Happy Father's Day Weekend From Pixar's BRAVE!

As a father, I love how Pixar is marketing BRAVE. If you're a dad then you know what it's like to worry about your kids day in and day out, to watch them grow with pride and of course to make them laugh. Apply these traits to Pixar characters and you have the underpinnings of a wonderful family focused movie. 

I must say BRAVE has grown on me. I didn't know what to expect in the beginning but the marketing is beginning to resonate across the board since the beginning of the year. I'm still not sure about the story from everything I've seen, but I can just about guarantee that the characters will be amazing, the visuals awe inspiring and the soundtrack will be beautiful. Knowing Pixar, the story will be top notch. This isn't another corporately mandated CARS 2.

So looking forward to seeing this! Opens June 22.

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. From Disney and Pixar, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida(voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition and challenges destiny to change her fate.

“Brave” follows the heroic journey of Merida, a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her skills and resources – including her clever and mischievous triplet brothers – to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late, discovering the meaning of true bravery.

Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and signature Pixar humor that audiences of all ages around the world have come to eagerly expect. The film takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
