I saw at least one poster on here say they saw it with a 4-year-old. How was it from that perspective? The PG rating has me a bit scared off for now. I'd rather wait a year than have my DD covering her eyes, but if it's not that intense then I'd like to see it in the theater.

Just got back from seeing it. I thought it was a gorgeous film and funny in that clever Pixar way. I thought the story was inventive, too. Although I don't have kids, I could definitely see how some parts of the movie may be too intense for young audience members. There were a few scenes that were even a bit violent for me (and I'm 34!). Oh, I though La Luna was so cute!

I think it really depends on if your DD scares easily or not. It wasn't overwhelmingly scary- but my 5yo cried at one point, I think more so because she was worried about mumma bear getting hurt. She also spooks easily too.

I took my 4 year old niece yesterday. She said she only liked the good parts, but didn't like the "really scary parts" ... and she did sit in my lap and cover her eyes a couple times when the very big scary bear was on, he was pretty intense. I was a little surprised she liked it as much as she said she did, she talked about Merida alot after the movie when we went out to eat. My impression though was that Brave is for a bit older kids, 6 or 7 and up.

I'm actually looking forward to Brave. One of the times I'll be seeing it is with my 2 year old cousin. I don't know if she will like it.

Saw Brave...again! It was just as stunning the second time around. I am seriously obsessed with the whole movie. Merida's hair, the scenery, the wee little bears...GAH I love it so much!

And I saw the Pizza Planet Truck! I was so excited to find it.

Ack! I missed that one. I was paying more attention to where John Ratzenberger might pop up, and I'm pretty sure I know which character he was. I also very much enjoyed the film, and liked it a lot more than movies like Wall-E or a Bug's Life. La Luna was also very sweet.

A little hint: the truck is in the witch's cottage!

I also liked La Luna!

Just saw Brave last night...definitely my least favorite Disney movie so far. The story was missing something or a few things..can't quite put my finger on it. It was visually stunning, but I TOTALLY agree with a PP..the mother-into a bear-"thing" was completely bizarre and didn't work.

I think the movie could've done completely without the triplets and half of the fighting scenes. My favorite part of the movie is when she is in the forest shooting arrows, and them in the river with the salmon. The witch was a cool character too..but they could've put her in a lot more scenes to make it worthwhile to me.

This one rates down there with "Around the world in 80 days" and "Treasure Planet" just very underwhelmed. As much as Cars 2 was disappointing..I'd see that 10X more than I would Brave...just my .02

I think the more important thing is that it wasn't forced in any way, she felt like an actual person, it didn't feel like an "Okay we need to put in a strong independent woman who don't need no man" afterthought like they did at the end of Tangled.

I saw it with a four year old. There was one part (HUGE BEAR) where she covered her eyes probably for one minute at the most. She absolutely loved the rest of it!

I went yesterday with DD4 and niece 3. There were parts that were intense and in opinion, only a few moments that were truly scary - I felt my fault for not really looking into what the story was about before taking them, especially my niece, as she was a last minute addition to joining us. There was only one part where my DD was really scared but we had "greenie" a/k/a her blankie with us and she just hid her face in it at that time. She's watched a lot of Disney movies so she's come to understand everything with Villans and the scary parts so it wasn't too bad. My niece I think is still young enough where afterwards it didn't affect her (she just turnedc 3 5 days ago).
At the end of the movie DD4 declared that she "loved it!" She liked Merida even before seeing the movie and likes her even more now.
There was one part that I wasn't crazy about where a bunch of bare behinds were shown on the men and DD did question that and I had a hard time explaining (although she thought it was silly)
