Raise your hand if you think Pixar’s Brave is an under-appreciated effort in the animation studios’ oeuvre! It was a bit of a departure for the folks up in Emeryville, but just because the story is different, doesn’t mean it’s any less Pixar. At its… Read More »Behind the Scenes: Pixar’s Mother & Daughter Film – Brave
