Yet another trailer post in a week? Another fairy tale, no less. Well, normally I reserve only one trailer post per week but this one just can’t wait, folks!
As you know, I LOVE Pixar’s movies and I grew up watching those Disney fairy tales. With this 13th feature film, we’ve got Pixar’s first foray into fairy tale territory with BRAVE. You’ve perhaps seen the initial pics and poster, and I’ve also reported that Scottish composer Patrick Doyle is doing the score, so now behold the first trailer:
Here’s the official story per Pixar’s official site:
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.
This trailer looks good!! Princess Merida looks sooo adorable with her fiery red hair and I have a thing for anything Scottish and the lush Highland setting is gorgeous! The visuals reminds me a bit of How to Train Your Dragon somehow, as I said to Castor when additional stills were released. Once again I ask, why aren’t Gerry Butler in this?? 😀 His pal Craig from HTTYD is part of the cast after all, and he once played Billy Connolly’s brother in Mrs. Brown.
Anyway, I can’t wait for this one. With the talents involved and how this looks visually, I can’t imagine I’ll be disappointed. So it’s about 8-month wait until it’s released on June 22, 2012.
What say you, folks? Are you as excited for this as I am?
