i honestly think BRAVE is my #3 pixar now, behind WALL-E and UP. it may even be tied with UP…it was just so emotional for me. there wasn’t one second of it where i was like, ‘i don’t like this.’ i liked everything.
i think maybe the animation wasn’t up to the standard of WALL-E or UP, but for me the storytelling was just as strong and the characterization was some of pixar’s very best.
omg juan are we gonna get in a fight right now. I WILL FIGHT YOU. with my mighty celtic hair.

i don’t understand…do you not have a soul or something
chriscinephile asked: have you seen Brave? If so, what are your thoughts?
I haven’t seen it yet, no. Hopefully I will this week.
Brave director Mark Andrews said of the teaser trailer,
What we want to get across [with the teaser] is that this story has some darker elements… Not to frighten off our Pixar fans — we’ll still have all the comedy and the great characters. But we get a little bit more intense here.
Here’s the synopsis:
Set in the mystical Scottish Highlands, Brave stars Kelly Macdonald as Merida, 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).
