Movie2k Movies – Brave Plot

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave“, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous 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.

Movie2k Movies – Brave Production Notes

Brave is Pixar’s first fairy tale, and is somewhat darker and more mature in tone than their previous films. Brenda Chapman considers it as a fairy tale in the tradition of Hans Christian Andersenand the Brothers Grimm. Chapman conceived the project and was announced as the director of the film, making her Pixar’s first female director, but in October 2010 she was replaced by Mark Andrews. Andrews has now been confirmed as the director of the film and Chapman as the co-director, although she is reportedly no longer working on the film.

Merida is the first female protagonist in a Pixar film. Merida was originally to be voiced by Reese Witherspoon, but she declined due to scheduling issues. Instead, the character will be played by the Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald.

Brave was initially set for release on June 15, 2012 but was later changed to June 22, 2012.
