Closer Look At ‘Brave’ Pre-Production Art At Disney World

Yesterday, we featured a few pictures of the new Brave display at Disney World’s Magic of Disney Animation attraction. While it gave us a glimpse into the film’s pre-production art, it naturally left us wanting a closer look. If you live near Orlando, Florida, it has now become a must-see exhibit. For those unable to make the trip, Denise from MouseSteps has you covered. She has captured dozens of close-ups, as well as a video walking through the various pieces of artwork and maquettes. Take a closer look at the Brave display after the jump!


Make sure to check out MouseSteps, where Denise has posted many more pictures from her trip to the attraction.

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.

    Beautiful display-thanks for the photo report. It’s kind of exhilarating and strange to see all this production art finally out in the open-hope there’s a similar display planned for Disneyland here in Socal. All this and much more is going to be in the Art of Brave book where everyone can put the names of the artists who did these to their work: Steve Pilcher, Steve Purcell, Matt Nolte…all brilliant.
