Disney Celebrates Merida This Mother's Day Weekend

By Nidia Caceros, Disney Consumer Products
In just one day, Disney will celebrate Merida’s inner qualities of strength, bravery, determination, passion and confidence as she is officially welcomed into the Disney Princess royal court. Merida’s Royal Celebration will be hosted at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World on May 11 during Mother’s Day Weekend, a perfect time to recognize and celebrate Merida’s relationship with her own mother. We know many of our fans are excited to celebrate Merida and are inspired by her story and the spirited optimism she embodies. I sat down with Katherine Sarafian, producer of Disney·Pixar’s Brave, to talk about Merida’s defining qualities and the special relationship she shares with her mother, Queen Elinor.

UPDATE (October 23, 2012): We released a new image from the video's final scene today. We think it shows that the 3-minute video actually reinforces a healthy body image. In the final scene, we see the Minnie Mouse we all know and love. She looks into the mirror and realizes how happy (and fashionable) she is in her designer Lanvin dress. We hope this provides additional clarification.
