Watch: Second Trailer For Pixar's BRAVE

So far so good with the latest reveal from Pixar's BRAVE. I have not been awed by what I've seen thus far, but the showdown that we knew was going to happen between mother (clearly the family's matriarch) and daughter hasn't disappointed yet.

I'm looking for a typical strong story from the Pixar / Disney gang. The characters seem strong enough and there certainly is some Scottish humor aptly injected giving solid winks to the highlanders.

I want to see more of the story now though. The characters have passed scrutiny somewhat but where's the peril? (The question reminds me of Monty Python's Holy Grail!) But seriously, I want to see what they are up against here. We have an idea of course from previous hints (see storyline below), but I need something a bit more solid visually.

So have a look and tell me what you think:

Here's the movie's storyline:
Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.

Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.

Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, “Brave” is a grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and the signature Pixar humor enjoyed by audiences of all ages. The film takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

A grand adventure full of heart, memorable characters and signature Pixar humor, “Brave” uncovers a new tale in the mysterious Highlands of Scotland where the impetuous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) defies an age-old custom and inadvertently unleashes chaos, forcing her to discover the meaning of true bravery before it’s too late.

You know the ol' arrow splitting an arrow has been done SO many times before. We all knew what was going to happen with that clip. I want something exciting! Is that too much to ask? I don't think so seeing as it's coming from Pixar...

BRAVE opens on June 22.
