Merida's New Look for Royal Coronation at WDW on May 11th

Merida to become 11th Disney Princess with new look for royal coronation ceremony at Walt Disney World on May 11

Move over Rapunzel. The honor of being named the newest Disney Princess will soon go to Merida from Disney/Pixar’s Academy Award-winning film “Brave.”

Merida will officially become Disney’s 11th princess in a royal coronation, set to take place at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom theme park on Saturday, May 11, 2013. The ceremony will take place at 9:30 a.m.

All Magic Kingdom guests are invited to watch the Disney Princess coronation of Merida on May 11, 2013 at Cinderella Castle, but should be aware that Disney’s own cameras will be recording the event and will likely be blocking off a large area directly in front of the castle.

Hooray for Merida! I loved Brave! Pocahontas' earrings kind of threw me in this pic, and Mulan really confused me with her sparkles! Will poor Merida be covered in glitter as well I wonder?

But wouldn't Merida hate hanging with the other princesses? She'd be off with Flynn Ryder and Prince Phillip having adventures.

Well, maybe she'd hang with Pocahantas or Mulan.

Why, of course she will. Didn't you know "more is more"?

I cannot get over the lack of clothing on her shoulders.

Why do they want our little girls to "look up" to this more skanky look? I am totally boycotting all new princess merchandise. I said it when it debuted and I'll say it again. I also complain (in a joking way) to every person at the Disney Store and WDW that I possibly can, not that they can do anything....but it may eventually make it's way up the totem pole if we all speak (with our dollars, or lack thereof, of course.)

I don't think anything could get 'more skanky' then Jasmine's original look
Or even Ariel's shells only for that matter

But I do agree, I think the new looks are stupid. There was nothing wrong with the old looks. Little girls were still falling in love with those princesses with those old looks every day. I just think it is silly.

As opposed to when Ariel and Mulan were completely naked in their own movies? I guess I don't get where showing your shoulder is "skanky". I guess technically Jasmine's original outfit would be considered that, while the one pictured has a much higher waist than she used to have.

For the most part all the Princesses pictured are covered from their neckline to their feet.

Truthfully, I have a 10-year old daughter, and they are dressed much more conservatively than many of the girls her age.

Huh?!?!?!?!

I would not call any of these princesses "skanky". They are princesses, not pilgrims.

I'm showing my shoulders right now! And despite being called a lot of things, I've never been called "skanky".

The new look just doesn't suit Merida. From the impression I got from the movie, it seemed like she didn't want to dress up in fancy clothes. The new pics show a more princessey Merida when she is a kinda more of a tomboy.

Pocahontas' earrings appear to be feathers. While I know practically nothing about the American Indian culture, I think that feathers are frequently used. As to Mulan's 'sparkles', it seems to me that her dress merely has the shimmer that a silk dress would typically have.

While I admit that I haven't sat through that movie a thousand times with my daughter, so I am not an 'expert' on the character, isn't her dress basically the same as in the movie except for the scandalous shoulders? Also, it seems that the wild hair, bow, and quiver still send the 'tomboy' message.

Not everyone is happy about this change. From the Huffington Post:
