Who likes Pixar movies? Hahahahaha *deep breath* hahahahahahaha, just kidding. Everyone likes Pixar movies.
Pixar’s newest outing into “We do everything better” is a movie called Brave. And it looks awesome. Plus, the main character looks just like one of our own IHoG writers (you can see her articles here).Please enter the url to a YouTube video.
I haven’t been a fan of Pixar’s Cars movies, but I was a huge fan of Up, so seeing them using humans again is pretty exciting. I’m sure it will be incredible.
Hit the jump for some more details!
Currently Brave is scheduled for a summer 2012 release, and the synopsis according to Wikipedia is…
“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 (Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (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 (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (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.”
This will be Pixar’s first fairy tale so consider me sold. They are also pursuing a style like the Hans Christian Anderson stories and the Brothers Grimm tales, rather than a light fluffy hearted romp. If you have ever read the Brothers Grimm stories some of them get very dark and even morbid at times, though I doubt Pixar will go quite that far.
Anybody else pumped?
