Brand New Trailer for Pixar's 'Brave'

Pixar released the first teaser trailer for their next big film called Brave, and it looks pretty good, even if it’s only 1:15 long. Here’s the synopsis:

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.

It’s worth mentioning that this is the first female protagonist that Pixar’s ever had, something long overdue. The character looks amazing, I love her shock of red hair that stands out against the dark greens of her environment. I also read that the story is supposed to be a bit darker and more mature, like something from Grimm’s fairy tales, which is a great move. Adults love these movies just as much as children do, so it’ll be interesting if they market it to be more adult-centric. I also have a feeling they released this trailer online so that people have something to talk about instead of bagging on Cars 2, which as of today has a Metacritic score of 58.

What do you think of the trailer?

    The trailer’s quite good. I like the shift Pixar’s taking here from their usual light-hearted films. It comes off as much more serious than anything they’ve released. As a twenty-year old fan of Pixar this is a very welcome departure.

    Also as a fan of ‘Princess Mononoke’ I must say I’m glad to see a female as the lead and I would’t be surprised if someone over there at Pixar HQ had drawn some inspiration from Hayao Miyazaki’s warrior-princess. It’s the antithesis it appears of Disney’s typical “damsel-in-distress” princess which is quite awesome. Kudos Pixar

    I needed something refreshing like this to wipe the sour taste of Cars 2 out of my mouth.

    The only sequel I want to see is The Incredibles 2 but until that comes this action packed film will do quite well, I believe

    The pace of the narration is perfect. I got a touch of the chills when she let’s the arrow fly.

    I’ve seen Cars 2. It’s a good movie… not great.
