BRAVE

BRENDA CHAPMAN (Director/Story by/Screenplay by) joined Pixar Animation Studios in September 2003 as a senior story artist on the Academy Award®-nominated feature film "Cars.” Upon completing her work on "Cars,” Chapman stepped into the position of director after conceiving the unique story, characters and world for Disney Pixar's upcoming feature "Brave.” An epic adventure set in the mythical Highlands of Scotland "Brave” hits theaters on June 22, 2012.

Born and raised in Illinois, Chapman earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). She went on to start her story and directing career at Walt Disney Feature Animation Studios where she worked as a story artist on a number of Disney's most beloved animated films including "The Little Mermaid,” "The Rescuers Down Under,” "Beauty and the Beast,” "The Hunchback of Notre Dame” and "Fantasia/2000.” Chapman was the story supervisor on "The Lion King,” which ultimately became the highest-grossing traditionally animated film of all time.

After nearly eight years at Disney, Chapman left to help launch a new animation studio – DreamWorks Animation Studios. At DreamWorks she directed the studio's 1998 release "The Prince of Egypt,” which marked the first time a woman directed an animated feature film for a major Hollywood studio.

Prior to joining Pixar, Chapman worked as a directing and story consultant on various projects in development at DreamWorks, Universal Studios and Sony Animation.
