Pixar films are notorious for containing nods, easter eggs and even revealing future characters for future Pixar films that haven’t been released yet. I was actually thinking about this the other week, how are they going to put the Pizza Planet Truck in the middle of Scotland set all those years ago?
Well apparently it will be there, confirmed by director Mark Andrews. Check out the quote below and I’ve also included some Pixar easter eggs from some of Pixar’s films.
Mark Andrew Interview (Via Bleeding Cool)
Yes, everything is in here. Everything. All of the typical things, those little insider jokes are all in the movie. You’ve got hours and hours hours with the Blu-ray to look for them. There it is! But it’s right there, yeah.
John Ratzenberger’s Scottish accent is good, it’s not bad. He had a couple of goes at it, but he got there. he’s one of the guards in the background. His voice is in there but if you can’t pick him out we’ve done our job and nailed it.
Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of 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 (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of 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.
