Brave Australian premiere in Sydney
The Sydney Film Festival is well on it’s way and tonight was the night of the Australian premiere of Brave, Disney/Pixar’s latest animated film.
Scottish comedian, actor, musician and actor Billy Connolly walked the red at Event Cinemas, George Street in Sydney together. I didn’t spot too many local celebs on the red carpet tonight unfortunately. I did spot Sophie Lowe who kindly posed for a photo for me.

Set in the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland, Disney Pixar’s Brave follows the heroic journey of Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to change her fate, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and 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), unleashing chaos in the kingdom. When she turns to an eccentric Witch (voice of Julie Walters), she is granted an ill-fated wish, and the ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her resources – including her mischievous triplet brothers – to undo a beastly curse and discover the meaning of true bravery. Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, Brave is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and signature Pixar humour.
