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.

Kevin McKidd has ben slumming in Grey's Anatomy for the past few years. I can't wait for that to be over.

i hate to keep beating the horse...

but this (and Cars 2 for obvious Larry the Cable Guy reasons) is the only Pixar trailer that doesn't excite me because just nothing about it seems Pixar to me. I've seen this story, even if it has a twist, it would have to be a friggen incredible twist, b/c I've seen everything in that trailer.

I am a big Pixar fan, but I just can't get excited for Brave. I wish I were, but sadly I agree with what you said.

Most stories aren't that truly original anymore. It's just how well it's all put together which Pixar is generally better than anyone else at.

Looking at other movies. Was How to Train a Dragon really that original? I don't think so, but it was well done and very enjoyable. I'm personally very excited to see Pixar do a more traditional Disney type story.

i know "nothing is original" is usually the reply when someone says what I said... but seriously, in this case, i feel like ive literally seen the entire story and im not using the word literally wrong. The only thing that could potentiall set it apart from the trailers ive seen is that floating magic thing. Rebelious female princess - check. Scottish countryside - check. archery contests - check. accents - check. I could go on.

Also...

Very Enjoyable trailer, seemed a bit 'standard fare' trailer wise though.
Then the final 20 seconds happened, and they were absolutely beautiful

I have no idea why other animated studios bother.
Pop culture gags and 'that's what she said' jokes=/= an animated film.

Also, Mckidd's been doing voice work in the Call of duty games, so I imagine if you tell people he's 'Soap', they'll know who you're on about.
