Pixar releases new trailer for its next film, Brave


Now that Cars 2 has been released, Pixar is looking toward the future. A prequel to Monster, Inc., titled Monsters University is planned for June 21, 2013, an Incredibles sequel has been rumored, and earlier today Tom Hanks claimed that there will be a Toy Story 4. But while sequels are all well and good, Pixar has now gone two years without a new property. That will change next summer though, when it releases its next original film, Brave.

Brave is the story of Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer, and the daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Merida wants to make her own way in life, and in doing so she turns to an old witch (Julie Walters) who grants her a wish, which turns into a disastrous curse. She must then discover her own bravery to undo the curse while she can.

Check out the teaser below, which debuted in front of Cars 2. Brave also stars the voices of Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and Robbie Coltrane. It is set to hit theaters in 3D on June 22.
