We’ve only just had our first real look at Pixar’s Brave with the unveiling of the poster yesterday and now we’ve got an eyeful of the gorgeous character designs for Mark Andrew’s debut feature.
The four images below are of Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), the delightly twisted face of The Wise Woman (Blackadder fans fill in your own punchline here) who is voiced by Julie Walters, the flame haired Princess Merida (Kelly MacDonald) and finally we have Emma Thompson’s character Queen Elinor. Sadly we have to wait until the 17th of August next year to see this one come together.
Brave is set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, where Merida is the princess of a kingdom ruled by King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). An unruly daughter and an accomplished archer, Merida one day defies a sacred custom of the land and inadvertently brings turmoil to the kingdom. In an attempt to set things right, Merida seeks out an eccentric old Wise Woman (Julie Walters) and is granted an ill-fated wish. Also figuring into Merida’s quest — and serving as comic relief — are the kingdom’s three lords: the enormous Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), the surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson), and the disagreeable Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane).
Here are the images,
