Brave:

I LOVE their teasers! It's just that their earlier ones had noticably funnier humor, or ANY humor at all. This one for Brave does what it needs to though.

Yep, I am more convinced than ever that I'll love this film, especially since IMO Pixar movies are better than their trailers imply. Less than a year to go. cool

I saw the poster today.

Tell me, is it a bad thing that the first thing that crossed my mind after seeing it was the Nac Mac Feegle? tongue
Here you go. A shiny, official Brave trailer!

Am I the only one who thinks about Princess Mononoke when watching this trailer? tongue
 
I peedl'd.

THIS IS GOING TO PUSH THE PROFITS THROUGH THE ROOF!

Holy crap, this is a Pixar movie with a very good chance of blood! And death! It's probably most definitely going to be at least PG, by the trailer alone, and Pixar may not even shy away from a PG-13 rating, although that is a bit unlikely. I am so, so psyched to see Pixar's wisdom and compassion deal with darker topics than their normal fare. Most of their movies are about friendship, loyalty, and growing up, but this looks to be more about hard choices, and taking responsibility for your actions, and bravely dealing with unforseen consequences. It's about being an adult. Hell yeah! grin

Transformers 4?!
Holy crap, DO WANT!

Also, maybe it's just me but am I the only one who is starting to compare it with How to Train Your Dragon? I mean, it's way too early I know, but it kind of reminds me the spirit of that film

Awwwwwsome. *_*

Also, I heard that Patrick Doyle is the composer. You know what that means.

Up on Cartoon Brew in 87... 86... 85...

The music in the trailer was already pretty awesome. And I agree that it seems a bit like How to Train Your Dragon, but I expect it to be darker than that movie. Think about its original trailer and compare it to Brave.

Yeah, the moment I heard "scottish highlands" How to Train Your Dragon popped up in my mind but that's only because HTTYD is admittedly my favorite movie and I'm also pretty sure this movie has absolutely nothing in common with it =P

Does anyone have a good idea of when this movie is set? Is it pre-Christian Scotland? Celtic mythology seems to feature a lot.

I think it's supposed to be somewhat like historic Scotland, yet it takes place in a FANTASY world.

That is one compelling trailer.

This film has kind of reminded me of HTTYD ever since I saw the first concept art images that were released. It's not like HTTYD and Brave are exactly the only medieval European fantasy/fairytale stories in existence - there are probably about a bazillion of those - but when we are speaking of that genre/setting/whatever seen in modern CGI animation, there's suddenly a lot less to pick from, and then Brave will remind people of HTTYD.

Random: The third character pic at http://twitchfilm.com/news/2011/06/meet-the-characters-of-pixars-brave.php made me go "wait, what's a Feegle doing here" for a second before my brain caught up with me.

I hope this film doesn't have one of those annoying forced snarker character types.

It looks like it may be pre-Christian in plot, but more post-Christian in aesthetics... It's hard to tell with the clothing so far, but I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of it turns out looking like 12th-14h century or thereabouts.

I hope Patrick Doyle doesn't copy the Zimmer style like he did in Thor. That was probably his worst score to date.
It's easy, mmkay?
Lord MacGuffin has captured my interest.

It certainly looks gorgeous. Man alive, I hope it lives up to expectations. A lot of the people who grew up on Pixar films are old enough for something darker and grittier now.

It's a great transition, that they picked now to make their movies a bit darker and deeper. Like, in the past few years we got WALL•E, Up, and Toy Story 3, all of which were pretty powerful films that would appeal to adult audiences. Ignoring Cars 2, Brave could be culmination of the trend of Pixar movies more or less growing up with their audiences.

Found this synopsis on io9.com: Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida is the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, Merida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom. In an attempt to set things right, Merida seeks out an eccentric old Wise Woman (Julie Walters) and is granted an ill-fated wish. Also figuring into Merida's quest - and serving as comic relief - are the kingdom's three lords: the enormous Lord MacGuffin (Kevin Mc Kidd), the surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), and the disagreeable Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane).
