PixArt Salutes The Pixar Heroine

Vencys_Lao_final

We couldn’t be more excited about Brave hitting theaters on June 22. By now, we’ve all heard that this is the first Pixar film to feature a female lead. But it’s certainly not the first Pixar heroine. In fact, there’s been quite a few strong female personalities in just about all of Pixar’s films – including Up‘s Kevin. So in honor of Merida and company joining the Pixar family, we thought we’d salute the Pixar heroines in the best way we know how – fan art. All this month we will be featuring your artwork celebrating our favorite females from the Pixar Universe. As always, you guys and gals delivered. We can’t wait to show you all the great work. And keep it coming. We will be posting new art throughout the month of June. [Read more…]

BRAVE Soundtrack

Pixar has an attachment to the composers that it works with, only hiring three to work on its eleven released feature films. However, director Mark Andrews and his team wanted something different for Brave, which is why the Scotland-born Patrick Doyle (Composer for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Thor) was given the job. Doyle, Scottish Gaelic singer Julie Fowlis, British folk rock group Mumford & Sons, singer Birdy and Pixar’s own songwriter Alex Mandel contributed to a soundtrack which houses three original songs.

Watch: New ‘Brave’ Clip Gives Us A Peek At Merida’s Family

Brave - Merida At Table With Family

In Brave, Merida’s family is quite the interesting bunch – her father (King Fergus) would rather joke than fulfill his obligations; her mother (Queen Elinor) is the serious one, ruling over the kingdom from behind-the-scenes; her triplet brothers silently partake in mischief on an endless drive to consume pies and other sweets. A new clip from the film was released earlier today, which gives us a glimpse at every single one of these characteristics. Take a look at the video after the break! [Read more…]

Her parents, King Fergus and Queen Elinor, along with her triplet brothers, may only be supporting players in the film’s story, but their time will come. Watch a new clip and featurette, and get to know Merida’s family better after the break! [Read more…]
