Merida, the star of Pixar's Brave, is a new kind of Disney princess and the first heroine to star in a Pixar film. She's independent, strong-willed, and completely uninterested in finding a prince charming. When her mother attempts to follow tradition and marry her off, Merida rebels and challenges societal norms. While her strong will brings about challenges, throughout the film Merida sticks to her instincts and does what she needs to do in order to fix her mistakes. We think that makes her pretty brave. On a recent press trip to Scotland, we sat down with the stars behind the movie, like Kelly Macdonald and Kevin McKidd, as well as the director and producers, including John Lasseter, chief creative officer of Pixar. We asked them who is the bravest person they know in real life, and they all gave touching, heartfelt answers. From a Navy SEAL to a wife and mother, find out whom the people behind Brave admire.
