Pixar’s Brave – About a girl (new trailer)

by Meg on June 29, 2011

If you haven’t heard, Pixar will be releasing their first film with a bit more darker and serious tone than the rest of their catalog, entitled “Brave.”  Set to come out in the summer of 2012, Brave follows a young Scottish girl, trying to set her own path while battling various foes and obstacles from her world.  From the movie’s website:

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In Brave, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.

I am VERY excited for this film, despite some of the background politics involved at Pixar.  Check out the newly released trailer below.YouTube Preview Image
