3rd trailer for Disney Pixar's Brave is all about family, laughs, bears, and...pies?
We have a third trailer for Disney/Pixar's BRAVE today, featuring more footage, dialogue, and what sounds to be music from the film. This trailer plays more like the traditional Disney trailers, playing up the filmmaker's past credits and sending us off with a song. It's fun, whimsy, and humorous, if even in a cutesy way.
Take a look:
Billy Connolly as King Fergus is pretty great and he had me rolling with the impression of Merida, which is a clever wink to the grown-up audience of the film. How many times have we seen the rebellious teenager hungering for "freedom" and to just "be themselves?" It's a nod that acknowledges the stereotype and I give them kudos for that. Also, those three kids are going to be annoyingly awesome. I love some ornery little shits wreaking havoc...
Case in point:
Here's the official synopsis:
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.
BRAVE unleashes its rebellious side on June 22, 2012.
|Extra Tidbit:||Where has Kevin McKidd been? He was awesome in HBO's Rome...someone needs to put him in something worthwhile.|
