Watch this teaser trailer for Pixar's Brave...

Then this trailer...

Then this extended scene...

Sounds like typical Disney fare, right? Where you have a girl with hopes and dreams, but has to break free of society's conventions and expectations of her to find true freedom and happiness. And probably some dude to hook up with.

But then watch this trailer...

Which film are we going to get? I'd much rather watch the one from the Japanese trailer, than the dumbed-down one aimed at American audiences.




She's hot.

Aye.

At least they used proper Scottish actors to do the voices (unlike Shrek)! It will be interesting to see if the Pixar magic is back after the awful Cars 2 ...

Pretty soon you'll be able to go to Disneyland and meet a young Orange County performer doing her best Scottish accent.

Only if the movie's a success. But I guess it would give them an excuse to open up a new part of Disneyland - "Scotland". ;)

Hehe. By the way, it's impressive how far CGI has come with rendering hair.
  • Report
Yeah, hair is crazy-difficult to do. The Incredibles was one of their breakthroughs, since they had to do long hair, wind-blown hair, wet hair, underwater hair, etc.

I'm going to go ahead and predict that Brave will be successful, and between it and The Hunger Games, 2012 will be remembered as the year of the Archer Girl.

Marvel really missed an opportunity here with The Avengers, by not recasting Hawkeye as a woman.

Speaking of The Avengers and Japanese trailers...

Speaking of the Avengers, I'm not too familiar with comic books, so when I heard about it I thought this:

That's why the official title (in small print) is actually "Marvel's The Avengers".

Okay, speaking of summer movies...

Prometheus looks fully AWESOME.

Ridley Scott and a semi-prequel to Alien? Looks awsome!

Another Brave trailer.

I still think the Japanese trailer is more compelling.

I don't know about Anaheim, but Merida has been spotted in Orlando.

Wow... that's perkiness of a whole different scary level. I'm sure the actress (aka "cast member") is happy to have a job... but at what cost to her soul? I think I'd spend every evening after work retching uncontrollably if I had to do that all day.
