Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In "Brave," a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald, "Boardwalk Empire") confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly, The Last Samurai) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson, Sense and Sensibility). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd, "Grey's Anatomy"), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson, Saving Grace) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone). Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters, Billy Elliot) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late.
