Merida, the impetuous but courageous daughter of Scottish King Fergus and Queen Elinor, is a skilled archer who wants to carve out her own path in life.

Her defiance of an age-old tradition angers the Highland lords and leads to chaos in the kingdom. Merida seeks help from an eccentric witch, who grants her an ill-fated wish.

Now, Merida must discover the true meaning of courage and undo a beastly curse before it's too late.

‘Merida is an appealing heroine, and the colourful cast of characters is great fun, voiced by a line-up of outstanding talent such as Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Julie Walters and Craig Ferguson’ – Mathew Lucas, The Dispatch

‘The story for this revisionist fairy tale … promotes contemporary attitudes about parenting and gender equality’ – Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
