Brave is Pixar's thirteenth feature film, but it marks two big firsts for the award-winning animation studio. It's Pixar's first feature film driven by a female lead and its first set in an ancient historical period. Against a backdrop of castles, forests, and highlands, Brave follows the fiery Merida as she clashes with the duty of her royal life and embarks on a journey through the rugged landscape of the dark ages of Scotland. At once epic and intimate, the latest Pixar masterpiece weaves a story of magic, danger, and adventure and the fierce bonds of family. Featuring behind-the-scenes interviews with the film's many artists and filmmakers, The Art of Brave showcases the gorgeous concept art that went into the making of this movie, including color scripts, storyboards, character studies, environment art, sculpts, and more. A Foreword by Brenda Chapman and Mark Andrews, the film's directors, and a preface by Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter shed light on the creation of this landmark film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In Love I fell in love with Brave the moment I saw that trailer where Merida absolutely destroyed a bunch of people that couldn't properly shoot an arrow dead centre. I naturally also fell in love with the artbook which is a plethora of art and all around loveliness. If you fell in love with this spunky independent princess and her family like I did, this book will reward you well with concept art and such. Watch out for spoilers if you haven't seen the movie though.
