Now this is just what this day called for! More Brave! We needed some beautiful Disney/Pixar imaginings of the mist shrouded Scottish Highlands set to the strains of some rousing Celtic music. Ahhh…I can almost smell the heather!
There have been so many delightful images, clips and trailers already released for Brave that I feel like I’m well acquainted with Merida, our heroine, already, but there’s nothing like hearing her talk about herself in her own voice…well, in Kelly Macdonald’s (Boardwalk Empire) voice at any rate.
Watch this clip in which the princess talks about changing her fate and invoking a “wee tiny curse” that sets the story in motion:
More to follow I’m sure. Brave, featuring the voices of Macdonald, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and Robbie Coltrane, open s June 22 in the US and Canada and 17th August in the UK (before which the film will be featured at the Edinburgh Film Festival).
