The full trailer for Pixar’s next film, Brave, came out yesterday. It is the first Pixar film with a female heroine, Merida, and she has quite the head of red hair. The film is set in the Highlands of Scotland, which means that there are plenty of Scottish accents in the film. Hopefully, the little ones can understand the words. I have to admire the Pixar studio for just what I have seen in this trailer. Merida has a lot of unruly, curly red hair that must have taken a lot of time to animate. I am very much looking forward to seeing this one on the big screen.
The cast of voices include Kelly MacDonald, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson, and Robbie Coltrane.
“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 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.”
Brave is in theatres June 22, 2012.
