The studio behind the bulk of the past decade’s great animated films has released a full-length trailer for its next film. Brave, out next June, is Pixar’s first film to star a female protagonist (voiced by Boardwalk Empire‘s Kelly Macdonald).

This is an important film for Pixar, which is coming off a critical (though not financial) drubbing for this past summer’s Cars 2. It will be interesting to see how the film is received, given that it falls right into the long Disney tradition of using princesses for the primary female roles in its films. (Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin). Tell us what you think of the trailer in the comments below.
