Yuko Oshima Plays The Voice Of Princess Merida from Disney/Pixer’s Flim “Brave”

  April 6, 2012

It’s revealed that Yuko Oshima of AKB48 will play a role as a voice actress for the coming new film from Disney “Brave”. She plays a protagonist of the story, Princess Merida. This is her second voice actress work, but the first time for films from Hollywood.

“This is so impressive, I’m ready to put my best into the work!” Yuko said. She has been a keen Disney film fan, and in that sense this is going to be her dream job. It was her dearest person who’s pleased with this news, her mother. She is also a huge fan of Disney and when she first heard the news from her, she said to her “You!!!???” as Yuko told.

Self claim huge fan of Disney, Yuko talked that her best favorite is “Toy Story3”, which she watched and cried, moved for countless times. She first watched the movie when she was 17, the age about the same as the Andy (in the film), who stopped playing with his toys. This Andy’s situation was overlapping herself at the time, making this movie so attached to her memory, she said.

As for her role as Princess Merida, “I try my best so that people think I’m the best fit for the role, and feel encouraged and cheered. Please looking forward the movie.”

This is the first flim of Pixer that features a female human as the protagonist. In Scotland, the story describes adventure of Merida who loves freedom going through the fate waiting for her deep in the enigmatic forest protected by spirites.
