Director of Pixar’s Brave Speaks About Potential Sequel

World Premiere Of Disney Pixar's "Brave" - Red CarpetThere’s been a period of silence following Brave’s win at the Academy Awards, but now director Mark Andrews is talking about the prospects of a sequel. They’re pretty good, winning the Oscar certainly helped.

Andrews was in Scotland working with students on a film project when he was interviewed by the Scotsman.

On the Oscars, Andrews said he was not expecting to win.

“Going up to get the Oscar was probably one of the scariest things I have ever done. I thought Wreck-It Ralph was going to win so when they said it was Brave I thought ‘Oh no!’.”

“It is not a very friendly audience. You have all the actors, who are all charming and beautiful people individually, but they don’t want to be at the Oscars either. They are just staring at you.”

On inside jokes that only the Scottish would get:

“The greatest thing about showing the film in Scotland was all the inside jokes that we have in there that only the Scots would get. They got it all. If you had had a laugh track in there, it would’ve been going from beginning to end, while American audiences got about half.”

Andrews stated that he is currently working on another original movie for Pixar, which he is writing and directing. But that if they can find the right story, Pixar is interested in doing a sequel to Brave. So that’s good news for all your Merida fans. Andrew also stated he’d like to add new characters and get more famous Scottish voices into the mix.

What would you like to see in a sequel to Brave?

    I am not sure how I feel about this. I would much rather they do something like what was done with Tangled, placing a short before latest motion picture and then combine the short with either the same motion picture later on DVD or with a Special Edition DVD. I feel that the sequel would kill Brave in the long run.

  2. J says:

    I hope they don’t do a sequel. As a one off it was a nice story and a good film. I have no interest in seeing a Brave Sequel, Prequel or Spin-Off.

  3. Dominique Mol says:

    No, please stop with the sequels !
    Most of them don’t live up to the originals with a few exceptions.
    But in it’s core I keep siding with Walt Disney; You can’t top pigs with pigs.


    unless it’s a toy named Woody, Buzz or Mr Potato Head ;)
    ..
    and I am secretly curious about the Monsters en Co prequal

    I’d bust my tail to get Sean Connery and Katharine Zeta Jones in the vocal lineup. Connery says he’s retired but it would be nice to see his feature film career both begin and end tied to Disney — from Darby O’Gill to Brave II.

  6. I would like to see Merida finding her equal in the sequel like she wanted to find her own love in her own time in the first Brave movie.

  7. Nikole says:

    I’m not sure if the makers have noticed this, but there are quite a bit of people who would really love to see this. People who have combined this movie with three others (Tangled, How to Train Your Dragon, and Rise of the Guardians) I know it may sound a bit far fetched, but if they were to make a cross-over movie with those four movies they would instantly have a huge number of teen fans. Just look up ‘Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons’ and see how many people love the concept of it! Although, if what happens with most sequels such as not as much work is put into the story or animation Then I don’t think the Brave sequel (if made) would be very liked.

    You guys are silly.

    Pixar has made a lot of money off the Cars sequel, enough to pay for the third movie from above the world of Cars.

    Toy Story has been wildly successful, all three films, so much so that they are considering number four. It doesn’t matter what a few people want, it matters what the market can bear, and it can bear anything Pixar throws at it.

    Sequels have grown their audience far more than lost it.

    I would love to see a sequel to Brave. I just did a search today to see if one was in the works already and am diappointed to find that it is not. My two boys love the movie (9 and 6 years old) and so do their two female cousins. Strong female characters and men who are loyal and dedicated to their families are great for children to see.

    well like meridas brothers r older like 20 and their father is dieing then they learn that their could only be one for the thrown so they must compete and merida is way older

  11. DSch says:

    The scenario I see as a sequel: Merida must travel outside of her kingdom (either a battle, or some other plot device) and we find out that one of the clans has a different “first born” than who they presented… son or daughter… who is similarly a free-spirit who does not adhere to the kingdom traditions. They team up to resolve the issue at hand. In the end, she either ends up with a love interest or a true friend.

  12. Mi says:

    I and EVERYOTHER Disney & Brave fan would LOVE to experience a sequel, hopefully in which there is much more adventure for Merdia and finally a love in which Merida finds for herself.

  13. timmy says:

    Everyone loves brave and a sequel would be an amazing experience.Personally its my favorite disney movie and pixar.I did not care for finding nemo,wall-e and up. I did love brave though.come pixar make a sequel!

  14. Kim Regina says:

    Brave was an excellent movie. Of course we want to see who “Merida” ends up with.
    They movie has not ended yet. Keep going Pixar!!

  15. Amanda says:

    I would love to see a sequel to Brave. I love this movie. And there are some creative minds at Disney. They could take it any direction they want. I think it’d be awesome. Who knows.

  16. Jordan Highfield says:

    i hope they make the sequel about her falling in love that’s about the only thing that’s missing is he prince charming :P

    but if they don’t thats cool too i don’t really disapprove of sequels Aladdin has one of the best sequels to date just saying :D

    Disney usually doesn’t kill sequels just live action movies it tends to be a little over done by the actors
