New Brave Trailer

Just yesterday, Disney posted the new trailer for their upcoming Pixar project Brave (to be released this summer) on their Facebook page.

(Sorry this isn't the one actually from the Disney Facebook page - it wouldn't come up when I tried to put it into this post!)

For those of you unsure of what Brave is, here's a synopsis from the description of the video from Disney Facebook's page: "Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor. Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin, surly Lord Macintosh and cantankerous Lord Dingwall. Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late."

Now I have to say, this recent trailer makes me all the more excited to see it.

One, I love Merida's independent attitude, how even though her mother orders her to drop her bow, she lets loose her third arrow, splitting the one already on the target through the middle!  (Reminds me of a certain scene in Robin Hood....)

Two, well I was already excited to see it with the first trailer.  This is just extra icing on the cake.

I'm a big lover of fantasy and fairy tales (hence the big love of Disney Classics), and this fits into those two categories.  In fact, Brenda Chapman, the writer and co director of Brave, was inspired by Hans Christian Anderson and the Grimm Brothers when she wrote the screenplay (The Pixar Wiki).

And finally, who doesn't love Scottish accents?

What are you going to do about it?
