Wish Dad a Very Brave Father's Day, From Pixar

Brave Father's Day

Too cute not to share: Pixar has cut a very special Brave promo, just in time for Father's Day, celebrating all that fathers teach us — how to acquire an inner strength and confidence as children that carries us into adulthood, how to shoot arrows, how to ride horses and become deadly sword-fighting killing machines... you know, the basics.

It's a nice reminder of what Pixar's first female-led animated feature represents — a strong heroine whose quest concerns self-possession and courage rather than romance. And archery. Between this and The Hunger Games, a whole new generation of little girls are going to grow up ready to tackle the world with a bow and arrow.

Brave screens at the LA Film Fest before opening nationwide on June 22.
