Merida becomes the 11th Disney Pricess

Over the weekend, Merida from Pixar’s Brave1, was coronated as the 11th Disney Princess. As you can imagine, there are tons of great pictures and video of the event.

I am wicked jealous I did not get to attend2.

Of course, even a celebration like this is not without its controversy. Brenda Chapman, who received writing and directing credits for Brave but was [fired during its production[(http://articles.latimes.com/2011/may/25/entertainment/la-et-women-animation-sidebar-20110525), is not pleased with the 2D version of the Pixar character. There is an in-depth rundown of the whole kerfuffle at Theme Park Insider.
