"Look at me, Mama...I look just like Princess Merida!"
They're like twins, separated at birth and by continents, centuries,
and the fact that one of them is a fictional cartoon.

"Look at me, Mama...I'm Princess Katniss!"
Not even close, kid.  Katniss isn't even a princess.
(Hunger Games fans are probably thinking that Hallie looks a little like Effie...I agree.)

I don't think it's a coincidence that Hallie has recently gravitated toward these two bow-and-arrow-wielding heroines; I expect she's looking for a way to simultaneously live the lush life of a princess and physically dominate her older and larger brother.  (For the record, all Hallie knows about Katniss is that she uses a bow and wears a braid, but apparently that's all one needs to be considered a princess in Hallie's eyes.)
