DISNEY PIXAR’S “BRAVE” TAKES AIM AT THEATERS IN JUNE 2012
Pixar Animation Studios’ 13th Feature-Length Animated Film Features the Voices of Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and Robbie Coltrane
BURBANK, Calif. (March 28, 2011) – With a courageous and impetuous heroine leading
the way, Disney Pixar sets out on yet another extraordinary journey—this time across
the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland in “Brave.” The big-screen adventure--
the 13th feature-length animated film from Pixar Animation Studios—is directed by Mark
Andrews (“The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” “John Carter of Mars”) and Brenda Chapman
("The Lion King," "Prince of Egypt"), and produced by Katherine Sarafian (“Lifted,” “The
Incredibles”). “Brave” opens in U.S. theaters on June 22, 2012.
“‘Brave’ is an epic adventure chock-full of action, humor and heart,” says director Mark
Andrews. "There's no more perfect setting for this powerful tale than the dark and rugged
Scottish Highlands. Imagine: magic, mystery and danger—all set within a haunting and beautiful
landscape. It's like nothing you've seen before from Pixar.”
The film features Kelly Macdonald as the voice of Merida, a skilled archer and the daughter of
King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.
“Brave” will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
