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.
