I’ve got kids, but that doesn’t mean I’m happy when most children’s movies hit the theater. In fact, you couldn’t drag me kicking and screaming to see Cars 2 (though I did consider it when I heard Pixar’s Brave trailer would be attached to the film). Instead, I have been stalking the interwebs, waiting for someone to get that first copy up and whaddayaknow…here it is. Never mind the fact that it starts out looking a little like a “Mystery Science Theater 3000” episode, because once it gets going, you can almost forget that you’re watching through the seats.
Brave is set in the Scottish Highlands, and follows a young Princess who longs to follow her passion, which—as is the norm—goes against tradition and her parents’ wishes. An avid archer, Princess Merida takes a course of action that reaps severe consequences and the young girl must summon all her courage to try to set things right. But you don’t care about all that; you just want to see the trailer:
Disney Pixar’s Brave boasts a glorious cast, including Emma Thompson, Julie Walters, Robbie Coltrane, Billy Connolly, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and Kelly Macdonald as Princess Merida. Sadly, it doesn’t hit theaters until June 22, 2012, so we’ll have to content ourselves with re-watching the real trailer (when we get it) over and over.
