You know what I hate? When a commercial for the upcoming Disney/Pixar movie Brave comes on the television. It’s not because it doesn’t look totally awesome and amazing. It’s not because it doesn’t look gorgeous and beautiful. It’s not because it stars the very first female Pixar protagonist ever. It’s because as soon as we see an ad the questions start…
Her (my 6-year-old daughter): “Mommy, when does Brave come out.”
Me: “It comes out June 22nd”
Her: “When is June 22nd”
Me: “After June 21st.”
Her: “No, I mean, how soon is June 22nd.”
Me: “It’s in like three months.”
Her: “How many days is that?” (or sometimes she says hours or even minutes!)
Me: “Like 90 or so.”
Her: “What! I can’t wait that long. I wanna see Brave now!”
Sometimes she mixes it up and she’ll ask what the red headed girl’s name is (“it’s Merida”), or where do they live (“Scotland”), or what happens in the movie (“you’ll have to wait to find out.”) Needless to say, she has oodles and oodles of questions about Brave. And you know what, if you are reading this, I bet you do too.
Well, you, my curious daughter, and I are all in luck. Next week I’ll be jetting off to San Francisco (okay, I live here so there actually won’t be any jets involved), to head over the Bay Bridge to the Disney Pixar Studios in Emeryville where a group of us bloggers will meet with the Pixar animators, see some of the work in progress on the film, and get to ask a whole bunch of questions about Brave and the short that will be shown with it called La Luna.
So this is where you come in. Do you have any questions for the Pixar team? Let us know right here in the comments section by April 3rd and we’ll see if we can get some answers!
