The wild-haired, Scottish princess Merida raged the movies in 2012’s Brave to turn into a humble accomplishment by Pixar principles (it acquired $237 million locally, per The Numbers).

At this moment, the greatest barricade is that Pixar’s coming record of movies focuses on new thoughts over continuations. In a time when Hollywood is progressively depending on set up IP for hits, Pixar’s obligation to carrying unique plans to the big screen is splendid, but at the same time it’s disappointing for anybody wanting to see a followup to Brave, Inside Out, or Up sooner rather than later.
In a 2016 meeting with Entertainment Weekly, Pixar president Jim Morris uncovered that Toy Story 4 was the keep going spin-off Pixar had on its agenda until further notice, and that is generally because of the studio’s steady of movie producers investigating new undertakings.
Do Brave Directors have thought for a continuation?
Pixar hasn’t made a state mysterious of its attitude toward spin-offs in general.
“Most studios bounce on doing a continuation when they have a fruitful movie, however, our plan of action is a producer model, and we don’t make a spin-off except if the overseer of the first film has a thought that they like and will go ahead on,” Morris disclosed to EW.
On account of Brave, that makes the opportunity of a continuation happening much more difficult, in light of the fact that actually, the film had two directors.
For a very long time, Brenda Chapman dealt with Brave at Pixar before she was terminated over “creative differences” and displaced by Mark Andrews, as announced by the Los Angeles Times. From that point forward, Andrews has additionally left Pixar and is presently chipping away at The Bad Guys for DreamWorks Animation.
With neither one of the directors still at the studio, Merida’s story would need to be given over to another person completely, or Pixar would have to charm either Chapman or Andrews back. Either choice would require some investment, and given the measure of work that goes into animated highlights, it would, in any case, be a long time before Brave 2 really hit screens.
Right now, both Chapman and Andrews have all the earmarks of being zeroing in on different tasks, however, in 2013, Chapman did tell The Scotsman he would be down for a Brave continuation if the correct thought tags along.
“On the off chance that we got the correct story it would be fun — to get the pack back together once more, add a couple of all the more new characters and discover what other Scottish gifts are out there that should do an animated fun,” he said. “I couldn’t say whether there will be another. We never make a film at Pixar to have a continuation.”

She was getting her Scottish pronunciation down, she was buckling down and it was sounding incredible however as we were proceeding with the film she had different motion pictures arranging, so tragically we couldn’t proceed with her and needed to get a replacement.”
Instead, in 2011 it was uncovered that Merida was to be voiced by Scottish entertainer Kelly Macdonald. In 2017, during a press trip for Illumination’s Sing, Witherspoon referenced that she needed to leave the film because of her inability to dominate a Scottish connection.
