Brave:

Read some EW. Lasseter states that the idea of a spy car movie dates as far back as the first Cars, which continues Pixar's tradition of never producing anything for no reason! A deleted scene had Lightning and Sally talk in a public area with a film playing in the background that featured a stunt car named Finn Mc Missile! :O

I don't love Pixar. I can accept them for being technically good, but it's something about their maudlin sentimentality combined with the plasticness of their output that just leaves me cold.

What I meant is it would horrifically sad if Brave either jumped the shark or started a Dork Age and the worst part is, it's quite plausible considering Pixar has never done fairy tale with a girl lead so they could mess it up. Pixar has after all made so many good ones that eventually a slip-up is inevitable
Nichts hier auch, tut mir leid.
I was not very interested about the idea. But after seeing the sort of hate dumb this movie is getting so prematurely I may go watch it just to make them go mad.

Hatedumb? Where? I have heard nothing but "THIZ IZ GOING 2 B AWESUM!". The ONLY negetivity is from the firing of Brenda Chapman, and even then people want to give the movie a shot before saying "It SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS!"

I do not hate it, in fact I love the idea, it hits close to home for me. I only fear something could go wrong, just like I do with any company/director that has done so well.

M. Night Shyamalan was one of the best directors out there, until The Village that is, Tim Burton is one of my favorites and while I can't find a single film I didn't like, I can't say I'd wanna watch Planet of the Apes or Sleepy Hollow so much.Rob Reiner, Joel Schumacher, Zack Snyder were all brilliant directors, until that one movie came along

Therefore it could happen to Pixar

Is this really what I have to look forward to? Coming into Pixar threads and having people gloom and doom over when they will supposedly Jump the Shark?

When did this happen? Seriously, what?

Seriously what. But not in the way you think.

Where do you get this negativity? I see 5 people out of 20 being negative and we go "We are drowining in haters"

You know what? You're right. I overreacted. Guess it's time to sleep.

First poster has been revealed and a teaser trailer is in front of Cars 2, so that will be coming soon too. It's really looking wonderful. http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/motion-captured/posts/new-brave-teaser-poster-sets-a-strong-tone-for-pixars-next

Oh poo I wanted to upload it.

Ah well, it is indeed amazing! Look at the detail, jeez. And the colors sure work well together. Scenery Porn at its best. Can't wait for more on the movie ^_^.

I have no idea why, but I really like the Wise Woman's smattering of chin hairs.
I think this could be a Jumping the Shark moment, but it's highly unlikely. I trust Pixar with novel concepts now. Sure, Cars was not the best Pixar film ever, but it took a pretty ridiculous sounding concept and made it work. And this story doesn't even soud remotely ridiculous. It'll be good, I'm almost positive.

I showed this to a friend and he said that it seemed pretty dark for Pixar. That's true - and that's why I am so, so excited for this. It seemed that Pixar stories often had their wisdom and power and emotional impact slightly blunted by the fact that they were aimed at very young kids. They still get me misty-eyed, but the staff at Pixar are capable of more than just that - they're capable of making me think, or making me outright cry. And if they aim Brave at an older age group, they could acheive that.

She looks so.... so young. I thought she'd be in her later teens.

I love looking at concept art, always has that fresh vibe to it.

I think she looks sixteen or so, and she could easily be one of those people who just have a young-looking face. It's unlikely, but possible, that's she's actually something like twenty years old. Her actions and personality will show us that.

But looking at the released art, I noticed something interesting for Disney women: it looks like she has a substantial body. It's believable that she's an Action Girl, and it's not Waif-Fu or superpowers. It may just be some clothes, but Merida looks like she has some real muscle.

Is it just me, or does Elinor look like Mulan's long-lost sister?

Re: age, Merida (man, I love that name) looks like she's anywhere from fifteen to twenty to me. Despite her round face, her higher cheekbones suggest a bit more age to me.

The fact there's no sign of a Prince in this movie has me optimistic for this being an Action Princess movie, but at the same time, I'm terrified about what'll happen to poor Merida when she's assimilated into the Disney Princesses and stripped of all that Action Girl-ness.

Will she meet Dreamfinder and Figment? They look pretty cool now!
"Doorknobs: not actually that long a period of historical significance."
@Figment Jedi: I don't think Disney has been quite that bad in recent years. They don't try to hide Mulan's badassery, as far as I've seen, although I admit I don't may much attention to the merch. And Zapunzel and Tiana are great, strong characters in their own right. As for the Pixar ladies, none of them have been the main character, which is a shame, but all of them are pretty cool - Jessie, Hellen Parr, Ellie, EVE, etc. There is precedent for badassery in both the Disney princesses and the Pixar women.

Have Pixar characters ever crossed into the Disney Princess line before?

[up][up] There's a difference between the Princess line and the actual films though. And Mulan only ever shows up in something like the dress she went to the Matchmaker in. Discussion over Rapunzel's initiation on DV Dizzy is what's been getting me worried. http://www.dvdizzy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=27888&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=1200
