“I am Merida, and I’ll be shooting for my own hand!“
Disney has revealed the second full theatrical trailer for Pixar’s Brave, and it’s actually a condensed scene from the movie of an archery competition for Princess Merida’s hand in marriage. Disney is being sneaky by building hype but without revealing any more that we haven’t seen before. I actually watched this entire clip at D23 last year, and we’ve seen plenty of real footage in the trailers, so they’re still hiding all of the third act and where this story ends up. But nonetheless, this looks great, it’s a fantastic trailer – I just wish it was our first teaser, not the third. Enjoy!
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.
