Animated Adventure
Kelly MacDonald: Princess Merida
Billy Connolly: Merida’s father King Fergus
Emma Thompson: Merida’s mother Queen Elinor
Kevin McKidd: Lord MacGuffin
Craig Ferguson: Lord Macintosh
Robbie Coltrane: Lord Dingwall 
Julie Walters: the Witch

Told from the viewpoint of a rebellious teenager, in this case a tomboy named Merida, the story unfolds pretty well non-stop. There is lots of action and some chuckles along the way as well as a few scenes that would be too frightening for the very young, those under 6 I’d say.

The photo-realistic visuals are stunning, showcasing the landscape of Scotland like we’ve never seen before. Overall a pleasant enough outing, just not all that original.

 for some scary action and rude humour.
