Pixar's 13th movie was the first to be directed by a woman - Brenda Chapman, whose story it is - produced by a woman (Katherine Sarafian), not to mention the first Pixar film to feature a strong, courageous and capable female protagonist, in the captivating, chaotic princess Merida, voiced by Kelly Mcdonald. A rousing, fun, fairy tale adventure, BRAVE is of course packed with vintage Pixar set-pieces, cameos and one-liners; but ultimately it stands as a memorable benchmark in the studios history, where women filmmakers spearheaded the delivery of a first-class film about female empowerment.
