Wow, is really all I can say! I don’t know a whole lot about this movie yet but the art is beautiful! It reminds me of my last visit to Disney World, when I spent hours in the artist’s studio. When I see the art; the still animations sitting flat on the page I remember that they are so much more than movies my kids enjoy! They are works of art sketched out by an artist, they are created then edited on a computer and brought to life in such a way you forget your watching art in action; it just becomes real, and you’re a part of it. How awesome is that? During my last visit I had the pleasure of viewing all of the Princess & The Frog art, and I would love to see these in person as well, they are stunning.
Here is some basic info on the move from Disney:
“‘Brave’ is an epic adventure chock-full of action, humor and heart,” says director Mark Andrews. “There’s no more perfect setting for this powerful tale than the dark and rugged Scottish Highlands. Imagine: magic, mystery and danger—all set within a haunting and beautiful landscape. It’s like nothing you’ve seen before from Pixar.”
The film features Kelly Macdonald as the voice of Merida, a skilled archer and the 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 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 old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.
I will do my best to post the previews of this film as soon as they are released!
