Every year, Disney World showcases artwork from behind the scenes of upcoming Pixar films in its Animation exhibit. Pixar’s highly anticipated Brave is now on full display at the theme park. Unless you were lucky enough to attend the great “Art of Brave” panel at last year’s D23, you likely have not seen much more than a few pieces of concept art from the film. Twitter user Banks Lee, who is a self-described “Disney Parks fanatic” has shared a few images from the exhibit (kudos to @Stitch Kingdom for pointing the images out). Take a look at the images after the jump!
After viewing the trailers for Brave, it was not difficult to say that we were going to be getting one beautiful looking film. I cannot wait to get a closer look at the behind-the-scenes work in the Art of Brave book from Chronicle Books. I have no doubt it will be gorgeous.
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.
Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous 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 Witch (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.
Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and the signature Pixar humor enjoyed by audiences of all ages. The film takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
