Pixar: Brave Teaser Trailer
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 Witch (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.
Everyone is rude, inconsiderate, selfish and seem to be either insulting or murdering each other.
Despite this and maybe because I live in a chaotic city, amongst millions of people. I am regularly struck by the wonderful things that we do: It may be art, music, an incredible piece of engineering, or just a passing gesture.
So; this blog isn't really intended for anyone else. It is a daily reminder to myself of the things that we do that don't make me hate humankind.
