Disney-Pixar's Brave trailer
The trailer for Disney and Pixar's film Brave has a fantastic opening feature, Billy Connolly, but the rest, well it's rather underwhelming as I'm struggling to see any story here just a series of different scenes that play on the comedy aspect.
The film follows a young Scottish girl who goes against the tradition and steps forward as the champion for her kingdom when the young men around her all turn out to be hapless in the task. This causes uproar, but ultimately we all know where it will lead.
Brave stars voices from a number of Scottish actors including Kelly Macdonald, Kevin McKidd, Robbie Coltrane, Billy Connolly, Craig Ferguson, and some that are from just over the border, Emma Thompson and Julie Walters.
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).
Here's the new trailer which comes through The Hollywood Reporter, see what you think as while I'm taken with the animation and the fact that it's all Scottish, the trailer tells us little and is rather a muddled mess, all it's saying to me is "look, Scottish people are funny", which we obviously are.
