Brave trailer from Pixar
Another strong Scottish sounding film, both in title and in accents, and not only does it come from the excellent animators Pixar, but it carries a great cast, some of whom are Scottish too! Kelly Macdonald, Kevin McKidd, Robbie Coltrane, Billy Connolly, Craig Ferguson, Emma Thompson and Julie Walters, see most of them are Scottish!
The trailer is more of a teaser, but it looks good, and the writers behind it carry a good few films to their name. Still though, I've not heard that much about the film.
Brave is set in Scotland, am I overselling that part? Here's the blurb so I can stop talking about it!
Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida (Kelly Macdonald) 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 Merida's quest - and serving as comic relief - are the kingdom's three lords: the enormous Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), the surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), and the disagreeable Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane).
Sounds good fun, and there are two writers on the project, one is from a Disney background, the other from Pixar, so it looks like it could be a nice mix. What I'm surprised about is that the trailer does seem a little darker than the lighter fare I was expecting from something with which Disney is involved.
Have a look for yourself, here's the Brave trailer, more of a teaser I'd say.
