If you’re still dizzy with excitement from our first Group Giveaway post, you may need to sit down for this. We’re giving away three copies of the Ultimate Collector’s Edition for this year’s #1 animated movie, Brave!

If you’re lost, take a look at this fiery lass:

Now you remember. It’s the instant classic from Disney/Pixar that kids and adults alike flocked to the theaters to see this summer.

About the movie:

BRAVE is the gorgeous and fun film you’d expect from Disney/Pixar. Set in the ancient and magical Highlands of Scotland, the film follows the heroic journey of headstrong, young adventurer Merida. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida confronts tradition and defies an age-old custom that inadvertently unleashes chaos, and forces her to discover the true meaning of bravery.
