Brave move: Scotland map Disney work
DISNEY might be releasing a new animated film based in Scotland but it’s doubtful they know much about the country if their map is anything to go by.
The film company published an advertising video promoting the Adventures by Disney Parks on YouTube.
But bosses appear to have depicted the Scots/English border as starting near Edinburgh and finishing near Oban.

The Kingdom of Fife is also depicted as being separate from the rest of Scotland.
And rather than label England as independent of Scotland, Disney bosses have decided to brand it as the United Kingdom, a term which encompasses both Scotland and England as well as Wales and Northern Ireland.
Disney who along with Pixar are scheduled to release animated film Brave at the Edinburgh Film Festival on June 30 this year might find they’ve upset the nation the flick is meant to emulate.
Brave includes top Scot actors such as Billy Connolly and Robbie Coltrane as well as Kelly MacDonald, who found early fame as Mark Renton’s teen love-interest Diane in Trainspotting.
Disney Parks were unavailable comment.
