New Heroines: Merida and Willow

Posted by on Wed, Sep 12 2012 at 06:36 PM CDT:

There are two animated heroines I suggest you add on your site (if possible).

The first is one of my favorite heroines (and Pixar's first leading lady), Merida from Brave. She's feisty, rebellious, kind, courageous, nuanced, sincere, and not afraid to follow her heart. Merida, as one critic said, "has a spirit as fiery as her red hair." Even though she may be defiant, unruly, and stubborn, Merida is not a spoiled brat. Not only does she make mistakes, she also learns from them, and she's a character I can identify with. Merida is one brave lass, and kudos to Kelly Macdonald for creating her amazing voice.

Top Ten Merida Quotes:
10. "This is what you've been preparing me for my whole life!"
9. "Every carving... and one spell."
8. "I choose archery."
7. "That's a nice story.
6. "Why a bear?"
5."SHUT IT!"
4. "Whoosh! One swipe, his sword shattered. Then, chomp! Dad's leg was clean off! Down the monster's throat it went."
3. "You're covered with fur! You're not naked!"
2. "I am Merida, firstborn descendant of Clan DunBroch! And I'll be shooting for my own hand!"
1. "There's no one to blame but me. And I know that I need to amend my mistake and mend our bond."

The other heroine I suggest you put up is Fairy Princess Willow from Scooby-Doo and the Goblin King. This feisty fairy makes mistakes without meaning to and even though she disobeys her father, he still cares about her. Spunky, mischievous, and lovable, Willow helps Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, stands up against a greedy magician, and boy does she know how to take care of herself.

Top Ten Fairy Princess Willow Quotes:
10. "An evil magician stole my fairy powers! You must close the shop before he finds me here."
9. "I know, and I'm sorry, daddy."
8. "This is no prank!"
7. "Typical mortal!"
6. "Please, you must hurry before it's too late."
5. "Poor old Jack."
4."Staling my fairy magic isn't enough? Once you have a little power, all you want is more, more, MORE!"
3. "I shouldn't have snuck out early, and I'll never do it again, I promise."
2. "I'm free!"
1. "Thank you all so much. May the magic of the fairies be with you!"
