First Brave Trailer Promises Breathtaking Pixar Fairy Tale
Welcome to fairy tale trailer week! Yesterday, Movieline previewed Mirror, Mirror, Tarsem Singh's hammy Snow White adaptation which features Julia Roberts as an ineffectively evil queen who worries about age lines and financial security (just like you!). Today, Pixar has unveiled a full-length trailer for the company's first foray into fairy tale territory, the much more promising Brave.
Unlike yesterday's Mirror, Mirror, which drove some inventive commenters to customize a drinking game just to get through the two minute preview, Brave seems like it will be an inspiring, heartwarming and fairly original story told via Pixar's gorgeous 3-D computer animation. The story centers on Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald), a Scottish princess and courageous archer who upends tradition in her kingdom, only to unleash chaos and fury to those around her. To undo these consequences, Merida must learn the meaning of true bravery.
Julie Walters, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Kevin McKidd and Craig Ferguson also provide voices in the Mark Andrews-directed picture, set to premiere June 22.
