Merida: The First Animated Character to Literally Come Alive

Disney has been casting princesses for years, and they’re always pretty girls who smile and wave and take pictures with all the little boys and girls.

But they’ve gone one step further with their Merida casting, and have done their best to make the real-life version a living, breathing copy of the animated original. She’s gorgeous, obviously, but past that has the Scottish accent and personality to match, and really take the effect all the way to eleven. I don’t know enough Scottish people to declare that this is a fake accent (though I’m guessing it is), but she’s doing a damn fine job nonetheless.
