Cinderella bothers me the most. She just looks like Barbie dressed up as Cinderella. I don't care for how they thinned out all their faces, it makes them look older to me. And I know it's silly, but I hate Snow White's bow on the side instead of on top of her head.

Those pincurl waves on the new princesses look like the ones we had in 1960. The older straighter hair is more contemporary unless Disney knows that hair styles are about to get curlier.

Aww c'mon now, great grandmothers? I saw Little Mermaid and Beauty as a kid and I only have a 7 year old. But seriously I think the changes are a little strange. They slightly changed the face shape, made their eyes way bigger and gave them button noses, then changed the hair slightly. Either way looks "ok" I guess, but why change it from the movie?

Did you see Snow White and Cinderella when they originally made their theater debuts?

It occurs to me that one thing that they are doing with this is bringing all princesses into the same animation style. This is important if they are to cross over and appear together. Watching Sophia, again, made me think of this.

Why are the kids in 2013 dumber than all the kids that went before them that had to deal with different artistic styles?

This is the one of the most disgusting things I've seen written on these boards.

I'm shocked anyone would have ever considered the work of the 9 old men as simply the work of an employee.

They were and are artists.

And while this may be technically true, it doesn't seem to detract from YoHo's point.

Wow. Overreact much?

Sure they were artists. That fact doesn't change my point in any way.

You let me know when the Mona Lisa gets updated to better connect with modern art viewers and we'll talk.

That's a great analogy. This is why:

Someone could paint a new version of the Mona Lisa. Someone probably has. The mere fact that the new version existed would not change the original one in any way, however. Similarly, these updated characters don't change the original art in any way.

I think most of them look like they are modeling for Frederick's of Hollywood, especially the way their hair is styled.

I would have said VS.

None of them have a neck line low enough for Fredricks.

They need a princess of Asian decent. (don't give me "mulan" she's not on par with Belle, Ariel, etc)

Way too many white/blonde princesses. I was thrilled with Princess and Frog and I was greatly disappointed when they came out with Tangled. Another white blonde woman? Seriously? I thought Princess & Frog indicated a new direction.

Except the Mona Lisa's image isn't used in a da Vinci theme park. If it were, and they decided to change all the current uses of the Mona Lisa to a more modern look, then you would have a good analogy.

And both instances would be equally wrong.
