Pixar selects first female director to do "Brave", due out in 2012
#1
[indent]Pixar's first film to feature a female lead will also be its first film directed by a woman. Mill Valley's Brenda Chapman will write and direct Brave, scheduled for release in June 2012.

An original story by Chapman, Brave is a 3-D fairy tale in the tradition of The Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen. Set in Scotland, the story revolves around feisty young Merida, a princess by birth who longs instead to be a famous archer. Voice talents include Reese Witherspoon, Julie Walters, Emma Thompson and Billy Connolly.

Despite its otherwise sterling reputation, Pixar has taken some flack over the years for not featuring a female lead character. [/indent]
