Grand speculation time: The Pixar Blog has put together some tweeted info and discussions with undisclosed sources to come up with the theory that Bono and perhaps The Edge are writing a song or music of some sort for Brave, the in development Pixar film that was formerly titled The Bear and the Bow.
The thread seems pretty thin, based on a visit Bono paid to Pixar and some other conversations that TPB isn’t disclosing. Not the biggest stretch to think this might happen, and it would probably be a step up from Bono and The Edge working on the Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark musical. But it also seems slightly out of character for Pixar. (And, personally, I can’t decide which I’d like less: new music from this duo or from Randy Newman. Can’t say I’m much a fan of either.)
Brave will see release in Summer 2012, and below is some of the info we’ve previously collected on the story:
Brave 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.
