Pixar's Brave

Perfect.

The only thing I fear for this film is that they replaced the director because she wasn't following the commercial line of the studio. That happens even at Pixar. I hope the result is brilliant anyway, but they already kind of messed up Up. Anyway, I can't wait to see it.

I also hope Doyle writes something great. He can do "beautiful" and the execs at Pixar aren't the execs at Marvel.

I saw that trailer the other day, but it was a bootleg. Even then I thought it was amazing.

Anybody else think that trailer was awful? It was just another cliche and generic fantasy-adventure trailer. I'm sure the film will be good, but man that trailer is horrible.

I don't think the trailer is generic at all. Most of the trailers for adventure filsm are different, they tend to spoil the film and annoy with useless fades to black and ridiculous synthy choir noise, and to have ridiculous taglines as well.

This one is great in that it introduces the ambiance of the film, as well as the protagonist and what she's able to do. I also like how the narration ends with the title. It's short, sharp, and epic.

Wow, this looks fantastic. The atmosphere, the characters, the animation, the direction...

Really looking forward to this. And I can't wait to hear that celtic-influenced score!

I'll try not to see anything but this until the film.

But most of the times I'm can't help myself.

Could anyone be more appropriate for this than Patrick Doyle?

I'd wager this will be a "hella" score as the kids say these days. Or yesterday.

its strange... it doenst look like pixar

it doesnt mean it's bad or anything, just different to what they usually give us.

So all the complaint about tin tin, comparing it to pixar's artistic direction and it seems this is another photorealistic film with stylised characters :D

So Roald what do you think? :P

mmm:

Mark added: "The performances the actors bring to the part will definitely make it into the characters. You will see Billy Connolly in Fergus, Craig Ferguson in Lord Macintosh and Kevin McKidd in Lord MacGuffin. And Kelly is definitely in Merida.

"You will definitely see all their qualities, just not their faces."

does that mean they motion captured? Pixa always was proud of making al 100% animation. And it was one of their high points :/

BTW...how can you be making a 100% irish movie and call the protagonist like a spanish city! :P unless that is a common irish name and i am epic-fail mistaken

Pixar have changed their style on occasion. Stylistically, at least in their shorts. And as far as writing and overall direction go, the Brad Bird helmed features were a significant (and brilliant) departure from their usual norm.

Plus I think Doyle can do great things with this.

I don't read that as relating to motion capture. I think they just mean that rather than just having some actors voice fully conceived characters, they took the actors' mannerisms and personalities into account when creating the characters. Like the dragon in Dragonheart was consciously modelled after Sean Connery.

BTW...how can you be making a 100% irish movie and call the protagonist like a spanish city! :P unless that is a common irish name and i am epic-fail mistaken

Irish!?

The dad sounds like Patrick Doyle. No, really -- did you all listen to that long video interview a month or so ago?

I seriously doubt it's going to be as good as Tintin.

The Pixar films I would say are better than Tintin are the Toy Story trilogy, WALL·E, and maybe Monsters inc and The Incredibles (although I prefer the Tintin ending to the Incredibles ending).

Ugh, everything about this film looks bad. I can't decide if the teaser or the second trailer was worse.
