Good for her!
Even though all of the films that movie powerhouse Pixar cranks out are genius, there has been a lack of estrogen behind the creativity. Now, that’s about to change. For the first time, a Pixar film will be directed by a woman.
Her name is Brenda Chapman and she is both writing and directing the thirteenth Pixar film, appropriately called Brave. Pixar is a pretty exclusive club so her skills must be great. Here’s a summary of the film:
The impetuous, tangle-haired Merida, though a daughter of royalty, would prefer to make her mark as a great archer. A clash of wills with her mother compels Merida to make a reckless choice, which unleashes unintended peril on her father’s kingdom and her mother’s life. Merida struggles with the unpredictable forces of nature, magic and a dark, ancient curse to set things right.
Sounds pretty cool to me. It definitely sounds a little darker than previous Pixar films, but I bet it will be pulled off perfectly. They are known for creating beautiful stories for both children and adults. The film is scheduled to be released on June 15, 2012.
