Pixar Gets Intense With ‘Brave’ Teaser Poster

22 Jun
2011

Pixar’s first cinematic fantasy tale featuring a female lead debuted its new teaser poster today. The film centers around a Scottish princess (Kelly Macdonald) who is an unruly, but skilled archer. When she accidentally defies a local custom, she brings chaos to her kingdom and must seek the wisdom of an old wise woman (Julie Walters) to set things right.

First-time feature director Mark Andrews explains: “What we want to get across [with the teaser poster] is that this story has some darker elements. Not to frighten off our Pixar fans – we’ll still have all the comedy and the great characters – but we get a little bit more intense here.” His previous directorial effort was the Pixar short One Man Band (the opening short to Cars), along with Andrew Jimenez.

Pixar’s Brave hits theaters next summer on June 22, 2012.

UPDATE: Watch the teaser trailer.

    Can’t wait to see this and I don’t mind a darker tale from Pixar. Animated features aren’t just for kids anymore. I wonder if this is gonna be rated PG?

    There’s really getting to be a convergence between movie and game graphics. Their sweeping shot of the village looked like a cut-scene from WoW or Oblivion to me.

    There’s really not a lot from that trailer that’s noteworthy other than the young heroine’s bright red hair. I remain skeptical until a more in-depth trailer surfaces.
