New trailer for Pixar's Brave

Archers... READY!

Brave, the latest offering from Pixar, has released a new teaser trailer, in which Kelly Macdonald’s feisty princess Merida shows off her skills with a bow and arrow.

The new trailer takes the shape of a single scene, rather than the usual hotpotch of dialogue and action, and focuses upon an archery contest to determine who will win Merida’s hand in marriage.

Fed up with the saps and show-offs vying to become her husband, Merida soon takes matters into her own hands, much to the chagrin of parents Emma Thompson and Billy Connolly.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

The film will follow the mayhem caused in the kingdom following Merida’s rebellion, a situation compounded still further when the young princess hastily demands a wish from a mysterious Wise Woman (Julie Walters).

We’ve still not seen much from Brave to really get the adrenaline pumping, but given the quality of the voice cast and Pixar’s exemplary track record, we’re sure they’re holding the best material back for the finished film.

Brave opens in the UK on 13 August 2012.

What do you make of Brave so far? Can it live up to the rest of Pixar's back catalogue? Tell us, below.

      Looks great. Nice to see a female lead.

      Beautiful animation. The three archers are a bit generic (for the kids, I guess) but the rebellious daugther/coming of age angle has me hooked already.

      Yes there are many stereotypes in this scene. But I like the idea of a trailer being a scene extracted from the film rather that rapid cutting.

      Excellent. All trailers should be like this. You get a true flavour of the film, rather than the dishonest spin that the marketing team want. Also, it does not give away the entire plot of the movie.
