Pixar’s “Brave” shares two exclusive images


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: As a Pixar fan (and who isn’t, right?), I’m anxiously awaiting next summer’s “Brave” for two key reasons.

First, I need the animation studio to wash the wretched taste of “Cars 2” out of my mouth. As the father of two boys – who, admittedly, don’t mind the sequel – I’ve had to endure the misguided effort on multiple occasions since the Blu-ray release, and it breaks my heart a little more every time I sit through what honestly feels like a slapped-together sequel.

Secondly, I’m excited for the studio to return to the realm of original storytelling. We’ve endured “Toy Story” and “Cars” sequels since Pixar produced “Up.” We have a “Monsters Inc.” prequel on the horizon. “Brave” appears to be a fresh story from the studio that used to crank out memorable fare, and I hope it puts them right back on the pedestal of family entertainment.

Empire has posted two exclusive images from “Brave.” One is above. The other is below. What is that blue light? Makes me wonder.

The film tells the story of Scottish archer Merida, whose parents – King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson) – want her to settle down. But Merida, seeking to march to her own drum, makes a decision that goes against her family’s culture, with significant ramifications.

“Brave” features the voices of Kelly Macdonald, Thompson, Connolly, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and Robbie Coltrane. It will be in theaters on June 22, 2012.
