** Averted for the most part, with the exception of [[Creator/PixarRegulars John Ratzenberger]], of course. American Reese Witherspoon was also originally going to voice Merida, before she was replaced with Kelly Macdonald.
** Played with in the case of Emma Thompson, Elinor's voice actress--she's technically a citizen of England, but she's got Scottish ancestry through her mother's side of the family and has spent part of her life in Scotland. She does however speak with an English accent naturally, and this is one of many projects she's faked a Scottish accent for.

* OrphanedReference: Merida was originally supposed to end up with Young MacGuffin, hence his name being a reference to the plot device. In the final film, his name no longer has any meaning.

* TalkingToHimself: Kevin [=McKidd=] voices both Lord [=MacGuffin=] and Young [=MacGuffin=]. The brogue he uses for them is a riff on his native Doric accent.

Added DiffLines:

* BillingDisplacement: In an interesting example that's both intuitive and counterintuitive, Fergus is second billed and Elinor third, despite Elinor being the film's secondary protagonist. [[spoiler:However, since Elinor spends much of the film as a bear, it's probably fair to say that Emma Thompson has less of a speaking part than Billy Connolly.]] In a straighter example, the Witch is billed fourth despite having only two scenes, beating out the three lords.

** Julie Walters also dons a Scottish accent as the Witch. Amusingly enough the next time she did this would [[{{Film/Paddington}} also involve a bear]].



** The film in general gets this; as revealed in a number of the home release featurettes, although every film Pixar (and any studio for that matter) makes always has sequences that get dropped, Brave specifically has an immense amount of scrapped and altered scenes that just didn't make the final cut, made harsher in that a lot of the sequences were nearly finished.
** The directors commentary reveals numerous scenes and ways the film could have gone but they decided not to do for various reasons. The main change was that there originally would have had snow for two thirds of the film. They changed this due to the fact they felt it would ruin the Scottish Landscape.

** EndlessWinter: According to the DVD Commentary, the film was going to do this as an addition to [[spoiler:Merida and Mor'du's bear curse]], but in the end chose not to.
** Much of the film was originally to be set during the winter, with snow being the big technical challenge for the film but when Brenda Chapman left the project, so did the weather.
