UPDATE: Pixar's BRAVE...
Late last week, sources reported that during an interview with ComingSoon, Pete Docter, director of Pixar's new film Up, hinted at a title of a film that no one had known about, Brave. Some people speculated that it may be an in title for an adaptation of The Brave Little Toaster, which Pixar head John Lasseter was originally working on before the film adaptation left his hands.
Well, The Pixar Blog has seemed to have cleared things up, and it was what many of us expected. Brave is simply an internal name for Pixar's Winter 2011 feature, The Bear and The Bow, from writer/director Brenda Chapman, who is most famous for doing the Prince of Egypt. Starring Reese Witherspoon, the film is considered Pixar's first fairy tale, and tells the story of Merida, a daughter of royalty who strives to make her name as a great archer. She is the "Brave" character hinted at in the in title.
“A clash of wills with her mother compels Merida to make a reckless choice, which unleashes unintended peril on her father’s kingdom and her mother’s life. Merida struggles with the unpredictable forces of nature, magic and a dark, ancient curse to set things right."
Well, that was a bit anticlimatic. But still, the film sounds interesting, and of course everyone should be looking forward to it, as it's a Pixar film, and their first fairy tale. What do you think about this project?
Go see something good!
