Pixar’s ‘Brave’ Trailer is Adventurous, Funny and Thrilling

BraveQuick: think of your three favorite movies. No doubt, the ones that immediately come to mind are Braveheart, Mulan and Grizzly Man. Well then…have we got a trailer for you!

Pixar’s latest sensation is Brave, the story of the unlikely hero Princess Merida, who decides to change her own fate by taking on the legendary monster destined to attack her Scottish homeland.

In the spirit of any Pixar film, the trailer delights us with heartwarming moments, comedic moments, and visually stunning moments. However, this seems like quite a leap for Pixar in the “epic” department. Whereas most Pixar films are smaller stories (literally—the subjects are regularly no larger than a few inches tall), Brave looks to be a sweeping, colossal adventure story.

Enjoy the fun trailer below. Stars include Boardwalk Empire‘s Kelly Macdonald as the central Princess Merida, Emma Thompson as Queen Elinor, Billy Connolly as King Fergis, and Kevin McKidd, Robbie Coltrane and Craig Ferguson as the three hostile, bumbling Scottish lords.
