It’s only a minute long, so you probably wonder why I bothered posting? I’m just so excited for “Brave” to hit theaters next summer. It’s the first girl protagonist in a Pixar film and it’s their first fairy tale. Instead of all the squeaky clean stuff, they’re going for more in the realm of Hans Christian Anderson and The Brothers Grimm fairy tales, according to co-director Brenda Chapman. I wish they took the same approach with the classics, but it would’ve made for a different childhood for all of us.
There’s already been a bit of drama with Mark Andrews being brought on as a co-director with Chapman, who was supposed to be the first female director of a Pixar film, and she’s reportedly no longer working on the project. She did co-write the story, however.
Check out the teaser below. If you can’t tell by the narration and scenery, it’s set in Scotland.
