A new trailer has arrived for Brave, the latest sword-swinging adventure from Pixar, and it looks to be shaping up very nicely indeed.
Brave tells the story of Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald), a feisty young princess whose determination to blaze her own trail in life leads to the defiance of an ancient custom and all hell breaking loose in the Kingdom of her parents, King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson).
Distraught at the pain she has caused her family, Merida seeks out a mysterious wise woman (Julie Walters) to help her put things right again. Take a look at the trailer below, and see what you think…
The trailer looks suitably epic, packed with sweeping aerial shots of the rolling hills and brooding landscape of the Scottish Highlands. Meanwhile, there’s a tip-top cast providing the supporting vocals, including Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and Robbie Coltrane.
It’s nice to see Pixar doing something different subject-wise, and it will be interesting to see how their first attempt at a fairytale measures up to the likes of Tangled and How To Train Your Dragon.
Brave is released in the UK on 17 August 2012.
Does Brave look like another success for Pixar, or have they lost their way with this one? Tell us!
