Pixar fans have been treated to an extended glimpse of the successful studio's latest effort, Brave.

Demonstrating another change in style and genre since the success of Cars 2, Toy Story 3 and Up, Brave is set in a "mythic Scotland" and centres around a red-headed princess who has a spell cast upon her.

Visually stunning, with a slow-motion archery scene showing off the quality of the 3D computer-generated animation, the trailer shows once again that Pixar is not prepared to rest on its laurels.

Whether it can continue the studio's spectacular run of commercial and critical success remains to be seen.
