Consider this yet ANOTHER reason why Pixar is amazing!

After releasing twelve animated films, the studio has brought on a female director for the first time, and the project looks awesome.

Brenda Chapman is both directing AND writing Pixar's thirteenth film, Brave, which is slated for release on June 15, 2012.

Here's a description of the film from Disney press release:

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.

The voice cast includes Reese Witherspoon, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, and Julie Walters.

We're excited!

Will U go see the first female-directed Pixar film?

    what does it matter if it's a woman? A directors a director, god what century do we live in again? As long as it's good I couldn't give a rats arse.

    "Tangle-haired"…? Why did they have to use that term with Disney Tangled coming out in like 2 months? It's like they can't think.

    This is also going to be the first official Disney Princess animated by Pixar.

    As a woman I still don't care that this is the first Pixar has their first woman director. Someone's sex should not matter. Who cares if they are male, female, black, white, Asian, gay, or straight? In America none of that should matter now.
