Formerly known as the Kodak Theatre and home of the Academy Awards, the Hollywood theatre was re-branded Dolby Theatre and to mark the change over, Hollywood will be pulling all the stops with the Hollywood premiere of a Disney•Pixar's BRAVE June 18. 2012. The red-carpet event will be part of a special presentation in association with Film Independent’s 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival. Audiences will be treated to the Disney•Pixar film featuring the first female character in Dolby 3D, a state-of-the-art imaging solution providing audiences with a superior 3D experience.
The “Brave” world premiere is also sponsored by VisitScotland, Scotland's national tourism organization. BRAVE is set in the ancient Scottish Highlands with Merida, the impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson) determined to break the woman's role in the ancient kingdom through her skilled archery.
With its grand opening, the Dolby Theatre is set to be a showcase for Dolby innovation, including Dolby Atmos, Dolby 3D and other new technologies for years to come.
More about BRAVE:
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 humor. Opens on June 22, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
