Computer graphics are so sophisticated these days, it is possible to watch an animated feature and be convinced parts of it are actually live action. Based solely on about 60 seconds of the teaser, I think one will come away feeling like this world is real.
I’m especially impressed with the blades of grass, about half way through the video, and the hair on the horse’s fetlock as he enters that scene. Amazing.
The story itself is something of a fairy tale, set in ancient Scotland, and features a girl at the heart of the adventure. Originally, the film was to be called The Bear and the Bow, which gives away some of the story line. To learn more about the movie, check out Brave on Wikipedia.
Brave is expected to be released June 22, 2012, and be available in 3D in select theaters.
