Brave: New clip for Pixar’s latest film...

Whilst many will be hoping for something of a return to form after last year’s child pleasing, adult / critic displeasing Cars 2, few are really ever in doubt that Pixar offer anything but very high odds of good – quality entertainment.

Much has been made about Brave being their first female centric film, but all that really matter here is that the animation is perhaps their most beautiful to date and whether or not we’re getting a story up there with Toy story, The Incredible and Up, or more like Cars 2 or A Bugs’ Life. Again the smart money is on this one being a winner. Regardless I’m sure Disney will be expecting nothing less than a big commercial hit and lots & lots of licensing cash, even if it turns out to be a rare, non- Oscar worthy Pixar film.

“Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In "Brave," a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late.”
