More about Brave plot by Director Mark Andrews

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.

Oh dear...I smell a rotten tomato on the vine. Look at the characture features..just like those puff lotion commercials. It is almost like the face went back digitally 10 years.

The story..well another dark satanic theme just like Potter. Perhaps Disney can focus on fun rather than this type of dark, depressing life boring crap.

It is not too late for direct to blue ray digital and make next summer a better one. Poor old PIXAR..once it's leaders are dispersed the quality goes down.

Fix it now(Mr. Lasseter) and forget about the other divisions.

The theme is very promising: Scotland, middle age, legends... at least to me. The characters look nice Scottish.

It is too early to say anything else, just that I hope this movie is not a Disney style princess movie, which I think it is not.

I always have high hopes for Pixar, although I think the latest Cars movie has let their name down slightly.

I really hope this is good. Pixar usually never fail in telling a good story, but they are getting increased competition from other animation studios. Then again a little competition never hurt anyone.
