Late Night Trailers: Pixar's 'Brave' Gets a Full Ad

Somehow, I'd completely failed to notice before the internet hubbub today: Brave features Pixar's first female lead.  That's right.  All of those other Pixar movies you love have one thing in common: they're technically "male" (as much as, say, a trash-compacting robot or action figure can be).  Merida, a rebellious, tough-ass princess (voiced by Kelly Macdonald), is Pixar's bonafide first lady, and Brave looks like no other film they've attempted before.  While tonally the trailer is a little confusing, this is one of those cases where I have a tremendous amount of faith in the final product.  Disney has faltered in properly selling its films to a critical audience in the last several go, and I suspect the unevenness here is just another instance of them attempting to skew the appeal in as many directions as possible...all at once.

Regardless, the animation looks (as usual) phenomenal.  I mean, get a load of the texture on that hair!  Let's all set little imaginary clocks to countdown the days until June.  That's right.  You have to wait all winter.  All winter.
