Pixar’s ‘Brave’ – New Trailer25.04.12 # Trailers # 7 Comments
Aye the new trailer for Pixar Scottish adventure Brave has made a wee splash:
The story of highland princess Merida is Pixar’s first fairytale and first female lead – some pretty major firsts! A lot of the plot remains a mystery, but it looks a lot like Merida’s wishes result in some magical transformations…
Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida is the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, Merida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom.
In an attempt to set things right, Merida seeks out an eccentric old Wise Woman (Julie Walters) and is granted an ill-fated wish. Also figuring into Merida’s quest – and serving as comic relief – are the kingdom’s three lords: the enormous Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), the surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), and the disagreeable Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane).
Brave opens June 22nd in the US, and months later (August 17th) in the UK.
