Trailer for Pixar’s Brave—Featuring Their First Female Lead!

by Ariana Anderson

After 12 feature length films, Pixar is introducing its first female lead in Brave. Though the protagonist, Merida, is a Scottish princess, she does not wait around in towers to be saved. In fact, she appears to have a will of her own, defies her parents, takes matters into her own hands, does physical fighting, and is generally ‘brave,’ as the title suggests.  She even does archery and fights off bears—pretty badass.

It’s also their first to be co-directed by a woman, Brenda Chapman. According to IMDB, Merida will be voiced by Kelly Macdonald. As for her parents, Emma Thompson will be voicing the queen and Billy Connolly the King. Brave is set to release next summer.
