Exactly. Up, Cars, The Incredibles.....none of these are very good names, but that didn't stop the movies from being awesome.

I think Pixar was right to change the title. I didn't really like the old title I couldn't really take it seriously. For me it was cute but a bit odd. But I really like the name Brave I know a lot of other people don't but then again I probably love the name Brave because I love the word Brave :P x

Sure, the title change is fine. It occurred early enough in the film's development that it shouldn't matter once promotional artwork and trailers appear. Tangled was a little more tricky as there is still some Rapunzel merchandise on the retail shelves.

I'll be honest--Disney changing its title from Rapunzel to Tangled fit perfectly. Brave and the Bow to just Brave? Probably a bad idea...but I could care less about the title and more for the content. :-\

That's a great example SullyMike! I was skeptical of Tangled's name change. But the makers of the movie know what they're doing.

Yeah. The name doesn't matter. The content does. That's why movies were made. ;-p

I was starting to think that Pixar thinks filmgoers are too stupid to understand movie titles that are more than one word long. Then after thinking about it, I realized that the reason The Bear and the Bow was changed to "Brave" is that the former title sounds too much like The Princess and the Frog. You know, The One Thing and the Unrelated Thing format. And of course Pixar doesn't want that. Especially since The Princess and the Frog is recent and was made by the company that owns Pixar.

On the other hand, maybe the one-word title is supposed to mean a lot, like maybe it's Pixar way of saying, "We don't need to say more than one word to get people to see our movies." Like the one word is just there so that the movie can have a title, not because it is necessarily needed...because Pixar movies are so great that they don't need titles for anything other than discussion purposes. Cars, Ratatouille, Wall-E, Up, Newt, Brave. All these projects that weren't sequels, starting in 2006, were one-word titles.

Also, Cars was originally called Route 66, which I'm glad changed, because "Route 66 2" would be a terrible name for a movie.

I think I remember a poster from Scotland saying that they felt Brave better represented Scottish heritage. I don't remember exactly how, but it was a well written post.

Nah, if the first one was originally called Route 66, then they're gonna call the sequel "World Grand Prix" or something. "Route 66 2" doesn't even make sense. A sequel/prequel doesn't have to be named exactly like the original one, does it? At least Monsters University doesn't :wink:

I personally perfer the title Route 66. But finding a sequel name for that, especially one about an international race, is tricky.

Cars isn't the greatest name for a movie :D But Cars 2 flows a lot better than Route 66 2 would have. I actually like the idea for the first Cars to be Route 66, but the whole sequel problems makes me happy it's Cars :D
I'm a proud Pixarteer!

I wanted to use her for my signature, but it'd spoil the movie for anyone else who hasn't seen it...and I've started a trend! Yippee! Or revived a trend...I don't know...
