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.
