravery.
