Since the teaser, Brave (choosing to instead focus on artistry and mystery), the newest film from Pixar, Disney-Pixar has finally released a full theatrical trailer which presents more of the story arc for their latest animated adventure,follows a Scottish princess Merida (Kelly MacDonald) who is more interested in honing her bow and arrow skills than romance.
This is a computer-animated film (3D) which is being produced by Pixar Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. Pixar animation has many other films which I would like to remind; Toy Story (1995, definitely the best animation ever), A Bug’s Life (1998), Toy Story 2 (1999, this is even better than the first one), Monsters, Inc. (2001, quite funny and good pictures), Finding Nemo (2003, a must see animation), The Incredibles (2004), Cars (2006) , Ratatouille (2007, cheese freaks) , WALL-E (2008, I really feel sorry for that cute little robot), Up (2009, very dramatic, believe me I watched this more than twice in one day), Toy Story 3 (2010, no more to say, excellent), Cars 2 (2011), and of course Brave (2012)
Not only that, she can ride a horse like a champion and can easily survive alone in the mysterious forest that surrounds her home in the highlands of Scotland.
Here’s the official synopsis for Brave (2012):
This film is sort of a fairy tale with dark and mythical elements in it. If you the image of Scotland, those highlands and mystic places excite you, you will definitely like the story of the courageous girl Merida (a skilled archer) who while trying to find her own way in life, defies the authorities, causing a lot problems and at the same time tries her best to set things right again. You will witness chaos, fury and evilry but in the end bravery will challange them all.
The teaser trailer for Disney-Pixar’s upcoming animated adventure Brave is available for viewing. It is a story about an unruly princess, who through her defiant actions, brings chaos to the kingdom. To undue her mistake, she sets out on a mission with three Lords to retrieve a wish from a questionable source. Sure to be a well woven story (Pixar films generally are), the real take away from this trailer, which doesn’t offer much of anything to the story details, is the magnificently rendered landscapes of the Scottish Highlands.
Brave employs the voice talents of Emma Thompson, Kelly Macdonald, Kevin McKidd, Robbie Coltrane, Julie Walters and Craig Ferguson.
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 (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.
Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of 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 (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (voice of 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.
Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and the signature Pixar humor enjoyed by audiences of all ages. The film takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
