The new Disney movie Brave, brings heart back to Pixar.
In 2011, Pixar released Cars 2, which left a sour taste in audience's mouths.
Although it did have a bigger opening than the original ($66.1 million), Cars 2 wasn't quit the sequel most hoped for.
Now, in 2012, the animation giant has its act together with the release of its 13th movie.
Brave is about a princess in Scotland, Merida (Kelly Macdonald), who put her family and her father's kingdom in danger.
Even though she's been raised in the royal family, all she wants is to become an archer.
As dangers continue to surround the royal family, Merida and her mother Elinor (Emma Thompson) start to clash over her future.
The young princess goes on a mission to fend off evil forces, and restore peace to the family kingdom.
Writer and short-film director Mark Andrews is one of the men responsible for Brave.
He also helped write the new Disney flop John Carter, that actually got the chairman of Disney fired.
But now, he's doing a more promising flick that will win the box-office this weekend.
Look for Brave to earn around $55 million in its opening weekend.
With lots of positive feedback already from viewers, this movie is brave enough to get Pixar back in the hot seat.
Brave is rated PG for some scary action and rude humor.
Runtime: 1 hour and 40 minutes.
