Posted November 16th, 2011 at 4:15 pm

Disney has released the first full-length trailer for Pixar’s next film Brave. Marking the first time the studio has produced a film with a female lead, Brave is the story of a princess skilled in archery who jeopardizes her father’s kingdom after defying a sacred custom. Brave is slated to release on June 22nd 2012.

Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida (Kelly Macdonald) 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).
