The new Disney/Pixar flick, “Brave” premiered last night at the newly-christened and grand opening of the Dolby Theatre (formerly the Kodak Theatre), in downtown Los Angeles with a big “to do.” The star-studded event included Scottish bands, food, beer and appearances of the voice talents in the movie including Craig Ferguson, Kelly Macdonald and Kevin McKidd.

According to Steve Pond for The Wrap, “Brave” will be a chance to recover from the “disappointing” returns from last year’s “Cars 2.” That movie “only” grossed more than $550 million worldwide, but “was nonetheless seen as something of a disappointment for the groundbreaking Pixar, which had enjoyed 11 consecutive critical and commercial hits and four straight Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature.”

Set in the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland, “Brave” follows the heroic journey of Merida, a skilled archer and headstrong daughter. Determined to change her fate, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin, surly Lord Macintosh, and cantankerous Lord Dingwall, unleashing chaos in the kingdom. When she turns to an eccentric witch, Miranda is granted an ill-fated wish and the ensuing peril forces her to harness all of her resources—including her mischievous triplet brothers—to undo a beastly curse and discover the meaning of true bravery.

“Brave” is Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and opens on June 22, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

I will post my review of the movie this weekend.
