An extended clip from Pixar’s upcoming Scottish adventure, Brave, just hit the internet. It presents one of those old-fashioned shoot-the-bullseye-to-marry-the-princess parties, with a procession of suitors showing off their archery skills. Things take a turn when Brave‘s star — ginger-haired Merida — decides to demonstrate her own talents with a bow and arrow. Brave looks a little bit like Mulan, and it’s refreshing to see Disney embrace a bold female protagonist after the marketing jiu-jitsu that was Tangled. Check out the clip below:
