MUST WATCH: New BRAVE Featurette Highlighting Merida **AND** The "ART OF BRAVE" Pre-order!!

Ok - NOW we're getting somewhere. I don't know why Pixar didn't start us off with more of this type of exposure to the world of BRAVE - because I am really liking what I am seeing now. Gorgeous!! THIS is the Pixar I know and love. Ignore the French subtitles as best you can - unless you're French of course!

I love that YouTube has embraced 3D too - though we aren't quite there yet for quality side by side stereoscopic viewing. Still if you don't mind anaglyph 3D, break out the old red and blue glasses! Definitely not for me though.

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 Wise Woman (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.

Pixar's BRAVE opens June 22.

Can't wait for this movie now! And yes, actually I do want to see more marketing for BRAVE - sounds strange considering how studios put out too much these days, but most of what I have seen thus far for this movie has not been up to par for me. THIS was so refreshing! More please!!
