One of my best friends has a mane of curly red hair and constantly enlightens me about the benefits of being a Big Red. Admittedly, it’s loads more unique than my dark brown hair and she can claim a whole bunch of movie character alter egos like Anne of Green Gables, Kate Winslet in Titanic and that girl from Suburgatory.
The best one yet will be Princess Merida in Disney Pixar’s Brave. Pixar released a new clip of the film that makes me even more excited to see it. This red-headed royal is stubborn, independent and determined to carve her own path in life. She must rely on her bravery and archery skills to reverse a beastly curse.
I have to say, this princess is a nice change from the songbird does we’re used to seeing (I’m looking at you Cinderella). It also makes the two coolest Disney princesses (in my opinion) red heads, as they already claim The Little Mermaid.
The film’s due out in June, so my countdown is starting now. Only four months, give or take to go. Are you excited to see it?
