PIXAR’s next release is nearly upon us, and we are getting a bit more artwork to support that release. Pixar just popped up with some new posters for Brave, and a little bit more of a look at the new characters that come with the story.
Brave is a fresh fairy tale that takes place in rugged and mythic Scotland. The impetuous, tangle-haired Merida, though a daughter of royalty, would prefer to make her mark as a great archer. A clash of wills with her mother compels Merida to make a reckless choice, which unleashes unintended peril on her father’s kingdom and her mother’s life. Merida struggles with the unpredictable forces of nature, magic and a dark, ancient curse to set things right.
The new posters feature Princess Merida, King Fergus, Queen Elinor, Witch, Lord MacGuffin, Lord Macintosh and Lord Dingwall.
Disney has a lot of hope resting on Brave’s shoulders, what with the cash suck that was John Carter. Pixar has a strong record of hits, and Disney’s coffers look to need that stimulus to counteract the reported 200 million dollar bath that Carter reportedly cost. Ironically, John Carter was directed by PIXAR alum Andrew Stanton.
Brave is set for a June 22, 2012 release.
