Disney Studio All Access Finally Launching This Month? (Introducing Disney Everywhere’s Movie Cloud)

Disney Studio All Access for iPhone DevicesNow that Disney (NYSE:DIS) has finally gotten its ‘TV Everywhere’ initiative off the ground, as we first reported earlier this month — with even more networks such as ABC Family on the way, along with cable providers beyond Comcast — the focus now shifts to Disney’s extensive film collection.

An announcement made last week on Disney Movies Online has raised some eyebrows, causing some to ponder if DSAA/Keychest’s time has finally arrived. Certainly the changes coming to DMO on June 27 are worth the contemplation: accounts for those under 13 not permitted; accounts only for United States users; and a slew of films that won’t be available for viewing online for the foreseeable future.

‘Brave’ Clip Brawl

'Brave' Teaser Poster from Disney/PixarCourtesy of Walt Disney Studios New Zealand and Pixar Animation Studios, we have a newly released clip from Brave, which bows into theaters on June 22, 2012.

The clip, titled ‘Brawl,’ overlaps just a bit with the previously released ‘Suitors‘ clip. In the latter clip, we are introduced to Young Macintosh, Young MacGuffin and Wee Dingwall as they are presented to King Fergus and Queen Elinor for consideration of Princess Merida’s hand in marriage. The new clip carries the scene even further with an ensuing brawl that the bear king is forced to put an end to, though a certain set of triplets don’t necessarily seem to agree with that logic.
