Meet Princess Merida in a New Featurette for Pixar's BRAVE
Published: April 11, 2012 - 8:01am
Disney and Pixar's upcoming Scottish-themed tale features the voices of Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly and Emma Thompson and is scheduled for theatrical release this June.
Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida is the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, Merida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom. In an attempt to set things right, Merida seeks out an eccentric old Wise Woman (Julie Walters) and is granted an ill-fated wish.
Also figuring into Merida's quest - and serving as comic relief - are the kingdom's three lords: the enormous Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), the surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), and the disagreeable Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane).
Brave features the voices of Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and Robbie Coltrane. The film is directed by Brenda Chapman and Mark Andrews and scheduled to hit the big screen on June 22nd, 2012.
