Disney and Pixar released a new 60-second Mother's Day Promo Spot for their upcoming animated pic "Brave," which follows Merida, a free-spirited Scottish princess with a propensity for archery. This new preview focuses on the relationship between Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) and her mother, Queen Elinor (voiced by Emma Thompson). The film opens nationwide on June 22nd.
Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late.
