So as Pixar fans (like me) know already, Brave will be released on the 22nd of June (which is also my birthday!), 2012. For those who haven’t seen them yet, here are the trailers, and a sneak-peek from “La Luna” (which has been nominated for animated short oscar) which will be shown right before Brave.

Additionally, the synopsis of Brave has also been released for those who want to know more:

“Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.”

Here is the link to the calendar, but for people who don’t want to bother, here are the individual monthly pages. I am really looking forward to the calendar for 2010. Click to full-view.

Toy Story 3

After 10 years of absence, Disney‘s Toy Story is back! It’s the sequel of the first and second in the series, and I guess it’s the best animation that represents and will continue to represent toys. All we know about the story in this one is that the toys are dropped off in a day-care center after their owner, Andy, leaves for college. I don’t know why I am happy about this, maybe it is because that Toy Story was a part of my childhood. Toy Story 3 will be released on June 18th, 2010. Here’s the released official teaser trailer:
