First Image from Pixar’s BRAVE

     May 26, 2011


The first image from Pixar’s Brave has hit the web. While this summer we’re getting another sequel from Pixar (Cars 2), next year the studio will release a wholly original fairy tale, Brave. The story centers on Princess Merida, a skilled archer who accidentally sets evil upon the Scottish highlands when she is granted an ill-fated wish. We got our first look at some concept art a while ago, which looked phenomenal, and this first image from the film mirrors one of those concept images.

Hit the jump to check out the image. The voice-cast includes Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson, Robbie Coltrane, and Julie Walters. Brave hits theaters June 22nd, 2012. The first teaser for the film is expected to be attached to Cars 2 when it opens on June 24th.

Here’s the image from Disney Pixar France (via Bleeding Cool):


And here’s a wider image:


Here’s the concept image for comparison:



  • Hunter D.

    She looks like a girl I fooled around with in college.

    Or Lily Cole.

    • Autumn

      Just googled Lily Cole based on your comment and you’re right. It’s absolutely uncanny.

      • Hunter D.

        Just to be clear, I wasn’t bragging about pulling a girl who looked like Lily Cole. The girl I had a fling with in college didn’t actually look that much like her. However, this cartoon character oddly looks like both Cole and my ex.

    Man Lily Cole should sue over it! lol.

    Why is the image so damn blurry?

  • felliniboy

    looks like Pixar was challenged by How To Train Your Dragon’s visuals(admit it, Toy Story 3 was better, but HTTYD had the best visuals for an animated movie, EVER! thank god for Roger Deakins).

    i’m psyched for this movie. Finally, i pixar fairy tale.
