Disney & Pixar's character overview of the queen mother is as follows:
A vision of grace, wisdom and strength of character, Queen Elinor is fiercely dedicated to the well being of her familiy and kingdom. As the measured, diplomatic counterpoint to her more impulsive husband, King Fergus, Elinor carries the weight of the kingdom on her shoulders.
And if you think for a moment that this mother has it made, take a look at her defiant, but magnificent daughter, Merida.
Being a mother of two, I always keep my eye out for animated movies that have heart. This mystical tale deals with family, witches and beastly curses. Sounds fun, huh? This one is on my must-see list this summer. Brave hits theaters June 22nd.
