With less than a month before Disney/Pixar’s Brave makes its theatrical debut, we are pleased to provide you with new concept art and storyboarding courtesy of Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios. In addition, we also have a few new concept art pieces which have been added to our constantly growing gallery provided below.
The rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland serve as the backdrop for Brave, a new tale that joins the land’s ancient lore — stories of epic battles and mystical legends passed down for generations. Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, 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.
First, we have two sets of travel progressions which demonstrate how real elements found in Scotland made their way to the film via photos and concept art. Here we see some of the forest as well as the mysterious standing stones.
Next is a storyboarding of the scene known as ‘The Prize’ in which Merida decides that if the first born of each of the clans is eligible to compete in an archery contest for her hand, then she is as well, much to the dismay of Queen Elinor.
Lastly, newly released concept art has been added to the beginning of our gallery below:
Brave shoots into theaters on June 22, 2012.
