It is special work of Pixar. Normally Pixar doesn't make this kind of story (Like a "Princess", "Traditional Fairytale" ) . However, it is not good challenge for Pixar. Pixar always tried to make a new type of animation stories. Which are often combined with nowadays society, and children's mind. These style is really unique and fit to recent society.  But unfortunately in point of my view, it is not new, and tasteless. I guess that when we think about the "Fairytale of Princess", vast majority people imagine that "falling love, "Fantastic characters" a cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty,

Although "Brave"'s elements is really realistic. Bear, and Horse is just horse, and bear. 

Also, there are no prince and love with men. Actually this story focus on the relationship between mother and daughter. But honestly this type of concept is not fit to the traditional princess story. In my opinion, if we want to explain the Love of family by this style, we need another elements and have to combined with this concept.

I can say same thing for Frozen. These two works has same problem.

Except to this problem, I thought that visual and technique of CG animation is quite high. Absolutely Pixar's technology is higher than nowadays Disney's CG animation.
