Splendid New Japanese Trailer And Poster For Brave

The Japanese trailer for Brave features lots of new footage, hints of several new plot elements, and some really breathtaking shots. Their new poster is nothing to be sniffed at either. And… judging from these, it seems that film is being called Merida in Japan. That promo seems to confirm a number of rumours about […]

Behind The Scenes Of Pixar’s Brave – Swords, Kilts And A Nice Lie Down

The making of Pixar’s Brave seems to have involved some lovely field trips, a bit of sword fighting and archery practice, and having a nice bowl of cheerios while wearing a kilt. I’m sure there were also some heated discussions in the sweatbox, a lot of hunching over computer monitors and several fiery sessions during […]

Characters Revealed (And Re-Revealed) On Pixar Brave Game Cards

Some of these images we’ve seen before, most we have not. What is particularly interesting is the inclusion of “Young” versions of the Lords, suggesting either flashback sequences or some kind of de-aging magic. UPDATE: Or just younger characters. They’re the sons, not the same people. I’m going to blame this memory lapse on the […]

Pixar’s Brave Concept Art And Sculptures – Images And Video

There’s a rolling exhibition of concept art and development pieces on display at Disney’s Hollywood Studios park at Walt Disney World. They’re in the midst of a changeover right now, as while the signage still tells visitors to expect Winnie the Pooh and Cars 2 works inside, they’ve already brought out the pictures and sculptures […]

Super Hi-Res Images From Pixar’s Brave And Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie

Go ahead and wallpaper yourself up with these images from Pixar and Tim Burton’s upcoming animated movies. I’ve seen about seven minutes of Frankenweenie and had a chance to explore the set and look at the models up close. Even still, I find this new image to be extraordinarily beautiful and alive. How can this […]

Disney Pixar Said To Be Having Legal Spat With Atlanta Baseball Team

The Walt Disney Company and Atlanta National League Ball Club are reported to be in negotiations, trying to sort out a thorny trademark issue. They’ve reportedly been taking meetings for months, and still the dispute continues. None of this would have happened had Pixar’s next picture not had a name change. Once it was being […]

It’s Here! New Trailer For Pixar’s Brave

They’ve recently been teasing us with images from their new animated film Brave, but now Pixar have finally released the new trailer for the film, a sort of fairy tale about a rebellious princess called Merida who screws the pooch in her quest for independence and subsequently plunges her entire kingdom into a chaos that she […]

Pixar’s Brave – LOTS Of New Images And Details (UPDATED)

Ahead of the new trailer for Pixar’s Brave, which will be released tomorrow, there’s a preview piece and new image online. The picture could be bigger and clearer, and I’ll have to update if I find a better version, but here’s what we have now: So that’s Queen Elinor, King Fergus, Princess Merida and triplet […]

There’s A Lot More To D23 Than The Avengers

I wasn’t going to post this until I saw Rich’s piece, but I feel the need for a minor corrective. I don’t think The Avengers is the only exciting thing at Disney’s D23 convention at all. Indeed, I don’t think it’s the most exciting thing. Or even the second most exciting thing. Other films being […]

Another Moody Image From Pixar’s Brave

Disney have issued yet another image from Pixar’s Brave. Even though we only get his foot, this is the best image of the bear yet. Of course, you get a look at his face in the trailer, though you’d probably want to pause it for a good scry. Anybody else suddenly fancy a sugary almond […]

Nice New Image Of Pixar’s Princess Merida, Interesting German Logo

In Germany, it seems that Pixar’s Brave will be known as Merida – Legende der Highlands. I can swing with that. It’s similar to how Tangled remained Raiponce in France, for example. Note: the image at the head of the post is a hi-res version of one appearing in this week’s Entertainment Weekly. Thanks to […]

Official Site For Pixar’s Brave Launches, Rocks Out On Bagpipes

What music could possibly play on the official site for Pixar’s Scotland-set folktale, Brave? Why, it’s none other than Scotland the Brave. Of course. The film’s score is going to be composed by Patrick Doyle – his first Pixar gig, and he’ll only be the fourth composer to score one of their features. I’m not […]

Four Character Images From Pixars Brave (And Sort Of A Fifth)- UPDATED

Here are four of the characters from Pixar’s Brave: Princess Merida, Queen Elinor, The Wise Woman and Lord MacIntosh. They will be voiced by Kelly MacDonald, Emma Thompson, Julie Walters and Craig Ferguson respectively. UPDATE: Images removed at request of Pixar. Wow. Great. And here, I think is a fifth character. This is The Bear, […]

Official Poster For Pixar’s Brave (And What’s This About John Carter Of Mars?)

Everything I said earlier still stands, we’ve just now got a nice, high quality version of the poster direct from Disney. The attached press information credits Brave director Mark Andrews as being a writer on John Carter of Mars. Not just John Carter. All change again? Makes sense of the M-glyph, anyway. I’ll ask Disney […]

See The Poster For Pixar’s Brave, Hear About Its Trailer

Next Summer, Pixar will release Brave, a highlands folk tale about the Princess Merida, and an enchanted bear. The first teaser trailer for the film, as expected, will be screening with Cars 2, and there’s already an early poster for the film. This was snapped by “nomad 2010“, but I found it at Upcoming Pixar. […]

First Image Of Merida From Pixar’s Brave

Here she is, in all her glory – the heroine of Pixar’s first female-led narrative, the Scotland-set folktale, Brave. This is the Princess Merida, as voiced by Kelly MacDonald. Disney Pixar France also provided this wider-framed version of the image. And here’s a concept art rendition of much the same thing: If you recall, the […]
