Meet the Cast of Disney-Pixar’s ‘Brave’
July 17, 2012 by Walt Disney Philippines
From a trio of wee mischievous brothers to an elegant—if somewhat uptight—queen, not to mention its lot of quirky lords, Disney/Pixar’s new 3D adventure “Brave” features a cast of wildly diverse characters and a host of talented pros who lend them their voices.
MERIDA (Voice of Kelly Macdonald). Passionate and fiery, Merida is a headstrong teenager of royal upbringing who is struggling to take control of her own destiny. She feels most at home in the outdoors honing her impressive athletic skills as an archer and swordfighter, and racing across the magnificent Highland countryside with her faithful horse, Angus. With a spirit as vibrant as her untamed hair, Merida also has a softness of heart, especially when it comes to her wee triplet brothers.
ANGUS. Black as night with ivory muzzle and fetlocks, Angus is Merida’s powerful Clydesdale and her most trusted confidant.
QUEEN ELINOR (Voice of Emma Thompson). A vision of grace, wisdom and strength of character, Queen Elinor is fiercely dedicated to the well being of her family and kingdom. As the measured, diplomatic counterpoint to her more impulsive husband, King Fergus, Elinor carries the weight of the kingdom on her shoulders.
KING FERGUS (Voice of Billy Connolly). Protector of his kingdom and family, King Fergus is a heroic warrior with a majestic bear cape, broad sword and a knobby peg leg – the result of his much-regaled skirmish with the demon bear Mor’du.
THE TRIPLETS. Identical triplets Harris, Hubert and Hamish are adorable, redheaded, and always ready to stir up a bit of mischief, especially if sweets are at stake.
THE LORDS. The three lords of the kingdom – Dingwall, Macintosh and MacGuffin – are the unruly, overzealous leaders of their respective clans. Though once warring factions, they have been united under the sword of King Fergus and held together by the diplomacy and political savvy of Queen Elinor.
LORD MACGUFFIN (Voice of Kevin McKidd). Strapping Lord MacGuffin is a man of few words, though his deep voice resounds across the land demanding respect.
YOUNG MACGUFFIN (Also voiced by Kevin McKidd). Speaking an uncommon Scottish dialect that is incomprehensible to most, Young MacGuffin is a shy lad of large proportions.
LORD DINGWALL (Voice of Robbie Coltrane). Grumpy and quick-tempered, the scrappy Lord Dingwall doesn’t let being height-challenged get in the way of solving his problems with fisticuffs.
WEE DINGWALL. Gangly, guileless and often lost in his own head, Wee Dingwall is the awkward son of Lord Dingwall.
LORD MACINTOSH (Voice of Craig Ferguson). The wiry, indignant and off-kilter leader of his clan, Lord Macintosh is always a heartbeat away from hysterics.
YOUNG MACINTOSH. Young Macintosh knows he has it all – athletic physique, undeniable charm and long flowing locks that leave the lasses swooning in his wake.
Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International, “Brave” takes aim at Philippine theaters on August 01, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
