Disney Princess Redesigns by corazongirl Disney Princess Redesigns by corazongirl
*****PLEASE READ*********

Just For A little comparison..a screenshot of each princess in their movie vs. the 2013 redesigns Disney released.

I know I didn't put Merida..but this thing was inspired by her. this was inspired by the big fuss going around about how Disney sexifies it's princesses. Disney redesigned her twice because people were complaining about how they made her thinner and sparkly. 
They really didn't understand the petition..they basically changed her pose after all those complaints. www.csmonitor.com/The-Culture/…

I prefer the originals, especially when it comes to Mulan, Jasmine, and Pocahontas. They look much less exotic in the redesigns.. Overall each girl seems to have less..personality? Maybe that's not the right word, but they look a bit more clone-like in the 2013 versions. All well.

The fact of the matter is that Disney is a company that makes its money off of monopolizing the fairy tales and legends people should grow up with and adapting them to their own tastes. While I disagree with the redesign, ultimately, it's up to the parents exactly how often and to what degree their children are exposed to the cultural sexism that has been ignored for most of our lives.

I honestly don't hate them.  But, they can tone down the sparkles by a tiny notch.

It's almost like they Photoshoped a cartoon lol. It's like what they do to the models in magazines or something.  These designs are the ones you see on all the products for kids they have out there.

I personally like some of the redesigns particularly Cinderellas.  I do agree they all look very similar but I don't think theres any nefarious, 'sameism'  or sexiness, that people have been shouting about.  Note Disney is always under fire for one thing or another,  the whole Merida thing was just another thing for Disney haters to latch on to.

I think in the end it all comes down to money.

Disney princess merchandise is one of the top selling branded merchandises out there.  not just that but the designes have been updated a dozen times to fit not only advancing technology, but also updated fashions.

I think the thing that shocked people with this trend of redesigns is how much they've changed. and thats just personal preference really people grew up with the girls looking a certain way having them shift so drastically is a shock.

as for the money, it's as simple as this.  rather then having to design dolls and toys and prints to fit all the different artistic styles.  they now have one style to sweep the board.  I'd bet money that they commissioned one, or one group of artists to do these designes, that means inevatably all the girls are going to come out looking alot more simmilar then they did before because it's the same people. not 10 diffrent teams working on a princess each in difrent film asthetic styles.

Do you see what I'm saying?

why the need of so much glitter and shine I wonder.. I totally agree with you, old style is sooo much better. More personality but also just.. more pretty and all original. Also, there are my memories ;)

It's scary how with the left-hand column (the re-designs) you could just remove the hair and they'd all have exactly the same face. With scarily defined cheek bones. Also, Mulan, Tiana and Rapunzel, what have they done to you? :'( you're my favourites!
