So I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Disney revamped Merida from BRAVE to be more sultry than how she appeared in the movie.
Showing boob and more shoulders, softening and lengthening her hair, putting her in the very type of Dress Merida hated to wear, and worst of all, robbing her of her bow and arrow!
I was happy to find out that, earlier today, the Disney Princess website replaced the revamped Merida with her original image. But I started looking at the other Princesses on the page– they’ve all be altered to look super sexy and not at all like their movie selves!

After Viv went to bed, I did some further research, and saw that every single one of these princesses are revamped and extra sparkly, with fuller hair and exaggerated features.
The pictures on the left are the pictures from the Disney Princess Website; the pictures on the right are pictures of how the Characters appeared in their respective films. (Except for Rapunzel– I messed that one up, and Merida, since that is how the picture came).
Personally, I think the original pictures are a million times better. In fact, the re-vamped versions look more dainty and more ornate. Something tells me that Pocahontas wouldn’t be wearing feather earings. And Belle’s hair tendrils would totally get in the way of her book reading. What I hate the most is that that they lightened Rapunzel’s hair from a dirty blonde to yellow. She looks ridiculous!
