Brave:

Brave is Pixar's 13th film, and will feature their first female star. Voice cast, setting, concept art, and story are below.

Despite having been replaced as director with someone else, Brendan Chapman will still get co-directing credit. I think that's really heart-warming on the part of Pixar, and shows that no ill intent was made on her leaving! Thank you Pixar.

I'm glad that they recast Reese Witherspoon with Kelly Mac Donald. Witherspoon is overexposed and has done a lot of crap lately (How Do You Know, Rendition, Four Christmases). Mac Donald deserves to be the lead in a movie.

Oh my God the Scottish folk music is a perfect fit for Pixar, with its relaxing sound that reminds you of the country! :D Great choice.

Just as long as this doesn't become another tedious You Go Girl plot and they actually give the princess good lines, this will be awesome.

Sounds right about in-line with what happened for Ratatouille when they brought in Brad Bird. They still gave the original director story and co-direction credit.

Man, do I love Pixar.

Every time I hear about a new Pixar movie, I keep worrying "Oh no, I hope it doesn't jump the shark."

And then it ends up not jumping the shark.
Hate to rain on your parade Jawa. But it really hasnt crossed anyone's mind that they are doing that for the "WE ARE TOTALLY NOT SEXIST BRO!" value?

They did it for Ratatouille, true, but dont go "OH HOW HEARTWARMING" just yet.

I do think they make great movies and they may have thought Brenda's approach wasnt what they were looking for, and may have had the movies best interest in mind when they replaced her.

Oh my God, I hate Pixar. And Dreamworks alike. Their specific brand of fusing American HURRHRR LOOK HOW IRONICALLY UGLY AND UNCUTE I AM IT'S SO FUNNY, I HAVE TINY EYES art style we seem to have adopted since we decided big Mickey Mouse eyes weren't good enough for us, and stunning CG. Some of their works, they're okay, if at least to show what's possible with CG. When they made the Incredibles and Cars, I wanted to smack somebody with a purse. God, I'm really asking for it at the hands of Western animation fans. Sorry... I should shut up about my tastes and preferences sometimes. Don't mind me.

This however... this actually looks pretty cool. This actually looks very cool. I'm actually, ...excited about this. Really excited about this. Like, possibly the most I've ever been excited for a CG movie aside from How To Train Your Dragon. Something is wrong with me, have I come down with a sickness? Somebody check my temperature.

I'll take tiny eyes over big eyes any day. Big eyes are usually only on things that live in the dark and are less of a liability overall.

Then again I play video games, where the big eye-tinytononexistent nose art style is dominant...and I tire of that art style.

It's back.
I have been a big Pixar fan since Toy Story, the very first animated feature film I ever watched. Maybe that affected my opinion on western animation.

I don't know what you're getting at exactly. This sounds like a miscommunication. If you're saying "yeah, it's not just the Mickey Mouse days that Disney characters has big eyes/anime-esque aesthetic", yeah, I agree, animation like Lilo and Stitch also have very big eyes, not just the very beginning of Disney like Mickey Mouse. But the whole small eyes/ironically-uncute aesthetic does seem to have become an American staple and stereotype, even if it didn't start out that way. Though it doesn't sound like you're saying that, since you said "since forever", which makes it claim like you're saying that old Disney had big eyes, which is merely agreeing with what I said instead of disagreeing. And given the tone/writing form, sounds like a miscommunication. The common one of where a person gets the opposite of what one means out of their text.

Anyway, don't pay attention to that. It will only derail the topic. Which is not my intention. I was only just stating my personal opinion. This is a topic about Brave.

Okay then. It seems we just have drastically different ideas of what we consider to be big eyes.

Okay, now I'm definitely confused. And still thinking there is a miscommunication going on.
