Pixar's Brave director Mark Andrews unveiled more about the movie plot in a Scotland’s Daily Record interview :
Originally titled The Bear And The Bow, it's about the adventures of Merida, a feisty archery-loving Scottish princess voiced by Kelly Macdonald.
She is at odds with her controlling but loving parents King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson) and gets in trouble with some magic which has consequences for the whole kingdom.
Mark said: "It's all about the relationship between a mother and daughter, and how this young woman has problems with her mother...
"When she has a problem with her mother over marriage, she gets a magic spell to try to stop her mother bothering her with the suitor business.
"But it actually changes her mother into a bear."
Hmmm...didn't we see a bear in Brave's first trailer released this week? Check again below and then jump to the Daily Record web site to read mark Andrews full interview.
