Disney Pixar has released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming Scottish-tinged “Brave”, which looks like a pretty straight-forward action-adventure with a plucky female lead, a far cry from their other, more fantastical movies about talking cars, robots, superheroes, and old men and their flying balloons and what have you.
The rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland serve as the backdrop for BRAVE, a new tale that joins the land’s ancient lore—stories of epic battles and mystical legends passed down for generations. Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, BRAVE is the grand adventure of Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer who confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts to discover the true meaning of courage.
Featuring the voices of Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson, Robbie Coltrane, and directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman.
The plucky Irish lass arrives June 22, 2012.
