Disney's "Brave" Princess Controversial Makeover

I was on Yahoo just now and this article caught my curiosity: "Merida's Disney Princess Controversial Makeover- Is 'Brave' Heroine Redesign Bad For Little Girls?



I honestly don't see a significant difference between the two, but the new design has suburban housewives in an uproar. They are basically saying the redesign is too sexy compared to the original one and it may hurt little girls' self esteems because they will feel they will have to become prettier like Merida did since the character was more of a plain jane appearance wise aside from her hair. Again, I don't really see a significant difference besides a flashier dress, lipstick, and that fact that her *gasp* bare shoulders are showing.

Then I got to thinking about what Disney should really do for their next princess: If they want to send the message to girls that they are fine the way they are physically, they need to have a chubby princess. I'm dead serious.

Must be a slow new week if they are reporting on A DIFFERENT ARTIST'S INTERPRETATION OF A CHARACTER! God, some people are idiots.

Sounds like some losers have nothing better to do but complain about something so juvenile.

And bring on the chubbs!

The problem is the character in the movie was very tomboyish and didn't want to be a pretty girl, which is what the make-up, fixed hair, and sparkly dress is. They put her in the dress that the character hated so much. Personally, I love the original design. We need a princess with some meat on her bones. Not every girl is a size 2.

^To be honest, she's still extremely thin in the original design. It's true that the uproar was about the fact she wasn't a typical girly princess before though.

A lot of the housewives and soccermoms sure are getting this wrong. Like SanePsychoSuper said, the only real reason I could see people upset by the change is mostly because it's betrays the character, who is completely different than what the redesign shows her as

As much as I don't want to cite them, I think IGN actually did a good job discussing what's wrong with this - http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/05/...o-brave-disney

The way I see it, some people have the right to be upset, but some are getting upset for the wrong reasons, and it doesn't really warrent the publicity its gained

Bingo. Seriously Disney, make a chubby/fat princess.

I'm telling you, the only difference between the two is artist preference. Obviously the one on the left was made by Pixar, and the one on the right is made by a Disney artist based off of Pixar's designs.

A lot of them are put in an era where women wore corsets, but you probably already knew that.
People are often saying this too. It seems a bit harsh to say that someone needs "meat" on their bones and then implying that girls that are size 2 don't have anything on them.
To be honest, it's as bad as calling a girl fat.

I may be biased because I'm a size 2, but seriously people need to remember that it isn't just based on how much fat or "meat" someone has on them. It's genetics as well. Some women are curvy, which is down to genetics and bone structure most of the time. I don't want to be a size 2, finding clothes for one is extremely difficult at times, but I'm stuck like this due to my genetics.



And the moral of the story is to remember that when you say something like that, even though it may help a girls self esteem who is bigger than a size 2, somewhere you're just hurting a girl who is a size 2 or smaller, because they do exist.
