Merida, the boundary-breaking heroine of Pixar's Brave, officially gains the title of Disney's eleventh Princess today — one which, ironically, she would not give a crap about. But she appears to have stopped into a Sephora, a Weight Watchers, and a BCBG on the way to her coronation. And they took away her bow and arrows. Not cool.
The heroine of Brave is a welcome departure from other Disney princesses: Her plot wasn't moved along by a sacrifice-worthy crush on a dude, e.g. Little Mermaid's Ariel (giving up her voice! Hello there, on the nose metaphor). In fact, there's real love interest for Merida at all; she simply gives zero fuqs. Meanwhile, in the magical world of Disney, even the tomboy heroine Mulan had a thing for her captain (voiced by Law & Order SVU's B.D. Wong, in case you wanted your mind FUCKING BLOWN THIS MORNING).
