Too much of this is written as though the trailer was the only source of information, belying its origins as an article written before the film's release

"Change your fate."


Brave is Pixar's 13th film, featuring their first journey into the Fantasy genre (of the Fairy Tale kind), and their first female lead protagonist. It tells the tale of a Rebellious Princess named Mérida in the mythical Scottish Highlands who defies a sacred custom, bringing turmoil to the kingdom. She takes action herself, sports a bow and arrow, and goes on an adventure with the king's three lords to right her wrongs.

Originaly called The Bear and the Bow while in development, and also used to be helmed by Pixar's first female director, Brenda Chapman (The Prince of Egypt), but she was replaced by story artist Mark Andrews and Steve Purcell.

Tropes used in Brave include:

Mark Andrews: It's actually a non-period in Scotland ... Between the 8th and the 12th centuries.

  1. Hint, it's a Roman Numeral version of A113, a common Pixar Easter Egg.
