It's been a bit of a disappointing 2011 for Pixar fans. The famed animation studio spent the year spinning its wheels both creatively and figuratively "Cars 2," the second straight sequel from the studio built around orginal ideas, with two "Toy Story" shorts making their way to theaters as well. But don't worry, 2012 finds the company not only returning with their first original film since "Up," it will also the first picture from Pixar to feature a female protoganist. And in case you doubted that Pixar still had the goods, the newest trailer for the film that just hit Facebook is as dazzling and exciting as you might expect.

It's been a bit of a disappointing 2011 for Pixar fans. The famed animation studio spent the year spinning its wheels both creatively and figuratively "Cars 2," the second straight sequel from the studio built around orginal ideas, with two "Toy Story" shorts making their way to theaters as well. But don't worry, 2012 finds the company not only returning with their first original film since "Up," it will also the first picture from Pixar to feature a female protoganist. And in case you doubted that Pixar still had the goods, the newest trailer for the film that just hit Facebook is as dazzling and exciting as you might expect.

Starring 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. And yes, as that synopsis suggests, this is unlike anything Pixar has done before. A period based fantasy film, with a epic scope a pretty grand sense of adventure. Another winner from Pixar? It sure seems that way.

"Brave" opens on June 22, 2012. Watch the trailer below as well as some new images from the movie courtesy of Empire.
