I know you’re all digging that new “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” trailer this morning — and why not? it’s totally diggable — but here’s something a little different. (Or maybe it’s not that different?) This morning brings us a new trailer and very short featurette for Disney/Pixar’s latest, “Brave”, which has such a thick Scottish accent that for a moment there I thought it was speaking in a completely different language. Then again, it’s not everyday I see a CG movie with a primarily Scottish cast of characters.
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.
Featuring the accents of Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson, and Robbie Coltrane.
