We had some disagreements at the Disney Odd Pod team about the music. We'll let you be the judge. Yay or nay?


Change your fate but not these facts.

  1. Kevin McKidd was particularly happy to work on this project because it was the first time in years that he'd been able to use his natural Scottish accent in a movie.

  2. This is the first Pixar movie set entirely in the historic past.

  3. Merida is the first Disney Princess to not have a love interest.

  4. Pixar moviemakers created the family tapestry using a technology that allowed them to create billions of individual threads.

  5. HIDDEN MICKEY: The belt that Queen Elinor wears in the first half of the movie forms a hidden Mickey when viewed from the front. You can see the distinct Mickey head and the two ears as connecting circles around her waist.


Like all Pixar movies you can adventure with Merida right here on Disney+
