I Fail Paganism Forever

So I went to see Disney/Pixar's Brave as soon as it came out, and strongly identified with Merida, and saw some familiarity in the mother-daughter dynamic. But what I failed to really notice until just now was that the movie presented what should have been a very obvious and familiar set of archetypes:

The Maiden

The Mother

The Crone

I apologize for the oversight, and will try to be more observant in the future.  :D

  1. I didn't notice that either! How sad! Oh well, it was still a great movie. <3
