Two New Clips From Pixar’s ‘Brave’
Pixar is looking to turn the tables on the traditional tale of the helpless princess with their upcoming animated feature ‘Brave.’ But it’s not all fun and games, as you’ll see from these two new clips Pixar just released.
Starring the voice talents of Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson, Robbie Coltrane, and Julie Walters, ‘Brave’ has already been receiving positive rewviews from critics who have seen it early and after watching these two clips, it’s easy to see why. Not only is the animation gorgeous, but the movie looks like it’s a lot of fun to sit through. ‘Brave’ opens in theaters on June 22nd.
Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands ofScotland. 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.
The first clip is a TV spot called “Summer games.” Check it out below.
