Brave (formerly titled The Bear and the Bow) is Pixar’s first fairy tale, from acclaimed filmmaker/writer Brenda Chapman (The Prince of Egypt). Chapman began as an additional animation artist on Who Framed Roger Rabbit and contributed story for The Little Mermaid, The Rescuers Down Under, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Fantasia 2000, Chicken Run and Cars.
A rugged and mythic Scotland is the setting for Pixar’s action-adventure “The Bear and the Bow.” The movie is being touted as Pixar’s first fairy tale. The film stars Reese Witherspoon as the “impetuous, tangle-haired Merida, though a daughter of royalty, would prefer to make her mark as a great 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 to set things right. Director Brenda Chapman and the storytelling wizards of Pixar conjure humor, fantasy and excitement in this rich Highland tale.”
Witherspoon’s character is apparently the “brave” character referred to in the title. A much better better title, in my opinion. The film originally had a Christmas 2011 release date, but has been pushed back to Summer: June 15th 2012.
