BRAVE Five Disk Ultimate Collector’s Edition REVIEW

After years of domination in the CGI Animated film genre, Pixar now seems to be human after all. When TOY STORY 3 hit theaters, it had stiff competition that year from HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, and last year RANGO took home the Academy Award for Best Animated Film. Thankfully, BRAVE seems to have righted the ship for them.

That being said, this year there is a lot of competition in the Animated genre, and it remains to be seen how it will fare versus all of the great animated films this year.

BRAVE is one of the shorter Pixar films you’ll find in their library, but it doesn’t skimp on the quality. Still a strong story filled with the strong characters that create a deep story and are filled with memorable moments. Not being one of Pixar’s best still makes it one of the better animated films you can get this year. The blu-ray release is filled with tons of bonus content as can only be expected from Pixar. Amongst the extras are the lovely short film LA LUNA, a commentary with director Mark Andrews, and some really informative featurettes for aspiring animators out there.

Official Synopsis:

An original and thrilling journey set in the ancient and magical Highlands of Scotland, BRAVE follows the heroic journey of the headstrong, young adventurer Merida. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida confronts tradition and defies an age-old custom that inadvertently unleashes chaos, and forces her to discover the true meaning of
bravery.
