She is the newest Disney Princess. She is also the most wild of them all. As many children and parents connect with Merida in the movie BRAVE. Disney feels that her look and image should be cleaned up before she hits the grounds of Theme Parks and Princess Line status in stores. The two looks are posted here. The Well Behaved is on the left and the Wild One (original) is on the right) Parents this week began a petition against Disney and the results?
Disney suffered a HUGE backlash when they glammed up Merida, the heroine
of the movie "Brave", in order to add her to their "Princesses" marketing line. And so yesterday
they CAVED. Without commenting, they dropped the tarted-up version of Merida and brought back the
ORIGINAL character, as she appeared in the movie.
This is not the first we hear of such changes of a Disney princess, as the website Jezebel.com notes, the other 10 princesses have also
been subjected to sexist redesigns, including, quote, "lots of makeup, hair extensions, plumpedup
lips, breast implants, Restylane cheek injections, and an inordinate amount of glitter."
