Brave Movie by Disney Pixar

Update - Director Brenda Chapman kind of left the project but she will still receive a co-director credit. Director Mark Andrews has now taken over the film.


Brave is an upcoming 3D CGI animated movie by Disney Pixar. The film is directed by Brenda Chapman (who once brought us The Prince of Egypt): the movie Brave is the first Pixar production to be helmed by a female director. The release is scheduled for June 22, 2012.

Here's a first concept art of the movie Brave:

Brave moviePlot:
"In rugged and mythic Scotland, the impetuous, tangle-haired Merida (Reese Witherspoon), though a daughter of royalty, would rather make her mark as an archer. A clash of wills with her mother compels Merida to make a reckless choice, which unleashes unintended peril on her father's kingdom and her mother's life. Merida struggles with the unpredictable forces of nature, magic and a dark ancient curse."

The film, Pixar's first fairy tale, is said to be a combination of Brenda Chapman's love of Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm, as well as a reflection on raising her daughter. Well, Pixar's take on a fairy tale will certainly bring a breath of fresh air to the genre. Pretty sure that Pixar will once again deliver a great animated movie.
