Star Wars To Be Directed By Former Pixarian Brenda Chapman? Here's Some Evidence…

Brenda Chapman – There has been more going on at Lucasfilm than top secret Star Wars meetings. For some time we’ve known that they were planning some kind of animated film about fairies. Last we heard, TMNT‘s Kevin Munroe was said to be directing from a script by David Berenbaum, the writer of Elf. 8 years 10 weeks ago via jetli

Director Brenda Chapman Says Disney Animation Hired Her Because She Was A Woman

Brenda Chapman – Animation fans were shocked when, a year-and-a-half before the film’s release, animation giant Pixar fired Brenda Chapman, an animation vet and the studio’s first female director (she was also the only female member of the studio’s vaulted Brain Trust creative committee), from her deeply personal first project, “Brave.” While Pixar maintained that she was still on staff, the writing was on the wall, and earlier this year it was announced she had decamped for an unspecified role at LucasFilm Animation. 8 years 14 weeks ago via donnieyen

Yes, The Pizza Planet Truck Is In Brave, And That’s Not All

Pizza Truck – There are lots of Pixar traditions, from the regular casting of John Ratzenberger to the repeated appearance of A113, the number of the classroom where John Lasseter studied at CalArts. One such recurring Easter Egg is the Pizza Planet truck, as first featured in Toy Story. There’s been some speculation as to whether or not this truck will appear in Brave, it being a period picture set in a Scotland of some not-entirely-distinct-but-seriously-pre-motor-vehicles past.

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.


New Stills From Pixar's 'Brave' – Another look at the Scottish tale. Pixar's Brave opens next August 17 in the UK, but the tiny drips and drops of teasers about the film are beginning to emerge from cracks in the Pixar strongroom, and here are two new exclusive stills from the already-gorgeous-looking, hopefully-awesome Highland epic. Set in unspecified ancient times and boasting an almost entirely Scottish voice cast, this is looking as sweet as shortbread. 9 years 10 weeks ago via brucelee
