The first teaser trailer for Pixar’s Brave has been released and naturally, it looks incredible. The visuals are breathtaking, and it teases a darker tone than we’ve seen before from Pixar. Seriously, if the idea of the studio taking on a fairy tale set in the Scottish Highlands wasn’t enough to get you excited, that logline in visual form is fantastic.
Hit the jump to watch the teaser. 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.
Here’s the teaser trailer:
Here’s the official synopsis for Brave:
Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida is the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, Merida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom. In an attempt to set things right, Merida seeks out an eccentric old Wise Woman (Julie Walters) and is granted an ill-fated wish. Also figuring into Merida’s quest — and serving as comic relief — are the kingdom’s three lords: the enormous Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), the surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), and the disagreeable Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane).
