‘Brave’ Featurette ‘Brave Stories’ Features New Animation, Merida’s Path
Walt Disney Studios France has released this featurette titled ‘Brave Stories’ (or Rebelle as the film is known there). The featurette is narrated by Merida (Kelly Macdonald) as she explains her life as a princess and how she wishes to change her own fate, resulting in a hasty decision that leaves her with no choice but to be ‘brave’ to set things straight once again.
The rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland serve as the backdrop for Brave, a new tale that joins the land’s ancient lore — stories of epic battles and mystical legends passed down for generations. Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, Brave is the grand adventure of Merida, a skilled archer who confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts to discover the true meaning of courage.
The film also features the voices of Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and Robbie Coltrane. Brave, full of heart, memorable characters and Pixar’s signature humor, takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
