Enter the World of 'Brave' Through Disney's Exclusive Scotland TourMelissa Molina |
Disney is gearing up to release 'Brave' in theaters this June. The movie, which is basically Pixar's rendition of an arrow-slinging Katniss from 'The Hunger Games,' is set in the lush lands of Scotland, a place all of us should visit really soon. Why's that? Because Disney is offering to bring you on a magical tour across the great land.
Adventures by Disney is giving you the chance to embark on red-haired Merida's courageous journey throughout her homeland in "Scotland: A Brave Adventure." You'll be able to check out plenty of landmarks including Dunnottar Castle, Glamis Castle and even travel over to other locations that served as inspiration for 'Brave.'
'Brave' centers on Merida (Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). 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 (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (Julie Walters) 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.
The nine-day, eight-night quest through Edinburgh, the Isle of Skye, the Isle of Lewis, and Inverness allows families to experience this journey first-hand through the history, culture, nature, and legends of Scotland that inspired Disney and Pixar's story of bravery.
'Brave' comes out in theaters everywhere on June 22, 2012, presented in both 2D and 3D.
