Brave fears Scots accents

Have your say

MAKERS of animated blockbuster Brave have hired actors to dub the film overseas because they fear the Scottish accents will be difficult to understand.

The Disney Pixar film, which will premiere in Edinburgh, is to be voiced by natives in countries such as Japan, Taiwan and France to avoid confusion.

That means Scottish cast members Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Robbie Coltrane, Craig Ferguson and Kevin McKidd will not be heard in non-English speaking countries.

Brave is set to provide a multi-million pound tourism boost for the country.
