Disney Pixar’s forthcoming 3D movie, ‘Brave’ is sending ripples of interest across the community of animation addicts, much before its scheduled release in the middle of 2012.
A talent-rich pool of voice-artists has been assembled to enliven various characters.
To the delight of all those, who have admired Kevin McKidd’s flawless act in the Journeyman episodes, he will be a part of this core group, that also features Kelly Macdonald, Julie Walters, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Robbie Coltrane and Craig Ferguson.
Kevin has been entrusted with the role of the uproarious Lord named MacGuffin. With several acclaimed voice-acts to his name, he is expected to render a truly tantalizing performance.
Disney Pixar’s brainchild ‘Brave’ is yet another attempt to enchant the audience with a vivid and gripping portrayal of a story, no less than a timeless fable.
At the centre of the events will be Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) who defies the current state of affairs and confronts the deadliest of beasts, to chalk out the destiny she deserves.
Merida, the rebellious daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor, is an archer beyond comparison.
To have her own say in life, she disregards a centuries-old custom of her land, which is holy to Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd).
Her unruly attitude leads to an atmosphere of utter disorder. To make things right, she meets a wise woman, but instead of diminishing, her woes multiply further.
From here onwards, initiates her arduous journey towards the realization of true meaning of courage.
Her actions have led to a beastly curse and now it’s up to her, to put the prevailing disorder to rest.
A brief look at the plot, tells a lot about the superlative imagination working behind Brave.
If coupled with an interesting screenplay, the movie can turn out to be a bell ringer at the cash register!
