Disney-Pixar released today the first concept-arts of "Brave" the new - and intriguing - Pixar animated movie to be released summer 2012 (August 1st, 2012 in France).
Here is a first synopsis from IMDB: Set in Scotland in a rugged and mythical time, "Brave" features Merida, an aspiring archer and impetuous daughter of royalty. Merida makes a reckless choice that unleashes unintended peril and forces her to spring into action to set things right.
Mark Andrews, the director of Brave, says:" Brave is a big adventure with plenty of action, humor and feelings. For this fairy-tale we couldn't dreamed of a better decor than the wild and dark landscapes of Scottish Highlands. Think: magic, mystery and danger at the heart of a fascinating and mythical land. This movie will look like nothing we've seen before from Pixar!"
More about the story-line from the Disney release: "Kelly Macdonald will be the voice of Merida, an aspiring archer, and daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Voice of Emma Thompson). Totally decided to follow her own way in life, Merida defy a sacred millenium tradition at the eyes of three lords: the impressing Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), Lord Macintosh, highly desagreable (voice of Craig Ferguson) and irascible Lord Dingwall (voix de Robbie Coltrane).
But Merida will involuntarily unleash chaos in the kingdom and when she will ask for help to an old eccentric woman known for her wisdom, Merida will see an unfortunate wish being realized… The danger will force Merida to find the true meaning of the word "bravery" if she wants to prevent the terrible curse which is now coming..."
Well, all this looks intriguing, doesn't it? For sure something totally new from Pixar and, as a rumor says that we might see a first trailer in front of Cars 2, we should know more about "Brave" in three months from now.
