During our first press day at Pixar, we viewed La Luna and 30 minutes from Brave. Jumping ahead to the second day, we sat in on a good number of discussions with Pixar employees on the many aspects of the film, from wearing kilts, playing bagpipes, engaging in archery, and Scottish culture. I was able to take pictures inside Pixar’s atrium and on the studio’s grounds, where the pieces of art and promo material made it apparent that the release of Brave is coming up fast. Check out the hi-res images after the jump!
When we arrived at Pixar for the second day, as we admired the large stones on the grounds, a gentleman in Scottish kilt and gear began to play the bagpipes, ushering us into the studio. Inside, we admired the Brave banners that had only gone up a few days earlier. Also up were the standees that have started to show up in movie theaters across the country. Also outside was an archery field, complete with teachers to show us how to hit the target. Archery is not easy, as it requires usage of muscles that we do not use often. Translation? It was not a pretty sight. I did manage to make contact but, alas, the bullseye alluded me. I have a newfound respect for Merida, who is a badass when it comes to archery.

There is much more to come from Brave in the next few weeks. The film releases in theaters on June 22!
