Ohhh, Look…Disney/Pixar Releases First ‘BRAVE’ Poster – UPDATED

One of the trailers before Cars 2 will be a teaser for Pixar’s upcoming fantasy film Brave. I got to see it at a pre-sceeening last night and I have to say it looks really good, although this’ll no doubt draw comparisons to Dreamworks’ How To Train Your Dragon. But in a brief statement from director Mark Andrews, he promises this will be “a bit more intense” as Brave will have some “darker elements” among with the great comedy and characters Pixar is known for. Previously there were some neat looking concept photos (I posted them after the jump) but before you all get in the theaters to see the teaser, have a look at the first official poster below and let me know what you think…

Starring Kelly Macdonald (Trainspotting), Billy Connolly (The Boondock Saints), Emma Thompson (Love Actually), Robbie Coltrane (who’s freed up after the Harry Potter franchise ends) and Kevin McKidd (Grey’s Anatomy)  Brave tells the tale of  Scottish Princess Merida. She’s an unruly daughter whose not content to live by her family’s rules (sound like any other Disney Pricesses we know??). Merida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom. Sounds good and hopefully it’s on the same level of quality in films like Legend of The Guardians. Wait, this is Pixar we’re talking about, of course it’ll be good! For those of you who missed it, here are the concept photos from a few months back…

UPDATE: Here’s a shot of the main characters – clockwise from top left: Princess Merida, Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson), The Wise Woman, and Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson).

As of right now, Brave is set for release next Summer on June 22nd, 2012. I’m in but I’ll ask you…Anyone interested in this yet? Anyone eager to see the teaser before Cars 2? Anyone see Cars 2 yet??
