I’m sure we’ve all seen this going around the web. Merida has become a Disney Princess. And it has sparked outrage! How dare they make her into a skinny, sexy, princess! That’s going against everything she stood for in the movie.
Hang on, am I the only one who’s not seeing this? I look at the Disney Princess Merida, and I see THE EXACT SAME CHARACTER, just in a different style. She’s not ‘more beautiful’, she’s drawn in the Disney Princess Style. You can’t line up classic 2D Princesses and then have Pixar’s crazy different style next to them. It would look stupid as fuck.
Skinnier face? Yeah, because a round circle just totally fits with everyone else’s more realistic face shapes. Lower cut top? Even if it is down a few centimeters, come on. More beautiful? I’m not even going to bother addressing that.
SPARKLES? SPARKLES ARE EVIL. Spawn of the devil. Girls must be anti-female anything at all times. Forget little girls just loving sparkles.
I’m a proud feminist, but geez, guys… there are actual battles to be fought. This is just making feminism look like a joke.
Finally a comment with some perspective.
This is the SAME FRICKING MERIDA, she just was drawn in another style. If you valorate more a person for their’s image than for what they represent, then all those angry feminist need to re-evaluate their criterias.
I saw the images and saw the same person but the “After” image is in 2D. Are people really complaining about this image because it “ruins” what she represents?…
