**That's a good question, since the theory could work perfectly without it.

* To all those who subscribe to the Pixar Theory, where do you get the idea that Boo actually grew up to become the witch from ''Brave''? Just because she had a Sully cameo in her house? And is obsessed with bears? Any other reason? Because in ''Monsters Inc.'', Boo thought Sully was a ''cat'' - that's why she called him "Kitty" - so wouldn't it make more sense for her to be obsessed with ''cats'' rather than obsessed with bears?

** It's not just with this story, either...Disney has done it at least with one other, too. They've released two movies so far involving the bonds that exist between brothers (''Brother Bear'' and ''Big Hero 6''), both of which were focused on a revenge plot, with one character's center being "love" and a revenge-stricken person failing to see the use of it (Baymax and Hiro, Kenai and...Kenai), having two brothers with similar-sounding names (Denahi and Tadashi, anyone?) and featuring foils and parellels between the heroes and "villains", [[spoiler: who were both only fighting for the sake of their child (Professor Callaghan and his daughter, Abigail, and Koda and his mother).

*** ^ Exactly. Note how, in the end, the suitor who actually ''won'' her hand, albeit unintentionally, basically admitted that he ''didn't'' want her. (At least not then.) "I didn't pick her out. It was ''your'' idea," he tells his dad.

*** Actually, Elinor was shown working on the tapestry after she'd spoken to Merida in her bedroom about the suitors. I'd assume that the room the tapestry is in is just a generic...room where people keep their stuff and hang out and such. (Probably the same one Merida was in during her dream-memory.) In this case, the sword could've been one of Fergus's many weapons he kept inside.

** Not to mention, they didn't name the film based on which house Merida would belong to at Hogwarts, so typing up a big, long analysis saying she should've been sorted into X instead of Y because of W such and such reasons is more than a little redundant. And Merida ''was'' very brave in working so hard both to change her fate and to try and fix it when things went wrong - things like striking a deal with a witch, offering herself willingly to any of the three potential suitors, or riding out into the forest at night to take a stand against her father's men.

I am having a lot of trouble understanding why this movie is called ''Brave''. Putting it simply, if Merida went to [[HarryPotter Hogwarts]], she'd be in Slytherin, not Gryffindor (the house of bravery), for the behaviour she exhibits throughout the entire movie (selfishness in her refusal to even compromise with her mother, ambition in following her own dreams with zero regard for the consequences and by extension that she'll hurt a lot of people, using any means to achieve her own ends without thought or concern for others let alone the person she's using a spell on, touches of shrewdness and cunning, carrying grudges towards her mother that nearly lead to [[ThatManIsDead her]] [[TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody death]], [[NeverMyFault refusal to accept something was her fault]]- all Slytherin traits). I don't recall anyone, Merida or Elinor especially, being particularly cowardly about anything and thus needing to be brave. There was no fear in either deviating from tradition or following it. It wasn't like it was ever said that breaking tradition would bring a curse or anything. The bravery that is shown is against Mor'du, who ultimately isn't all that important because the story is about Merida and Elinor's relationship, not Mor'du. Mor'du is a plot device, not a villain.
