Walt Disney Pictures has unleashed a fresh theatrical trailer for "Brave". Being titled "The Prize", the promo video highlights a scene where warrior princess Merida rebels against her conservative mother by ruining a competition followed by Scottish famed archers to win her heart.

Merida is seen fearlessly taking part in the male-dominated competition. The fuzzy hair princess tears her fancy gown and grabs her trusty bow and arrow before showing off her archery skill. One of her arrows is seen hitting the bullseye after splitting another arrow in two.

In "Brave," a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. The princess is a skilled and impetuous daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor. Determined to carve her own path in life, the warrioress defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land.

Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces the lead heroine to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it's too late.

Being scheduled to arrive in the U.S. theaters on June 22, "Brave" is directed by Mark Andrews. Kelly Macdonald voices Merida, while Billy Connolly and Emma Thompson lend their voices to the princess' parents. Also supporting the kid-friendly movie are Craig Ferguson, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd and Robbie Coltrane.
