New Two And A Half Minute Clip and Poster for Pixar’s Brave is Kicking Ass and Taking Names.
The first trailer dropped a while back for Pixar’s upcoming release Brave and all it really did was show that the studio still had the ability to bring it. It was very pretty, well drawn and a true joy to watch. And then we heard nothing.
A new two and a half minute clip for Brave (above) as well it’s poster was released over the last couple of days and man oh man, they are not only pretty to look at, the movie is shaping up to be a ton of fun. I thought I had seen all of the Robin Hood-type cool arrow shots with the camera following, etc, etc. I really should have known better when Pixar is involved because this trailer really, really surprised me on many levels. Starting out slow, it gives us what we expect from a movie like this. Then, it really ramps it up and gives us something special, (having Billy Connolly voicing the King was a nice touch).
Glad to see that the company that Steve Jobs built hasn’t lost it’s mojo. I for one and am very much looking forward to when it opens in 3D on June 22nd.
As mentioned the trailer is above.
And here is the poster:
About the Film
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.
