On Thursday evening, Disney Pixar France posted what it said was the first official image from Pixar’s 2012 film, Brave. It seems they picked up the image from The Art of Disney Animation Facebook Page, which somehow happened upon it. Previously, we had only seen concept art from the film, but with a teaser trailer coming with Cars 2 next month, we knew actual images would be right around the corner. However, the image you will see is a bit blurry, pretty much confirming that this was a leak.
A few notes about the image:

It is blurry, which means this is not an image that was supposed to be released. Disney/Pixar would never release an image that looked less than spectacular. The very first image from a film is released, and it looks blurry? No way!
I am almost sure this is not part of the teaser trailer coming next month. More on that later.
It is also important to note that Brave is more than a year away, meaning that at this point, there is no way to know for sure if this shot will make it into the film. Again, the image was leaked online by someone when the film is not due until June 2012. The bottom line is that you should not get too attached to this image because it may very well not make an appearance.

Brave is set to hit theaters on June 22, 2012! Judging by the reactions, people are incredibly excited to get a look at this on the big screen. Remember, the teaser trailer will debut in theaters with Cars 2 on June 24 (only a few weeks from now), and it is sure to knock your socks off!
