The nerds at Pixar are finally comfortable enough around girls to have one star as the protagonist in one of their films. This teaser for Brave gives us our first look at Princess Merida in action and it looks incredible.

Watch as she journeys through the mystical Scottish Highlands (no sign of Christopher Lambert here) and runs through Woodland Sound FX Vol. One before encountering a fearsome, towering bear. Rather than shriek and recoil from danger like those other Disney princesses, she gets all gangsta and pulls back her bow to slay the beast. I hope that arrow was dipped in bear-repellent. At any rate, lookin’ good Pixar!

Pixar produces almost all quality stuff, with this summer’s Cars 2 as a possible future exception or “futureption.” So it’s always awesome to see what they’re working on, like this newly released image from their upcoming film Brave. Check out the bow-wielding redhead named Merida below, who’s destined to be shooting arrows at children from a parade float at Disneyland.

The story takes place in the Scottish highlands, where Merida will discover “the true meaning of courage” by battling beasts. I dunno, if I were her, I would just snipe the beasts from a safe distance and learn the meaning of absolutely nothing. At least I would live another day, which would make a movie about me – snacking on the sofa, blogging for Screen Junkies – way more interesting.

Stills from yet-to-be-completed films never really tell you the whole story, but instead sort of tease the intended audience to get them excited for the movies they’ll be paying to see in several months. Well, we’ve got a double shot of that this morning with the newest from both Pixar and Martin Scorsese.

First up is Pixar’s Brave, a movie befallen by some turmoil recently, including the exit of its lead voice actress, Reese Witherspoon (she’ll be replaced by Kelly McDonald), and the firing of the company’s first female director, Brenda Chapman. Nevertheless, it looks lush, gorgeous, and unlike any Pixar film we’ve ever seen.

Next up is an intriguing still from Martin Scorsese‘s Hugo Cabret, a kids film produced by Johnny Depp, who as this photo reveals, is also acting in the film as well. Depp will play Monsieur Rouleou, a painter who helps the young protagonist on his journey. Depp shot seven scenes for the film, and can be seen in the image below putting his famous goatee to use Hugo Cabret is in theaters this holiday season.
