Urk. I'm all in favour of Pixar (or anyone) doing strong female characters, but as a Scot, I think that movie's going to be entirely unwatchable for me.

I have a fairly high tolerance for Scottish stereotypes and dodgy accents, so I guess I'll cope. I think it's curious the relative prominence that Scots accents have in big animated movies though: Shrek, How To Train Your Dragon, and now Brave. No idea why.

I think Shrek was just that they genuinely wanted Robbie Coltraine's awesome talent, because there's no Scottish stereotyping in the piece as a whole AFAICS. Then I suspect for Brave, they went, "Robbie Coltrane - he's Scottish, right? Hey, look, a culture we can exoticise without being accused of racism!" I haven't seen How to Train Your Dragon, so I can't comment on that one.

How to Train Your Dragon is basically Vikings with Scottish accents. And dragons, obviously.
