Simple, elegant and whimsical. All three words accurately describe this one minute teaser for Pixar’s next original work, Brave. Disney and Pixar released it today, mostly in celebration of the success it’s having attached to Cars 2, which won a decisive victory at the box office this weekend. With all the talk of Pixar sequels, including revelations about a fourth Toy Story film, it’s even more delightful to see them working on something not based on previously existing material. In this brief tease we meet Princess Merida, a Scottish warrior princess who will be voiced by Kelly MacDonald. She’s got red hair, a bow and arrow and she’s about to take down a bear. That’s one badass lady.
