Merida is the not-so-lady-like princess from the 2012 Disney Pixar animated film, Brave. Where most princesses would be proper and prefer anything girly, Merida would much rather race her horse, practice archery skills, and play with her younger triplet brothers. Merida and her mother don’t have the best relationship because her mother wants Merida to do all the things that a tradition princess is expected to do. Merida wishes to change her fate from being a tradition princess.
Princess Merida represents young girls who don’t fit into the typical mold because she is quite headstrong, outgoing, and stubborn about her thoughts. Tomboyish and brave, Merida knows exactly what she wants in life and plans on accomplishing her own dreams rather than being told how to live her life. Merida’s rebellion against society’s expectations takes her on the adventure of a lifetime.
