Appearing in theaters all across the globe over the next few months, Brave is undoubtedly Pixar’s most ambitious project yet. The story of fiercely free-spirited Scottish archer Merida, the animated extravaganza will close out the 66th Edinburgh International Film Festival on 30 June, before being released in British cinemas on 3 August. Many theatres will also be showcasing Brave in dazzling Disney Digital 3D™.
