I can only hope it is just speculation and a trademark error like the article suggests. The "Rapunzel" vs "Tangled" debate was understandable at best but it's ridiculous to change a title that's already bland into an even blander one.

could "Brave" be related to that boy and his dinosaur project?

I actually like "Brave" better. Heck, if it's what the artists at Pixar have been calling it in-house all along, then I'm all for it.

And robster, no it isn't anything to do with the boy and his dinosaur thing. On the TAG blog there have people saying "Brave" in reference to Bear and the Bow for quite a while. It's just what the artist at Pixar call it. Instead of saying "Bear and the Bow" every time they mention the movie, they just say "Brave." Much like at Dreamworks, no one is going to say "How to Train Your Dragon" every time, they just say "Dragons" instead. Or "Frog" for Princess and the Frog.

Except "Brave", in my opinion, actually makes a good title itself.

If you ask me, Brave is an even worse title than Tangled. Seriously. I just don't get it. It's not the type of adjective that makes a good one-word title. The Bear and the Bow has such an adventure-y, fantasy-y kind of sound to it, and Brave just sounds silly, IMO.

It's funny, but I actually like "Brave" (and I hated "Tangled"). Though The Bear and the Bow sounds way more appealing to me personally, Brave could be a good name for the film (it does seem to focus on the princess' bravery).

Besides, I think Pixar believes the one-name title is a good marketing tactic. People can remember one word. :lol:

I like Brave as well. Whenever I read The Bear and the Bow I automatically think Brother Bear.

That's what I thought too lol

Why not go with "The Bear" or something like that? Why Brave? It really does sound silly. I'm also really really hating this one-word title trend. It just seems lazy in a way.

Well being Scottish and living in Scotland I can guarantee you that if you mention "brave" in front of a patriotic Scottish citizen there are a few possible responses:

a - Braveheart, William Wallace
b - Scotland the Brave, the not quite but almost national anthem

Seriously.....Brave? make it sound either that involves Mel Gibson or a Toaster.... :P

The Bear and the Bow though sounds nothing girly at all in the title....what...is the bow with polka dots? :P




Hopefully they don't add heart to the end of it...or involve Mel Gibson :P

John Lasseter said he always wanted to make a princess movie (Michael Eisner even thought once of giving him The Snow Queen), so I wonder if he or the directors of the film really wanted the title change, because this was like his chance to make a fairy tale, and I would think he would want the title to match.

The only reason I'm not more wondering and upset about the change is because Pixar does seem to like titles like this. But since Lasseter wanted a fairy tale, and Disney's marketing is trying to stay away from fairy tales, I wonder if this was his and Pixar's decision...or Disney marketing's decision.

Disney marketing is taking over. This is terrible.

If you ask me, this makes pixar seem really Tangled up in disney marketing.

I don't know you guys. I'm not so sure this one is marketing interference. I mean, it very well COULD be, and I'm not saying that the chances aren't good. BUT, with the fact that "Brave" is what the artists at Pixar have been calling the movie all along... I could understand this being more of at least a mutual decision.

Besides. The reason we were all so upset about "Tangled" was because the title "Rapunzel" has classic connotations with it. The original story is called Rapunzel. But if I'm not mistaken, "The Bear and the Bow" is an original story by Pixar. Not an already existing one. So I don't think we should have nearly as much of an issue with this one.

Yeah, what's with one word titles? They sound so uninspiring and feels like no work was put into changing them. Just stick with the original title, it sounds better (and frankly less elementary; unless their target audience is ages 5-10).
