Last week, when I was visiting San Francisco for the American Atheists meeting, I had the opportunity to tour the Pixar campus. Craig Good, who has been with Pixar since before they were the Pixar we know and love, very kindly invited me out and showed me a ton of stuff that I am legally required to not show you.
But! There is something I can mention:
Pixar is working on a film that looks to be their very best yet, and it’s the first one starring a female leading character. I saw some gorgeous concept art hanging at Pixar (you can see some concept art for it here), and now an image of the heroine has officially been released.
Here’s the storyline, from Disney via IMDB:
Set in Scotland in a rugged and mythical time, “Brave” features Merida, an aspiring archer and impetuous daughter of royalty. Merida makes a reckless choice that unleashes unintended peril and forces her to spring into action to set things right.
Thanks to Craig Good and to Chris Ford for showing me around Pixar and for giving me awesome toys as souvenirs!
