While the first poster for Pixar’s **Brave came online late last week, something far more exciting has arrived. Yes, after playing in front of Cars 2 at US cinemas this weekend, the Brave teaser trailer is now online and can be played below for your gawping pleasure.

The story, of course, focuses on the spirited princess, a skilled archer and daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Headstrong and forthright and burning to make her own way in the world, Merida defies an ancient custom, throwing everything into chaos and fury in the kingdom. Turning to an old Wise Woman (Julie Walters), Merida hinders, rather than helps, the situation and must go on a journey to put things right.

While the film has had its share of controversy (with original co-writer/director Brenda Chapman replaced by Mark Andrews), on the evidence of this, it would seem the Pixar bods might just have produced yet another wonderful adventure. Anyone surprised?

Brave will arrive on these shores on August 17, 2012.
