Brave is a 2012 American 3D computer-animated fantasy adventure film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. It was written by Mark Andrews, Steve Purcell, Brenda Chapman and Irene Mecchi, directed by Andrews and Chapman and co-directed by Purcell. The film's voice cast features Kelly Macdonald, Julie Walters, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson, Robbie Coltrane and John Ratzenberger. To make the more complex visuals possible, Pixar completely rewrote their animation system for the first time in 25 years.
In Brave, set in the highlands of 10th century Scotland, a skilled archer named Merida defies an age-old custom, causing chaos in her kingdom. After consulting an elderly wise woman for help, her family becomes cursed and Merida is forced to undo the spell herself before it is too late. Brave premiered on June 10, 2012 at the Seattle International Film Festival, and was released on June 22, 2012, in North America.
Preceding the film is a short film entitled La Luna, directed by Enrico Casarosa.
Announced in April 2008 as The Bear and the Bow, 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 Andersen and 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 following creative disagreements.
Merida is the first female protagonist in a Pixar film. She was originally to be voiced by Reese Witherspoon who declined due to scheduling issues. Instead, the character was voiced by Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald, recently acclaimed for her role as Margaret Schroeder in HBO's Boardwalk Empire.
John Ratzenberger, who is Pixar's "good luck charm", having been in every Pixar film to date, was cast in Brave, voicing a guard named Gordon in a Scottish accent.
The end credits include a special tribute to Steve Jobs.
