The big box office news this past weekend was the success of Pixar's latest release, "Cars 2," in the face of less-than-friendly critics. In the wake of this triumph, the studio has released the trailer for its next film, "Brave," which is due to hit theaters next June.
The movie -- which takes place far from "Cars's" Radiator Springs, in the Scottish Highlands -- brings us Pixar's first-ever female protagonist: a flame-haired princess called Merida. Entertainment Weekly has more:
It’s Pixar Animation Studio’s first fairy tale fantasy, and it marks yet another change of pace for the venerable dream factory. “What we want to get across [with the teaser] is that this story has some darker elements,” director Mark Andrews tells EW. “Not to frighten off our Pixar fans — we’ll still have all the comedy and the great characters. But we get a little bit more intense here.”
