333...Disney Pixar's Brave

Here is a quick look at Disney Pixar's new movie 'Brave' coming in the summer 2012.  The trailer doesn't show much but I have come to trust Pixar.

Synopsis from Apple's website...

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In "Brave," a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. 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.

Jules here -

Speaking of "trusting Pixar", have you ever read the book "The Wisdom of Pixar"? It is by Robertt Velarde and put out by InterVarsity Press ISBN #9780830832972 (sorry, just had to put that on there for old Gospeland memories of looking up books - ha). It is "an animated look at virtue", "Robert Velarde unpacks the movies of Pixar and shows how they display the best of classic Christian virtues..."
