Nope, you won't find Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Lightning McQueen or Mater (thank god) here. Pixar returns to cinemas in 2012 with "Brave," their first effort in three years that isn't a sequel, and they are putting a lot on the line. It's the first movie from the fabled animation studio to feature a female protagonist, and moreover it's a mystical period adventure which is always a hard sell no matter how old you are. But so far, it's looking pretty good and a new Japanese trailer (with a seemingly too literal English subtitles) serves up a lot more new footage from the film.

Nope, you won't find Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Lightning McQueen or Mater (thank god) here. Pixar returns to cinemas in 2012 with "Brave," their first effort in three years that isn't a sequel, and they are putting a lot on the line. It's the first movie from the fabled animation studio to feature a female protagonist, and moreover it's a mystical period adventure which is always a hard sell no matter how old you are. But so far, it's looking pretty good and a new Japanese trailer (with a seemingly too literal English subtitles) serves up a lot more new footage from the film.

Featuring the voice talents of Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson, Julie Walters and Kevin McKidd, the story, set in the Scottish highlands in years gone by, focuses on Princess Merida, the daughter of the rulers of the kingdom who defies a sacred custom of the land and unintentionally brings turmoil to the kingdom. In order to try and set things right, she goes to a Wise Woman and is granted a wish that may be more than she bargained for. Basically, she breaks the rule of the enchanted forest (or something) and then must go on a quest or whatever to set things right. There are also some magical blue orbs that play a vital role of some kind.

But it does look to be a big, grand scale adventure, the kind of we expect from Pixar and so we remain optimistic that is yet another bold venture into original storytelling from the studio. "Brave" arrives on June 22nd. Watch below. [via Bleeding Cool]
