Pixar unveils ‘Brave’ with teaser trailer

The reviewers may have been unimpressed with “Cars 2” – which still went on to open at the top of the box office over the weekend– but interest has definitely been piqued for an upcoming project from the studio: “Brave.”

The animated tale follows a Scottish princess who goes against the wishes of her parents and inadvertently puts the kingdom in jeopardy as a result.

The minute-long clip shows the princess riding through a picturesque landscape as a narrator explains, "When we are put to the test, it is the one thing we must always be," before the title card flashes on the screen.

Kelly Macdonald ("Boardwalk Empire") provides the voice of the red-haired princess, with Emma Thompson and Kevin McKidd ("Grey's Anatomy") also cast. The animated fantasy will hit theaters June 22, 2012.

Check out the trailer below:

    Anything that is produced in Horrywood will make money due simply to the fact that 14 year olds are the ones going to see the flicks. Their parents tell them to get the hello out of the house and the movies are a low impact place to go. Still, the trailer looks interesting if the flick lives up to previous Pixar attempts. I'll wait for the rental market.

    Strikes me as a western version of something Hayao Miyazaki would make, someone whom John Lasseter has gushed about and praised for over a decade (and rightfully so, Miyazaki is a legend in animation). I'm looking forward to this, as well as a sequel to The Incredibles 🙂

    What is really cool about this film is that it is the first Pixar movie ever to "star" a girl. From what I understand, it is not at all a typical Disney princess film either.

      Well, technically, it is Disney Animation Studios that doesn't exist anymore. When Disney (the parent company) purchased Pixar, they fired all of the executives of Disney Animation Studios, and placed the executives of Pixar in their place. So in effect, Pixar now runs Disney rather than the other way around.

      And after the takeover, they have completely reimagined the 'princess' genre. Princess & the Frog and Tangled are VERY different stories from Snow White and Cinderella etc.

    I want to see a prequel And a sequal to The Incredibles. I want to see more films starring the superhero family. They will Never give Pixar an Academy award for Best picture, because they don't give A.A. award to animated movies, even before animated movies had their own special catagory, however, Pixar often gets an award from Rotten Tomatoes for the most critially praised movie of the year-Toy Story 2, Wall-E, Finding Nemo, Toy Story 3 to name a few Pixar films that earned better reviews than any other movie released durning the calendar year according to Rotten Tomatoes. Metacritic has also praised every Pixar movie in the past (execpt Cars 2).

      I agree. An incredibles sequel would be nice. Surprised they haven't made it already.

    • Huh?

      First time in a long time I've heard someone angrily dismissing something that may be original and demanding... a sequel? Zebbycat? How about just Copycat?

      Better yet. How a bout a pre-quel to the Incredibles. How did they get to be so Incredible?? And then a movie focusing on Jack-Jack as the baby Incredible red-hot flame-bursting baby who saves the day.

    Cars makes the crazy money.

    Everything else is for making money AND getting critical acclaim. Brave will be no different.
