Brenda Chapman, the co-director of Pixar’s Brave, has made a post to her blog about Meryl Streep’s recent controversal comments about Walt Disney.  The following is from her post:

Whether or not you agree with Streep’s assessment of Disney as a man, (many are already offering up defenses) you do have to admire her boldness for making her opinions known in such a public manner, especially since she is under contract with Disney for the recently-shot film Into the Woods. Not to mention that Saving Mr. Banks, starring Tom Hanks as Disney opposite Thompson’s Travers, is truly an effort by the Disney company to show the very best qualities of Disney the man, and thus far has been very well-received by audiences and critics alike.
