Pixar's First Fairy Tale

It was only yesterday I posted about my favourite Pixar films, and that reminded me of a particular upcoming Pixar movie that I'm very excited about. It was initially announced as The Bear and the Bow, which you have to admit had a very fairy tale-like quality to it. But it was later changed to simply Brave, the thirteenth Pixar feature film slated for release on June 22nd, 2012.

As always (and to be expected), Pixar is not the type to repeat themselves, or to rehash anything they have done before. As of today, no trailer has been released, but here are some released stills from the movie and they are uh-mazing! I don't know if this is how the movie will turn out, but I sure hope so. It will be like watching a beautiful painting telling us a story.

The premise of the movie, as reported by Entertainment Weekly;
Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida (Kelly MacDonald) is the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, Merida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom. In an attempt to set things right, Merida seeks out an eccentric old Wise Woman (Julie Walters) and is granted an ill-fated wish. Also figuring into Merida’s quest — and serving as comic relief — are the kingdom’s three lords: the enormous Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), the surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), and the disagreeable Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane).
Yeap, sounds like it's right up my alley. With Billy Connoly and Craig Ferguson joining the cast, I imagine it's going to be Pixar doing what Pixar does best; an interesting story with a presentation that is a pure joy to watch.
