first poster released for pixar movie brave

Epic!

Check out the first poster (above) which has been released for Pixar's Brave, which comes out next June.

We're def intrigued by this one, although there was some behind-the-scenes dramz with this movie.

As a reminder, It WAS going to be the first Pixar project to be directed by a woman, but then director Brenda Chapman was "pushed aside from full directing" and story artist Mark Andrews took over.

Are U excited for Brave? Do U care that the original female director was replaced?

First Pixar Movie To Be Directed By A Woman…NOT Coming Soon!

Filed under: Film FlickersDisney

first female director for pixar let go from project

Not too long ago, we were excited to announce that the next Pixar project would be the first one to be directed by a woman.

It appears that this is no longer the case.

It looked like director Brenda Chapman had infiltrated the Pixar boys' club, but now sources are saying that the Prince of Egypt director is no longer attached to Pixar's upcoming project, Brave, and that she was "pushed aside from full directing a while back."

Looks like story artist Mark Andrews will take over Chapman's position, with the official announcement to come next week.

No word on the specific details regarding Chapman's departure from the project, but needless to say the gender issue is going to come up, given the fact that this would have been the first female directed Pixar project AND that Chapman was replaced with a male director who has very limited directing experience.

What do U think about this announcement? Do U think gender was an influence here?

First Pixar Movie To Be Directed By A Woman…Coming Soon!

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?
