MERIDA (Voice of Kelly Macdonald)
Passionate and fiery, Merida is a headstrong teenager of royal upbringing who is
struggling to take control of her own destiny. She feels most at home in the
outdoors honing her impressive athletic skills as an archer and swordfighter,
and racing across the magnificent Highland countryside with her faithful horse,
Angus. With a spirit as vibrant as her untamed hair, Merida also has a softness
of heart, especially when it comes to her wee triplet brothers. As the daughter
of the King and Queen, her life is weighted with responsibilities and
expectations, causing her to yearn to preserve her freedom and independence.
When Merida blatantly defies an ancient tradition, the consequences of her
actions prove disastrous for the kingdom. She must race against time to make
right the result of her reckless behavior, her journey compelling her to look
inside to discover the meaning of bravery and reveal her true fate.
QUEEN ELINOR (Voice of Emma Thompson)
A vision of grace, wisdom and strength of character, Queen Elinor is fiercely
dedicated to the well being of her family and kingdom. As the measured,
diplomatic counterpoint to her more impulsive husband, King Fergus, Elinor
carries the weight of the kingdom on her shoulders in order to maintain the
fragile peace between the volatile clans. Elinor strives to instill in Merida
the knowledge and manner of a royal, expecting complete commitment to Elinor's
standards. But her vision of her daughter's future is at odds with Merida's
rebellious spirit and desire to forge her own path, which ultimately causes
Elinor to face calamitous consequences.
KING FERGUS (Voice of Billy Connolly)
King Fergus is a heroic warrior with a majestic bear cape, broad sword and a
knobby peg leg - the result of his much-regaled skirmish with the demon bear Mor'du. His vendetta against the beast who took his leg makes Fergus a ferocious
and determined bear hunter, evidenced by a home full of mounted trophies of
every size. Protector of his kingdom and family, Fergus has a heart as big as
his triplet sons are mischievous and boundless love for his wife, Queen Elinor.
But his pride for his first-born daughter Merida is unmatched, and he has gifted
her his great skill and passion for the sword and the bow.
Identical triplets Harris, Hubert and Hamish are adorable, redheaded, and always
ready to stir up a bit of mischief, especially if sweets are at stake. They can
communicate wordlessly with their sly smiles, subtle glances and rascally
giggles. This troublemaking trio is particularly keen on sneaking through the
secret passages of the castle, mysteriously appearing out of walls, and playing
clever tricks on everyone, especially their father, King Fergus. They share an
extra special bond with their big sister, Merida, who is among the few who can
actually tell them apart.
Black as night with ivory muzzle and fetlocks, Angus is Merida's powerful
Clydesdale and her most trusted confidant. Angus is Merida's escape from castle
life into the deep forest and the highlands beyond. Merida target shoots from
her perch on his broad back and is able to coax him into one adventure after
another. Angus can be balky, stubborn and faint-hearted at times, but is
ultimately a devoted and faithful friend to Merida.
The three lords of the kingdom - Dingwall, Macintosh and MacGuffin - are the
unruly, overzealous leaders of their respective clans. Though once warring
factions, they have been united under the sword of King Fergus and held together
by the diplomacy and political savvy of Queen Elinor. The clans are summoned to
Castle DunBroch to compete in the Highland Games, but the lords are soon
outraged when Merida defies a sacred tradition. The clans fall back to their
history of fervent feuding, which threatens the fragile peace of the entire
LORD MACGUFFIN (Voice of Kevin McKidd)
Strapping Lord MacGuffin is full of brawn and dignity. Though a man of few
words, his deep voice resounds across the land demanding respect and
contributing to his reputation as the most even-handed and reasonable lord in
the kingdom. Even so, like his fellow lords, MacGuffin isn't opposed to a
first-rate brawl or full-throated belly laugh.
YOUNG MACGUFFIN (Voice of Kevin McKidd)
Speaking an uncommon Scottish dialect that is incomprehensible to most, Young MacGuffin is a shy lad of large proportions. Being the center of attention is
not his strong suit, but he will not hesitate to leap into a fight alongside his
father and clan when the occasion arises.
LORD DINGWALL (Voice of Robbie Coltrane)
Grumpy and quick-tempered, the scrappy Lord Dingwall doesn't let being
height-challenged get in the way of solving his problems with fisticuffs. Never
one to shy away from an old-fashioned fracas or high-spirited kerfuffle, he has
no qualms taking on even the burliest adversary to assert his own position in
Gangly, guileless and often lost in his own head, Wee Dingwall is the awkward
son of Lord Dingwall. Though Wee Dingwall displays an eagerness that outweighs
his inherited small size, his father will proudly employ his only son as an
attack dog when the moment is right.
LORD MACINTOSH (Voice of Craig Ferguson)
The wiry, indignant and off-kilter leader of his clan, Lord Macintosh is always
a heartbeat away from hysterics. His savage smile and fierce appearance - body
bedecked in blue war paint and chest pridefully puffed up - proclaim that he's
ready for battle at any moment, though his bark may be worse than his bite.
As the first-born son of a lord, Young Macintosh knows he has it all - athletic
physique, undeniable charm and long flowing locks that leave the lasses swooning
in his wake. But vanity and legions of devotees can also be a distraction when
it comes to bragging rights at the Highland Games.
THE WITCH (Voice of Julie Walters)
Deep in the overgrown Highland forest, a ramshackle blackhouse cottage is home
to the Crafty Carver. This seemingly harmless, eccentric and long-in-the-tooth
crone specializes in the whittling of wooden bear trinkets, figurines and
curios. But the mysterious recluse is more than meets the eye. When Merida sees
through the guise and reveals her as the Witch she truly is, Merida begs for a
magical solution to her problems. The Witch begrudgingly gives in, conjuring a
haphazard spell with an obscure riddle, which hold Merida's fate in the balance.
