With the new/updated synopsis, let's circle back to the concept art that Pixar put out a while ago:

Merida and the Queen are obvious, but who is that humongous-size man? Doesn't look like a king to me. Can he be one of the three lords mentioned today? What about the triplets? Is there any chance they're the three lords??? (outlandish, I know, but still, worth hypothesizing...)

No, I don't think so.

According to the articles, there are three lord, one of which is "the enormous Lord MacGuffin". That must be him. He (or maybe the three) might be antagonists. Or at least have the type.

We actuale had a debate about that in another board, I think the Cars 2 one, and that's one possibility, but I doubt it. First, because that would be more of a parody move, as pizza didn't exist on that time, and this looks like a very serious movie.

Second, we've always got the PP truck on it's original form. I would put it exactly like it is, but so tiny it's very difficult to spot for a casual viewer, avoiding the anachronism questions among the audience.

If the old press info is to be believed, Merida has triplet brothers, so I'm guessing those are them.

"To further clarify, characters from say Rio, Toy Story 3, Despicable Me and Kung Fu Panda look and act 'childish' in the sense that they have bright colour palettes and are prone to exaggerated movements. Characters from say, Akira, Rango, Legend of the Guardians, and Secret of the N.I.M.H. are more reserved and 'matured' in the way they act and look."

That's the silliest thing I've ever read. Especially in regards to that Owl movie and the juvenile rango. Toy Story is far more mature in it's themes and acting than any of the so called "mature" films you mention. Same goes for Toy Story 2 & 3, and Ratatouille, and Wall-e and Finding Nemo. Only those had great stories and great storytelling as well.

He was mainly referring to the way that they are designed and how they move, not the overall themes, and in that case he has a point. Just look at, say, the bathroom scene in TS3. Very exaggerated expressions and movements that would look out of place in the other movies he listed, although that's not to say that the others don't have intimate moments. No need to get personal about it.

I saw that right away, but it looks nothing like a bear to me. Some sort of mythical creature, maybe, but no way a bear.

Curious. I'm pretty sure it's a bear's silhouette.

Wow, looks good. This will really spark my interest up much more than Cars 2, which is not creating alot of interest to me, even though I liked the first one :/

Please read my post again. It appears you have misunderstood it. For the record, I think Rango is not a very 'kid-friendly' movie, and the 'Owl movie' has a proper name. And calling someone's opinion "silly" isn't very matured, bud. ;)

Thanks for the clarification Bryko, that's exactly what I meant. To anyone else who's misinterpreted me, just compare the character animation from Toy Story with say, Grave of the Fireflies. The former feels like a 'cartoon' (although like Bryko said, there are more intimate and 'grown-up' pensive moments) while the latter feels like a live-action movie. Once again, I'm speaking with respect to the character design and the animation, not the themes.

Wow, they're really pulling out all the stops here!

Anyway, great observation on the figure in the first picture, I didn't notice it! I think it looks like a giant owl, but then again it could be a wombat or something. 8D

I wonder whether the title 'Brave ' is an adjective like 'Tangled', or a noun like 'Mulan' (in the sense that the heroine's nickname will become 'Brave' by the end of the movie or something).

Remember the original title of the movie. We know a bear is central to the plot. I'm pretty sure it is this one. Can't wait to see him on CGI!

Sorry about the double post, but I just came across this one:

The horse looks awesome, but I'm still not feeling good about Merida. Must be that hair...
