If you can’t make it to a digital projection showing of Disney/Pixar’s Cars 2 anytime soon and if you happen to read this before someone from Disney’s legal department does, a moviegoer has opted to make a video recording of the Brave teaser trailer.
Despite the fact that the teaser trailer is in 3D and the camera is not and it appears that the bootlegger is about the size of a smurf, it’s not unwatchable from a quality perspective, but be forewarned that he’s no Jerry Seinfeld.
It’s also worth noting that one Pixar animator has noted on Twitter that it will not be available online officially, so this may be your only opportunity for those that don’t wish to see Cars 2.
In honor of the Brave teaser attached to digital projection versions of Cars 2 now in theaters, Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios are presenting an official good first look at Merida, the heroine in their next film, Brave (formerly The Bear and the Bow). Although Entertainment Weekly is debuting the image in their latest issue, we have been very fortunate to acquire an online version of the image in glorious high resolution. We’re so happy to be able to share this image with you, in fact, that we are presenting it in the same resolution we received it, which is larger than what we typically share.
Here is what’s believed to be the first still from Disney/Pixar’s Brave (formerly titled The Bear and the Bow). Featuring the film’s heroine, Merida, the image appears to be directly related to concept art that was previously released.
Yesterday, we were one of the first to bring you hi-res concept art from Disney/Pixar’s original fairy tale, Brave. Today, we are pleased to bring you yet another additional image for the film. The new concept art image has been added to the beginning of our gallery of concept art below.
Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with this hi-res concept art from its summer 2012 release, Brave (originally titled The Bear and the Bow).
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 (voice of Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer who confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts to discover the true meaning of courage. The film also features the voices of Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and Robbie Coltrane. Brave, full of heart, memorable characters and Pixar’s signature humor, takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios cast member Paul Chadkin spotted and photographed the first known title artwork for Disney/Pixar’s Brave today in poster form at the park’s Animation Building. Note that the logo for the film (originally titled The Bear and the Bow) has been modified from the original photo for its presentation here and may or may not properly represent the true artwork.
Pixar animator Chris Chua noted that Princess Merida (Reese Witherspoon) and her mother, Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson) are prominently represented in the logo here as well (pay special attention to the detail in the lettering).
During an otherwise reportedly lackluster presentation by Walt Disney Studios President Rich Ross, Disney has formally announced the upcoming releases of Pixar’s Brave (formerly The Bear and the Bow, the news of the re-dubbing we first broke here) to be released on June 15, 2012 and the long anticipated sequel, Monsters Inc 2 which currently carries a release date of November 16, 2012.
UPDATE: Following our initial report on the domain name and trademark registrations, Disney has also gone ahead and registered a few trademark applications specifically for DISNEY PIXAR BRAVE. Here’s an example. Note although the application was filed on March 12, it takes a few days for it to become accessible to us.
