OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH it’s the next Pixar movie! I didn’t realise we were so close too seeing previews for their next movie. It’s only out in 2012, and most probably a June/ July release, but still EXCITING. It’s about a Scottish princess, Merida, who defies her parents by pursuing an interest in archery, and inadvertently jeopardizes her father’s kingdom in the process. The story sounds exciting, different to the usual Pixar, when I say different I mean ………… crud I don’t know. If we look at what Pixar has previously produced, this movie is different because firstly it’s not about toys, insects, animals, monsters, cars or superheroes. Brave will be Pixar’s second fully human cast, fourth movie to have humans (Monster’s Inc, The Incredibles and Andy in Toy Story 3). This movie will also be different because it is drawing on cultural history. If you look at the worlds which Pixar has created, most of them are in nature, the ocean of Nemo, the rocky mountains of Cars, the anthill in Bugs, they have not used places or things that possess a cultural history, except maybe Barbie, she has a history. Brave’s story seems to follow a more Disney approach, that of a fairytale, although one could say that Brave is different because it could be viewed as something imitating a myth or a legend rather than a fairytale. But I’m getting waaaaaaayy ahead of myself, let’s just look at the trailer and artwork for now and squeeee at its awesomeness.
……..are you excited yet? 🙂
