Disney•Pixar has unveiled the seventh promo clip for their forthcoming feminist fairy tale, Brave
(originally entitled The Bear And The Bow).
Directed by Mark Andrews
(“The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” “John Carter”) and Brenda Chapman
(“The Lion King,” “Prince of Egypt”), and produced by Katherine Sarafian
(“Lifted,” “The Incredibles”), “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and the signature Pixar humor enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
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 (Kelly Macdonald
) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly
) and Queen Elinor (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 (Kevin McKidd
), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson
) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane
). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (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.
Brave comes to theaters June 22nd, 2012 . UK audiences will have to wait until Friday, August 17th.
