Brave (previously titled The Bear and the Bow) is an upcoming film that will be Pixar Animation Studios' thirteenth animated feature film. The film will be written by Brenda Chapman and directed by Mark Andrews. It will be produced by Katherine Sarafian. The film is scheduled to be released on June 22, 2012 and is currently in production.
Here is a short extract from a Disney press release about the project (there have been a few changes since the press release, most notably the working title to 'Brave' and a change of Director):
"A rugged and mythic Scotland is the setting for Pixar's action-adventure "The Bear and the Bow." The impetuous, tangle-haired Merida, though a daughter of royalty, would prefer to make her mark as a great archer. A clash of wills with her mother compels Merida to make a reckless choice, which unleashes unintended peril on her father's kingdom and her mother's life. Merida struggles with the unpredictable forces of nature, magic and a dark, ancient curse to set things right. Director Brenda Chapman ("The Prince of Egypt," "The Lion King") and the storytelling wizards of Pixar conjure humour, fantasy and excitement in this rich Highland tale."
