A-Z Challenge: "Q" is for Queen Elinor

The A-Z Challenge continues with the letter "Q." I've discussed several characters this month and this time, I'd like to feature a new character,"Queen Elinor" from Disney & Pixar's upcoming animated movie, Brave.

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. 

What do you think? Does it look interesting? Do you like Queen Elinor?

I just finished watching a trailer for this. Looks like so much fun! I do hope that they don't turn it into a "boys suck" movie, though. It always makes me a little sad when they do that.

I can't WAIT to see this movie! I love a kicka** hero, especially Pixar's first Scott princess! The fact that she has wild, curly red locks and that fiery lilt to her voice, simply makes me swoon over the possibilities.

Looks great a fun mother/daughter movie. All that bow and arrow action made me think of The Hunger Games, for some reason, but I'm sure this movie would be much tamer and less bloody than THG.

I can't wait to see this movie, my girls keep talking about it. =)

Nice post.

It does! And I have a lot of animated movies to look forward to over the next few years, not bad, just something to get used to.

It's been awhile since I've seen an animated movie. I'd like to see this, though.

LOL I can't tell enough about the mother from that trailer to know how much I like her, but I'm a fan of the daughter ;)
