Holy Scottish accents, Batman! This Brave trailer has rekindled my faith in Pixar since I turned off Cars 2 immediately after Mater sings the State Farm jingle. The animation studio is back to doing what it does best: Telling stories that are epic, hilarious and heartfelt.
Here is the synopsis from the studio:
Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) 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 Witch (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.
Brave is expected to hit theaters June 22, 2012.
