I was invited to preview Disney/Pixar’s Brave before it opened last week, and I decided to take all three of my kids (plus my husband). That was me being brave. We love Disney Pixar movies. We own just about all of them on Blu-Ray and are looking forward to adding Finding Nemo to our collection when it comes out this fall. Toy Story and Cars can often be found playing on our tablet for Jamey-entertainment.
This was Jamey’s first time in a regular showing at the movie theater.
Jamey is a rowdy kind of guy.
Not so good at the sitting still thing. Most three year olds aren’t, but he’s a little worse than most. I was so worried that he was going to disturb the other people around us. I get a little sensitive about Jamey and some of his behaviors, because I know some people just think he’s bad and doesn’t listen. He doesn’t mean to be. And except for falling off of Dad’s lap and bumping his head, he did really well for a three year old boy who doesn’t like to sit still. The sheer amount of snacks he had might have influenced this, as well.
And Brave joins that list of fantastic movies that should not be missed.
For the moms of younger kids, there are some scary moments. Jamey wasn’t afraid, but my friend’s little girl behind us was. It is probably a movie for the 5 and up set. Not to give away any spoilers, the movie features Merida, a princess in the Scottish Highlands who wants to change her fate and avoid a marriage. She has triplet younger brothers, who are just adorable. Her mother and father obviously love each other very much (there is a wee bit of leering, but nothing too terrible). Some of the movies themes include cartoon violence, witchcraft, and some scariness.
My husband and I enjoyed it. My teenage son enjoyed it. My tween daughter enjoyed it. Jamey enjoyed it.
Go see Brave and let me know how you like it. There is a Sensory Friendly showing on Saturday at AMC 30!
