Disney Pixar's Brave trailer has been finally been released after a teaser trailer leaked a few months ago.

This marks Pixar's 13th movie, featuring female protagonist, Merida, as she confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts.

Pixar is extremely excited about this installment as it is the studio's first fairytale, with a twist.

She's your anti-princess, said Brave co-director Mark Andrews. She isn't your typical princess. She does not wear nice clothes except in a couple of scenes when her strict mom, Queen Elinor, makes her do it for special functions. She's an active and action-oriented person. She wants to get out in the outdoors of the Highlands, escaping from castle life and exploring the woods.

The daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor, Merida is determined to carve her own path in life. She defies all age-old customs sacred to the raucous lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin. Lord Macintosh, and cantankerous Lord Dingwa.

Merida unwittingly unleashes fury and chaos in the kingdom. When she turns to a Wise Woman for help, Merida is granted an ill-fated wish.

She must find the meaning of true valor in order to undo the curse before it is too late.

Voices behind the characters include Kelly McDonald (Merida), Billy Connolly (King Fergus), Emma Thompson (Queen Elinor), and Craig Ferguson (Lord Macintosh).

The movie intertwines humor, trials, and important life lessons into one glorious Pixar package.

Pixar released a statement about the film: Set in Scotland in a rugged and mythical time, 'Brave' features Merida, an aspiring archer and impetuous daughter of royalty. Merida makes a reckless choice that unleashes unintended peril and forces her to spring into action to set things right.

The movie is set to hit theaters June 22, 2012.

Eager Pixar fans have rushed to Twitter to discuss the trailer.

Many had already commented on the intricate and fantastical designs for the Brave characters, referring to them as mind-blowing.

Others are excited about the female lead character.

Finally a female Protagonist and a mother-daughter relationship. Plus it's the first Pixar movie to traffic specifically in the world of fairy tales and myth, wrote Scott Myers of the Black List.
