A new trailer for Disney-Pixar's Brave is available, revealing a little more of the Highland-set story line. In it, we see a lot more of the dynamic between impetuous heroine Merida (Kelly Macdonald), her indulgent father King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and more restrictive mother Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). There's also more light shed on the exact nature of Merida's rebellion - she's trying to avoid marrying one of the unappealing sons of Scottish noblemen - and the conflict at the heart of the film, which revolves around a hastily-made wish gone awry (don't they always?).
The film is set for release on Fri 22 Jun in the States; UK audiences will have to wait until Fri 17 Aug. However, Scottish cinema-goers will get a chance to catch the UK premiere of Brave when it closes the Edinburgh International Film Festival on Sat 30 Jun.
