There’s a couple of new teaser images released for Pixar’s latest CG animated feature entitled Brave. Both of the images showcase protagonist Merida showing off how handy she is with a sword, her skills in weapons (and her desire to prove them) playing a huge part in the story.
The first of the images show Merida sparring with her father, King Fergus (voiced by Billy Connolly), with her mother Elinor (voiced by Emma Thompson) looking on. The trailers have not really provided enough details about the story, but judging from this image, King Fergus may be a little more tolerant of Merida’s thirst for challenge and adventure, owing to the fact that he himself is a proud warrior.
The second teaser image shows Merida brandishing a sword against an unseen threat, while people in the background attempt to subdue a grizzly bear. The two teaser images is a welcome improvement from previously released teasers since they focus on more action-oriented scenes, compared to the relatively boring still shot of Merida from the back.
Brave will open in the UK on August 17, 2012.
