The teaser trailer for Pixar’s Brave was an absolutely gorgeous thing that showed off the studio’s first female lead, Merida, voiced by Kelly Macdonald.
Now here’s the full trailer, which introduces us to the film’s world and the gloriously exaggerated characters that inhabit it. This isn’t one of Pixar’s best trailer efforts, I think, but hopes for Brave remain high. Read More »

The trailer for Brave, Pixar’s next full-length animated film, will arrive tomorrow. In anticipation of that look at the film three new stills have come online. The pics show most of the film’s major characters, and reinforce the impression given off by the teaser that this might be Pixar’s most fully-realized world.
Brave is Pixar’s first film with a central female protagonist, and Kelly Macdonald voices Merida, a rebellious young princess who brings trouble to her land after breaking an ancient custom. That’s her in the image above, and you’ll meet other characters in the gallery below.

It’s hard to fathom that Brave, Pixar’s next feature film, is still almost a year away. To date, fans have seen the exciting, yet deliberately non-revealing, teaser trailer, a few concept images, and that’s about it. The D23 Expo changed that, though, as attendees got a much better idea of what June 22, 2012 holds. Director Mark Andrews and producer Katherine Sarafian presented footage on Saturday while production designer Steve Pilcher and art director Tia Kratter explained the visuals on Sunday. Combining the two panels, we learned a ton of new information. Is the Pizza Planet truck in the movie? When does the film take place? What visuals changed with the new director? After the jump, read 10 brand new Brave facts. Read More »
On June 20th, I flew to San Francisco to visit Barsoom Studios, in an office building minutes sown the road from Pixar Animation Studios, to see the first footage from John Carter, a big screen adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic sci-fi novel A Princess of Mars.
In a screening room, Finding Nemo/Wall-E director Andrew Stanton gave us a powerpoint presentation explaining why and how he became involved in the project, and the unique methods they used to “shoot” the film (you can read a transcript of Andrew’s complete presentation and Q&A elsewhere on /Film). We screened a couple scenes from the movie, and the teaser trailer which will be attached to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II (expect to see it online on Thursday, July 14th).
After the jump you can read my brief thoughts, followed by a video blog I recorded with Frosty from Collider (who admits he knows nothing about the source material) and Eric Vespe (better known as Quint from Ain’t It Cool, who knows way way way more than I will ever know about the source material). So we have a good spread of opinions based on a wide range of expectations and knowledge of the source material.

Pixar fans hoping that Michael Giacchino would just forever be the in-house composer are going to be a tad disappointed today. It’s been revealed that Patrick Doyle, the composer who did Thor and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, will be scoring next summer’s Pixar film, Brave. However, don’t fret just yet. Doyle is Scottish, much like the voice actors and characters in the film, and he’s aiming to bring some of the country’s native flavor to the music. Read more after the jump. Read More »
No one will ever argue that this past weekend was Pixar’s best, as Cars 2 opened with a solid but not overwhelming take and a fairly dismal critical reception. But there is a bright spot: the teaser trailer for next year’s Pixar summer film, the fairy tale Brave. The teaser is now online, and it is a small piece of beauty. Check it out below. Read More »
Editor’s Update: I have updated the story with a new super high resolution photo officially released by Disney of Brave’s main protagonist. Hit the jump to see the full image.
If you pay to see Cars 2 this weekend or in the near future you’ll be treated to a teaser for the Pixar film that is due to be released a year from now: Brave, once called The Bear and the Bow. We don’t have that teaser online just yet, but yesterday the first teaser poster arrived (complete with a small, misty look at the bear that was once in the title) and now we have good new looks at three of the main characters. Check them out, along with a high-res version of the teaser poster, after the break. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
This might not be Pixar’s best week, with Cars 2 premiering to generally unfavorable reviews. (Germain was more charitable to it than others, but still said “it places near the bottom of [Pixar's] impressive list.”)
But with Cars 2 comes a teaser trailer for Brave, the film the studio will release next June. That teaser may not appear online for a bit, but a teaser poster has been spotted in the wild for Brave as well, and you can see it in full after the fold. Read More »
