A Japanese trailer for Pixar’s Brave has gone online. The American trailers have focused more on the comedy and the tomboy antics of the film’s heroine, Princess Merida (Kelly Macdonald), but the Japanese trailer gets deeper into the film’s plot. The tagline on the posters has been “Change Your Fate”, but the Japanese trailer actually explains how Merida attempts to do that. The Japanese trailer features loads of new footage and might be considered a tad spoilery, but I don’t think it gives away any major reveals as much as it clearly explains the major conflict (as opposed to the vague hints we’d been receiving thus far).
Hit the jump to check out the Japanese trailer (with English subtitles) plus the Japanese poster. Brave opens in 3D on June 22nd.

Here’s the official synopsis for Brave:
Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). 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 (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) 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.
