Disney-Pixar's "Brave" hits theaters Friday, and The Christian Post spoke with Katherine Sarafian, the film's lead producer, about faith, the path of finding out who one really is, and her decision to do away with princes.
"Faith can't not play a role in your life. I looked a lot at my father, a priest in the Armenian church, who was not great at managing people. He was a heart-based leader, while my mom was a businesswoman. I thought I was more like my mom, more of the business-style leader," Sarafian explained.
"Working on 'Brave' was incredibly hard, but it was interesting to discover how much more of my father I am than my mother. It's the compassionate leaders I try to emulate; I don't always get it right, but I looked to my dad for that when he was here. Now that he's gone, it's more of 'What would dad do?' How would he treat this problem?" she continued.
"Brave" tells the story of a young woman named Merida, who defies the traditions of her country and sets out to make her own way, causing problems and mayhem along the way. One thing that differentiates "Brave" from the traditional Disney story is that there are few princes, and none play a central role in the story.
