As an avid Pixar fan who has seen all of the Pixar films so many times that I have the scripts memorized, I have been waiting, patiently, for Brave for some time now. I have savored every teaser trailer and stared in wonderment at the beautiful Scottish princess with the wild red hair and blue eyes who is determined to change her fate. So, does Brave live up to the hype? For the most part, yes. I had forgotten that Disney's acquisition of Pixar allows Disney to put its princess stamp on a Pixar film, even if it muddles and otherwise awesome film.
