The Flick: Brave
The Skinny: Brave was directed by Mark Andrews from a screenplay by Brenda Chapman (The Prince of Egypt) and Irene Mecchi (Fantasia 2000). Pixar rewrote its animation system for the first time in 25 years to create the spectacular visuals in Brave.
The Players: Boardwalk Empire's Kelly Macdonald provides the voice of Merida, a strong-willed Scottish Highlands princess who defies her mother, Queen Elinor (voiced by Emma Thompson), by refusing to follow tradition. Wishing her mother would change her ways, Merida inadvertently makes a deal with a witch (Julie Walters) that causes the queen to turn into a large bear. Her family cursed and the Highland clans on the verge of war, Merida must find a way to right all of the wrongs she has caused while remaining true to her independent spirit. Additional voice talents include
Billy Connolly as King Fergus, Kevin McKidd as Lord MacGuffin, Craig Ferguson as Lord Macintosh and Robbie Coltrane as Lord Dingwall.
