At this point in time, studios are churning out any and all promotions they have for their summer tentpoles. TV spots, last minute trailers, and for the Internet savvy, featurettes. A new featurette for Brave has gone online.
Previous trailers for Brave have detailed the plot of the movie, but in this latest featurette, we are getting a profile of Princess Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald), who candidly describes the difficulties of juggling life as a princess and wanting to be a free spirit. However, her wish to be free from the restrictions of her mother and castle life unintentionally casts an evil curse on the kingdom.
The featurette not only focuses on the characteristics of the film’s heroine, it also shows her off her beauty and is a testament to the fact that living as royalty may not be as glamorous as it may seem. We also get a look at a creepy cauldron and a dark and terrifying black bear. Of course, let’s not forget the majestic look of the Scotland enviroment.
Check out the newest featurette for Brave from Yahoo! Movies:
With all the trailers that have been released in the past, this is the first time we are seeing an up close and personal look at Merida – which in this case is a good thing, since the marketing for Brave has been a little strange to say the least.
The featurette displays Merida’s yearning to be free from the tight grip of her rigid mother. Not even Merida’s hair escapes the sights of her mother, but Merida “likes it just the way it is”, free, full of life, and untamed.
The movie also features the voices of Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson, Robbie Coltrane, and Julie Walters. Brave opens in 3D on June 22nd.
