Walt Disney Studios has provided us with its annual film preview for 2012 and, taking our cue from Gaston from Beauty and the Beast 3D (how’s that for a segue?), we can only make sense of reading material by the pictures. That said, while most of the imagery found in the preview has already been released, here’s a couple of images we didn’t readily recognize, nor did a cursory search turn them up.
First we have a shot of Merida from Disney/Pixar’s Brave, drawing back her bow at the archery competition designed to find her a proper suitor as others look on. Admittedly the resolution of this image is pretty harsh, so we hope to have a better one in the near future which we will add permanently to our gallery for the film. Brave is the grand adventure of Merida, a skilled archer who confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts to discover the true meaning of courage. It opens in theaters nationwide on June 22, 2012.
From Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie, comes this image of young Victor Frankenstein laying in bed while his faithful pup Sparky lays beneath it. A heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life — with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new ‘leash on life’ can be monstrous. Frankenweenie opens in theaters nationwide on October 5, 2012.
