Brave a new Pixar film will be shown in theaters on June 22nd 2012. A story about Merida (Kelly Macdonald) who is a skilled archer and the daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). This young lady is determined to set her on path in this life and she openly defies old traditions which brought on an uproar in the kingdom. Chaos ensues in the land which leads Merida to seek the help of an old witch (Julie Walters), although this move seems to have caused an ill-fated curse upon her. Merida will have to discover the true meaning of bravery to be able to undo this curse before it is too late. As early as now Brave is starting to gain a lot of buzz from critics and movie fans all over the world. Let’s take a look at an early news provided to us by Ben Child on the movie “Brave”
“Brave: A Feisty Fairytale Brought To Us By Pixar
You might expect a studio with films of the quality of Up, Wall-E, Ratatouille and Toy Story 3 to be excused for making the odd turkey, yet there are still those who haven’t forgiven Pixar for churning out thedistinctly average Cars 2 last year. They’re the studio that are often seen as the antidote to bland Hollywood commercialism, so Cars 2′s vapidity stuck in the craw of critics almost as much as the sudden availability of entire fleets of branded merchandise. The good news is that the Emeryville-based production company’s latest offering, Brave, has the feel of a stout-hearted return to form, one that doesn’t look like a strong candidate for a cynical marketing drive.
On paper, the movie appears an easy target for cynics. It began life under a different director, Brenda Chapman, and with a different title, The Bear and the Bow. It will arrive in July almost two years after the release of rival Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon, which also featured a largely Scottish cast of rambunctious bruisers and a young hero who did not quite fit in. Brave is Pixar’s first fairytale, previously the preserve of the more traditional, less daring Disney (which bought Pixar in 2006). It even has a tough female protagonist known for her skill with a bow and arrow, echoing the plot of this year’s biggest blockbuster The Hunger Games. And yet from a few minutes into the half hour of preview footage journalists were shown in central London last month, it became clear that Brave is its own beast.
It offers a delightfully modern, feminist twist on the traditional fairytale princess narrative. Not only is Merida, voiced by Kelly MacDonald, unimpressed by the three suitors sent to battle for her hand in marriage, she’s quite capable of knocking all of them on their backsides. Her father King Fergus (voiced by Billy Connolly) is an enormous boisterous man-child with a peg-leg, rather than the bland, majestic figure one might expect from a Disney confection. It is left to the more statesmanlike queen (Emma Thompson) to make her feisty red-headed daughter aware of her duties – the entire kingdom is likely to go up in flames if Merida isn’t married – though one gets the impression that Fergus would probably be quite up for the ruck.”
