Brave Poster Online
Pixar gets mythic...

When US audiences head to cinemas this weekend to see Pixar’s latest offering, Cars 2, they’ll also be treated to the first look at the teaser trailer for the company’s fairytale adventure, Brave, which will make its own trip to theatres in about a year. Chances are the teaser will hit the ‘net around the same time, but the poster is already here, and you can view it below.

To see the image full-size at Entertainment Weekly, click on the image above.

Entertainment Weekly got the scoop on the image, which features the central character, Scottish princess Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) and some imposing stone structures lurking in the mist. “We can’t say what happens there, but they were inspired by an actual location in Scotland that we visited multiple times during our research,” Brave’s producer Katherine Sarafian tells the magazine. “It was a very powerful setting for the kind of things we want to have happen in the story.”

That plot involves the headstrong Merida jeopardising her father (Billy Connolly)’s kingdom with her impetuous actions, and realising that she’ll have to sort out the resulting chaos.

Look for Brave to dig into some deeper and darker themes than even Pixar normally explores, too. Though considering how dark some of Toy Story 3 got, that’s saying something...

Oh, and talking of that teaser trailer? Empire got a look at it a few days ago and can attest that while it only contains a flavour of the movie, the visual style in particular is painterly and utterly captivating. We’ll have the footage for you just as soon as it hits the web.

The Celts Arrive
After the success of 'The Secret of Kells' its great to see that pixar are cashing in on Celtic mythology and legends... After all the stories from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of man, Cornwall and Brittany have inspired the likes of The Lord of The Rings to 2000AD's Sláine... Celtic legends are as in depth as any Greek or Roman tale More

Sounds a bit more like a Studio Ghibli movie. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing. More
