Disney Threatens Legal Action Against Movie Studio for Releasing Knockoff Film "Braver"

Disney is threatening legal action against British production company Brightspark, who they allege were attempting to confuse consumers by releasing a film called Braver, with similar title and packaging to the Disney/Pixar hit Brave

The film itself is actually older than Brave - it was released in 2005, but back then it was called Fairy Tale Christmas. Only recently was it re-released and repackaged to resemble the Disney film. The company also has a history of mimicking Disney films - some of their other titles are Tangled Up, The Frog Princess, and Little Cars, all films with similar titles to but no plot resemblence to Disney films.

In a statement, Brightspark denied any wrongdoing, saying, "Braver is an item for families on a budget and I very much doubt that anyone would confuse our production with the wonderful work of Disney. We are currently talking to Disney to find a mutually acceptable resolution."
