Coming away from their first Rotten-rated film, last year's Cars 2
, Pixar looks to reestablish their dominance in the animation category with Brave
, the Scotland-set story of a young girl named Merida (Kelly Macdonald) who stirs up controversy in her kingdom when she defies an age-old tradition. Determined to follow her heart, Merida seeks counsel with an eccentric witch (Julie Walters) who grants her one wish, which comes with its own beastly curse. Brave
features Pixar's typically lush animation and an accomplished voice cast that includes Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, and Robbie Coltrane, among others.
