Many years after this attack, Queen Elionor has given birth to three identical triplet boys and Merida has become a free-spirited teenager. Elinor then informs her that she is to be betrothed to one of her father’s allied clans. She is then reminded by her mother about the legend about a price who ruined his own Kingdom and warms her that her failure to marry could harm the kingdom! However, Merida is not happy with the arrangement.

After cutting the family tapestry in anger, Merida flees to the woods where she is lead by the will-o-wisps to the hut of an elderly witch who is posing as a wood carver. After a bit of bargaining, the witch agrees to give her a spell which will change her mother; in the form of a cake!
Merida then goes back to the castle and gives her the cake which causes her mother to transform into a large bear. With the help of her brothers, Merida and Elinor return back to the witch’s deserted cottage where they find out that the spell will be permanent unless undone by
the second sunrise. The witch has left Merida a riddle, metioning that she must “mend the bond torn by pride”. As the two begin to reconcile, it is clear that the spell is becoming slowly permanent as Elinor ofter loses control and acts like a bear. After encountering the wisps again, the two follow the acient ruins and discover that Mor’du was once the prince in Elinor’s legend, who received the same spell from the witch. Merida then has an idea that she can reverse the spell by reparing the family tapestry.
