Pixar will have a female star for the first time in BRAVE

Sigh. We have just under a year to wait (6/22/12). We saw a teeny bit of a teaser when I was in LA and I can't wait to see and hear more about Merida. My maternal grandmother was born in Scotland, so this story touches my heart in more ways than one. ...
