The news that Pixar are working on a Scottish movie has been kicking around for a few weeks. Cannot think how I missed it. Here is the press release from Disney.
Rugged and mythic Scotlandis the setting for Pixar's action-adventure "The Bear and the Bow." The impetuous, tangle-haired Merida, though a daughter of royalty, would prefer to make her mark as a great archer. A clash of wills with her mother compels Meridato make a reckless choice, which unleashes unintended peril on her father's kingdom and her mother's life. Meridastruggles with the unpredictable forces of nature, magic and a dark, ancient curse to set things right. Director Brenda Chapman("The Prince of Egypt," "The Lion King") and the storytelling wizards of Pixar conjure humor, fantasy and excitement in this rich Highland tale.
