With Pixar’s Brave opening this weekend, Disney recently held a press junket in Scotland where I got to interview some of the cast and filmmakers.  The film centers on Princess Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald), a young girl who accidentally sets loose an evil curse when she wishes for the freedom to escape her restrictive life.  But the big news about Brave is that it’s Pixar’s first film with a female protagonist and their first fairy tale.  I imagine in won’t be their last.  Brave also features the voices of Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson, Robbie Coltrane, and Julie Walters.  For more on Brave, here’s all our previous coverage and four clips.

During my interview with Kelly Macdonald, we talked about how the film changed over the course of the its development, what surprised her about the recording process, her reaction to the finished film, what people should do if they visit Scotland, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, here’s my interviews with director Mark Andrews and producer Katherine Sarafian, Kevin McKidd and John Lasseter.

    I thought she would be more attractive, cute with red hair like her character. Love Scottish accents though.
