Finally, Disney is getting with the program. Rather than another damsel in distress flick, we’ve got a “Brave” Princess who fights for her own hand, rebels against her family’s expectations, and is an all around badass with a bow. No more waiting for Prince Charming! This comes on the coattails of the Katniss Everdeen Hunger Games archery hoopla, and can only bring more popularity and hype to the sport.
The movie comes out on June 22, and I’m not sure if there is any hunting in it (wouldn’t that be a far cry from Bambi) but the preview does suggest that Merida, the fiery redheaded heroine, shoots a bear.
