First look at Pixar’s Brave

You’ve seen the back of Brave hero Princess Merida in the teaser poster. Now, see her front! OK, that sounds a bit weird for a Pixar film…

Slashfilm have a high resolution image from Pixar’s upcoming flick, featuring our hero Princess Merida (voiced by Kelly McDonald).

Here’s the official plot synopsis:

“Set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, Brave stars Kelly Macdonald as Merida, the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, Merida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom. In an attempt to set things right, Merida seeks out an eccentric old Wise Woman (Julie Walters) and is granted an ill-fated wish. Also figuring into Merida’s quest — and serving as comic relief — are the kingdom’s three lords: the enormous Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), the surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), and the disagreeable Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane).”

Formerly titled The Bear and the Bow, the film was to be helmed by co-writer Brenda Chapman, and would mark Pixar’s first film by a female director. She was later replaced by Mark Andrews.

Brave arrives in cinemas mid-2012, with Pixar’s Monsters University following in 2013.
