What does Brave have in common with The Incredibles and UP? (besides being Pixar films). Brave will be the third Pixar film to receive a PG rating from the MPAA. In a recent bulletin the film was given the PG rating “for some scary action and rude humor”. That end bit may have something to do with the new kilt lifting trailer released last week.
If you have a look at the three films to receive a PG rating, the common theme is they all feature humans. It seems that if humans are put into any danger the film gets bumped up a rating. I don’t think that this will affect any sales as Pixar films are loved by both adults and children alike.
Alongside this news, Pixar released the first clip from the film, technically its the second clip as the third trailer trailer really a two and a half minute scene. As a treat I have also included some new concept art that has arrived on the internet. You can check out the trailer and concept art below:

Brave Concept Art + Images
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.
Brave will be released in theatres on June 22nd, 2012.
