I really hate to say it but BRAVE is probably the first Pixar movie I am not looking forward to. It’s not that it looks bad, it’s just that it doesn’t pop out at me like something I HAVE to see. CARS 2 had a bit of the same reaction but after being let down by that my excitement for BRAVE has suffered as a result. Now that I’ve talked it up and you are chomping at the bit for the film you can check out some new footage from the film HERE. Feel free to express your thoughts on the footage below.
In no way am I saying BRAVE is going to suck- who knows, I might end up loving it to death. Right now though, until the movie premieres I stand in a position of indifference. I love CG animated movies and have adored most of Pixar’s work so I will be checking it out at some point and I hope to be blown away.
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 (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. 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.
