Tangled beats out Brave's box office by about 60 million or so...so in the grand scheme, they were pretty "on par" box office wise.

IMO, though, while I do love Merida as a character, Tangled was a better constructed story. I remember commenting to DH when we saw Brave that it seemed like there was no time at all spent on Merida and her mother working on their issues when her mother was a bear..it was all montaged, and not really developed as well as it could have been.

I really enjoyed Brave, don't get me wrong..but Tangled was a better film IMO

Brave actually did better than Tangled, which grossed less than it's production budget. Brave, though I'm probably missing one, was the second-lowest grossing Pixar film behind Cars 2, which was a sequel.

Princess and the Frog did abysmally, so much so that Bob Iger had to name Anika Noni Rose a Disney Legend with the other princess voices as a way to defend and validate the awful film.

Regardless, I think it's safe to say that we hopefully won't be seeing Brave 2 in the theaters. Ever.

Domestically, yes, brave did better...I didn't clarify that I was looking at the worldwide box office numbers...sorry about that. Worldwide tangled grossed more than brave by about 60 million. Domestically brave beat tangled by about 30-40 million

According to http://www.the-numbers.com/, Brave was in the middle of the pack of Pixar films in both domestic and international numbers.
