As soon as Pixar release a new movie you can guarantee the promotion of the next one isn’t far behind. In fact, on this occasion it is at exactly the same time. We here at Disneybrit were lucky enough to see Cars 2 at weekend, a month before its release in the UK (review to come on July) but before the movie we were given the chance to see two new trailers. The first, a look at Lion King in 3D to come out later in the year but the second is our first real, yet brief look at Pixar’s foray into the world of fairytales, Brave. According to an official release the plot is as follows:
“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.
Directed by Mark Andrews (“The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” “John Carter of Mars”) and Brenda Chapman (“The Lion King,” “Prince of Egypt”), and produced by Katherine Sarafian (“Lifted,” “The Incredibles”), “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and the signature Pixarhumor enjoyed by audiences of all ages. The film takes aim at cinemas in 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.”
