On this week in Disney History, “Brave” debuted in theaters, introducing us to the bold, strong Princess Merida.


In the film, Merida, daughter to King Fergus and Queen Elinor, is determined to shape her own future. In doing so, Merida’s actions unleash chaos among the Scottish Lords, and accidentally unleashes a dangerous curse. In the end, Merida must discover the true meaning of bravery to save her family before it’s too late.

Thanks to Photographer Ryan Wender for these great shots.

  • I think that the model for Princess Merida in this live action shoot is about 10 years too old if she is supposed to be the age of Merida in Brave. I thought that she looks, acts and is treated as a teenager. The model is a beautiful woman.

  • The photographer captured absolutely incredible moments with all of these pictures of Merida!

  • The third photo is beyond fierce! Absolutely gorgeous!

  • Any tips on becoming a Disney photographer? It would be so much fun to not only help families create memories while at the parks but to do photoshoots such as these!
