First Look: Disney/Pixar’s ‘Brave’ Teaser


With Cars 2 topping the box office in the US, Disney/Pixar have wasted no time in delivering a new teaser for next year’s Brave, their first non-sequel since 2009’s Up. In Brave, Scottish princess Merida (Kelly McDonald) defies her parents by persuing an interest in archery, but inadvertently jeopardizes her father’s kingdom in the process.

The new teaser, which played in the US in front of Cars 2 this weekend,  only runs for just over a minute, and is much darker in tone than some of the other recent animated efforts on the market.

This comes hot on the heels of the teaser poster that was announced late last week.
