... Last night was obviously a Scottish-themed celebration. Which officially kicked off as the Los Angeles Scottish Pipe Band paraded in, playing "Scotland the Brave."

As you might expect, a lot of the vocal talent associated with this new Pixar Animation Studios release worked the green carpet last night. Among the people who put in appearances were Craig Ferguson (who voiced Lord Macintosh in this movie) ...

... not to mention veteran Pixarians like Brad Bird (director of "The Incredibles" and "Ratatouille") & Enrico Casarosa (the director of Pixar's latest short, "La Luna") turn out to show their support for "Brave."

But after all the interviews were given, all the autographs were signed and all of the photos were taken, it was actually time for "Brave" 's world premiere. The principals -- including Disney CEO Bob Iger and Ed Catmull, president of Walt Disney & Pixar Animation Studios -- all gathered for one final photo op right in front of the Dolby Theatre ...
