At this weekend’s D23 (essentially Disney’s Comic-Con), I got to speak with producer Katherine Sarafian and director Mark Andrews about Pixar’s next movie, Brave. If you’re not aware, Brave is Pixar’s first film with a female protagonist. During the interview, I asked them why has it taken so long for that to happen, what is the film about, and are they already thinking about the Easter Eggs. They promise there will be a few of them, but you’ll have to look very close. Hit the jump to watch.
Finally, I’m going to be posting a lot more video interviews from D23, so make sure to keep checking back.
