The Scottish fairy tale Brave is a sweeping, touching, and funny epic that will delight young and old with the perfect, classic blend of Disney and Pixar magic.
We talk to director Mark Andrews and producer Katherine Sarafian about their work together on Disney/Pixar's Brave, all of the research they did, and why the hardest and most important things in animated films are appealing characters and a great story.

Wrapping up our look at the cinematic offerings for the month of June, we take a look at some real heavy hitters with Brave, Moonrise Kingdom, Prometheus, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Snow White and the Huntsman, Rock of Ages, and Piranha 3DD, which will undoubtedly win the box office crown for the month.
