While Disney/Pixar are currently hyping Cars 2, down the road the animation powerhouse will release Brave, a tale set in the Highlands of Scotland.  Disney sent over some new concept art to give you a feel for the movie.

HIGHLAND OF THE “BRAVE” — The rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland serve as the backdrop for BRAVE, a new tale that joins the land’s ancient lore—stories of epic battles and mystical legends passed down for generations. Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, BRAVE is the grand adventure of Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer who confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts to discover the true meaning of courage.  The film also features the voices of Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and Robbie Coltrane.  BRAVE, full of heart, memorable characters and Pixar’s signature humor, takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

        Don’t assume we all know your acronyms. I’ll assume you didn’t mean Southern Oklahoma Technology Center and possibly that you meant Shadow of the Colossus instead.

    How long till the execs write it off because it skews too female? They like to do that, even when the real reason for a failure is obvious (see comments from them about “Mars Needs Moms”).

      Seriously. They did that with Tangled. It was a fantastic movie, but the marketing made me almost not want to see it. Just the fact that they had changed it from “Rapunzel” to “Tangled” made me think it was going to be too much like Shrek. But it was fantastic, despite it’s marketing. Disney needs to reign in their PR sometimes.

    You know what would really blow me away? If that wasn’t concept art, but actual film clips. That would be amazing, like The Secret of Kells. Come on PIXAR. You can do it.

      that would be a pretty drastic change of style for Pixar considering EVERYTHING else they’ve put out has been made in a way that it’s almost entirely interchangeable, a la the references to other Pixar films within each piece.

      But I agree it would be mad!
