Courtesy of Disney Pixar France comes the first actual look at Princess Merida from Pixar’s upcoming film Brave. It’s the first Pixar film to feature a female lead (voiced by Kelly MacDonald), and the first to be co-directed by a woman (Brenda Chapman who left the project midway through but is still getting co-credit).
Brave, which is set “in the mystical Scottish Highlands,” and will inevitably be called Pixar’s Mulan should be getting a teaser trailer attached to Cars 2, and has a tentative release date for June 22, 2012. Here’s to hoping this is more Pixar doing Braveheart, because that would be rad. [via bleedingcool]
