Late Night Trailers: Brave

The teaser trailer for next summer's Pixar output: Brave.  Too bad it wasn't this summer's Pixar film, is what I have to say.  The company is getting in on Disney's Princess racket, contributing one flame haired tough cookie in Merida.  The visuals and character design are gorgeous thus far, and the synopsis doesn't sound half bad either:
"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)."  [source]
Have fun waiting until June 2012.

  1. Cars 2 hasn't been released yet in the UK, but when it does, I am probably going to see it just because I kind of want to give Pixar the benefit of the doubt.

    I think the result of Cars 2 might be some Disney driven cash-in though, so we can never really tell.

    Brave, however, looks a-m-a-z-i-n-g. And female-fronted wise, it will definitely be an interesting one to talk about when it rolls round next year.
