Brave Trailer

I am really looking this movie as Pixar brings us a new Disney Princess, and the tale of her journey through ancient times, epic battles and mystical legends, “Brave,” joins the lore of the rugged and mysterious Scottish Highlands.  "Brave", which with Mark Andrews is on it's second director, had a working title of "The Bear and the Bow", and is said to be a darker, more mature Fairytale in the tradition of the Brother's Grimm.  The animation in the trailer looks beautiful, and I'm excited to meet this spunky red headed Princess.  I haven't seen a lot of information out there yet for this one, but I received the following synopsis from Walt Disney Studios yesterday. 

"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 Wise Woman (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."

The film takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters. Follow on Twitter and Facebook for the latest information on what's happening.
