'Brave' New Pixar Film? [UPDATED]

Briefly: Upcoming Pixar has brought a very interesting bit of info to my (and the rest of the world's) attention. In a recent interview with, Pete Docter has made a very intriguing statement:

CS: You’ve probably been spending three or four years on this movie yourself, so do you deal with a lot of the other Pixar stuff going on in that time as well or are you able to just focus on this?

Pretty much exclusively on this. Once in a while, we’re at these meetings where we all look at "Toy Story 3" or "Brave" or whatever and we all give comments and notes, but that’s just like a day here or there."

Catch that? I am sure that you did. While referring to what seemed to be upcoming Pixar films, Pete Docter placed Brave among them! What could this mysterious title refer to? Toy Story 3's short? Pixar's next film after their current line-up? A replacement title or nickname for The Bear and the Bow? A completely imaginary thing? A publicity stunt? I have no idea what it might be, but I am sure we will find out soon enough . . .

Note: The above logo is made by me based solely on the title Brave.

Update: According to The Pixar Blog, my guess that Brave is just a nickname for the upcoming Pixar film The Bear and the Bow was entirely correct! The Bear and the Bow will be directed by Brenda Chapman, and is Pixar's very first "fairytale movie".

Actually, Pixar's upcoming film "Brave" was previously titled "The Bear and the Bow". It's not just a Nickname.
