First Teaser Poster for Pixar's 'Brave' About Scottish Princess Merida
Are you ready to be introduced to the new Pixar movie for 2012? Disney has revealed the first teaser poster for Pixar's Brave over on Entertainment Weekly (via ComingSoon) today, to compliment the new teaser trailer that's attached to Cars 2 opening this weekend (go see it!). It's a very lush and gorgeous first look at the world we'll be getting into come next summer. To be honest, I'm not totally sold on this redhead Merida character yet, but I love the imagery and those little blue flames, whatever they are. The voice cast includes Kelly Macdonald as Merida, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Kevin McKidd and even Robbie Coltrane, too.
"What we want to get across [with the teaser] is that this story has some darker elements," said director Mark Andrews. "We'll still have all the comedy and the great characters. But we get a little bit more intense."
There is no high res yet, but you can check on EW.com. We'll update once it's available. First impression?
Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida is the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus (Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Thompson). An unruly daughter and accomplished archer, Merida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom. This was originally being helmed by Pixar's first female director, Brenda Chapman (of Prince of Egypt), but they have since brought in co-director Mark Andrews (of the short One Man Band) to take over and finish up the movie. Disney has already scheduled Pixar's Brave for release next summer on June 22nd, 2012. Intrigued yet?
