Behold your new Pixar princess, the wily red head Princess Merida. Watch as she fiercely shoots down giant bears on horseback, glorious red mane whipping behind her. Great galloping Scots!

Here's the official synopsis — but as we all know there's usually much more than meets the eye with these Pixar productions:

Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse.

Brave was originally directed by Brenda Chapman (The Prince of Egypt) who was later replaced by Mark Andrews (head of story on The Incredibles). Even though Chapman was replaced, I hope her input is still in there — Egypt was fantastic and terribly underrated.

Brave will hit theaters on June, 22nd 2012.
