Pixar's "Brave"

Why isn't "Brave" showing at Cannes? Because the Scotland-set film will open the Edinburgh Film Festival just after its June 22 stateside release. I saw half an hour of Pixar's 13th film and first fairy tale, which will prove to be yet another top box office performer by summer's end. That's partly because in a summer of sequels and familar brand names, "Brave" will pop as one of the few originals. It's written by Irene Mecchi ("The Lion King") and co-director Brenda Chapman ("The Prince of Egypt"). "John Carter" writer Mark Andrews also co-directs.

Another thing: have you noticed how many archers are in movies these days, from Katniss Everdeen to Hawkeye? And Legolas will be back in "The Hobbit," and, eventually, Neytiri in "Avatar 2."

Here's a new trailer from "Brave": meet the family.

    yeah, agree. people will love this. brave looks strong even for pixar. a combo of the character depth/quality of subtext of finding nemo with the plot energy of toy story. it's also completely fresh otherwise. should rake. the best animation i've seen (from anyone). i want the action figures. (ps -- a good sign after cars 2. oof)
