This is a big week for Disney. Last night was the premiere of their upcoming sci-fi epic, John Carter. Yesterday they dropped a brand new poster for this summer’s animated Brave. I held off on bringing it to you because I knew they were giving us a new trailer today. So here ya go!
Actually, it’s more of a clip than a trailer. It’s all of one scene in particular, wherein various sons of various Scottish Lairds compete in an archery contest for the hand of the fair Princess, flame-haired Merida. The Princess of course, has other ideas.
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 (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.
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 Witch (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.
Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, Brave is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and signature Pixar humor enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
Brave takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
