Merida shows off her sweet archery skills in the first image from Pixar's Brave

May. 27, 2011by:

I'm glad that BRAVE got a real Scottish lass in Kelly MacDonald (CHOKE, BOARDWALK EMPIRE).

Yesterday our first real look at the film from Disney Pixar France and The Art of Disney Animation Fan Facebook Page. Both have already removed the photo, but lucky for us it was still available to snag and show. Here we see Merida (MacDonald) taking aim with her bow and arrow while riding a horse. She's awesome! Check it out below along with the plot.

"Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida is the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, Merida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom. In an attempt to set things right, Merida seeks out an eccentric old Wise Woman (Julie Walters) and is granted an ill-fated wish. Also figuring into Meridas quest and serving as comic relief are the kingdoms three lords: the enormous Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), the surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), and the disagreeable Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane)."

I liked Tangled - until the inexplicable Chuck Norris tears came along. She should've just used her pubes to heal him.

Far as this film goes - I'm down - any time Pixar makes something original, it's great. I don't want sequels to Cars and Monsters Inc. In Toy Story, there was a reason to keep going back - what would Andy do with the toys as he aged? There was real tension there. Not just a cash cow.

Looks promising - I'd hate to think how long it'd take just to render that hair! Does anyone know more about why the film's director was 'fired'? As far as I knew it was her story, was halfway through until 'creative differences' popped up. It's a pity - could have been the first major animated film directed by a woman - featuring Pixar's first female lead / hero.

It's happened before: Jan Pinkava developed Ratatouille but was pulled halfway through in favour of Brad Bird. As I recall, that movie turned out all right.

Very nice soft focus. About time Pixar did something medieval, they can do so much more than talking toys and cars.

I can't get over that epic cast of Scots. Billy Connolly, Craig Ferguson, Robbie Coltrane, and Trainspotting vets Kevin McKidd, Kelly MacDonald.

The image has a sort of pre-raphelite quality to it. Could be good!

This looks gay. I'd rather see The Guardians of Childhood. Disney Pixar is so yesterday.

Yeah, I guess they are "yesterday" by being the most consistently original motion picture production force on the planet. Moron.

Stratburst is right, the only reason people like Miguelito say things like this is because they're angry lonely people who live alone, have no social life, and like to stir up trouble from the safety of their keyboard to feel better about their lonesome sad lives. Much like a troll under a bridge.

wasn't expecting much

after Pixar's recent years of crap (even though most still hopped on the fanboy bandwagon and ate it all up) I wasn't expecting much, but THIS looks like it may be a return to form, a return to great movies for Pixar -- very promising!

thumbs down away, even though it's a positive comment

nah, it's sad that the recent Pixar movies are so praised and often deemed 'classics'. That's sad.

christ, what's with people calling everyone with a different opinion than their own a fucking troll? grow up people, not everyone shares the same opinion, not everything you think is awesome is awesome to everyone, and not everything you think is shit is shit to everyone.
