Yes, I liked the Mother Gothel one, however that is a designer line Disney created to sell in their stores. It looks like they're actually making changes to the Princess's now. I wonder if it will back fire or sell because they do not match with their movie counter parts.

Ursula just creeps me out all the way around the board, I think it her face... or maybe its the tentacles.

The doll makes it worse. *shivers Do you see that face????

Just noticed this on Disney Shopping:



Her face doesn't look right to me let alone the hair.

I saw a promo for the upcoming Disney Junior movie "Sophie the First" and noticed that the "new version" of Cinderella makes appearance.

I noticed that as well. I wonder if my daughter will notice...

Thinking back to the designer villains dolls, because those are meant to be more for adults, one would have to consider artistic license with the representation of the characters. Disney probably wanted them to appear slightly different - chic or en vogue, dare I say - because they are just that: "designer" dolls for adults.

Ditto. I can deal with the hair, but the face? What is up with that? It's Cinderella, how do you change that?!?!

Yeah, I'm the Dad, but my kids feel the same way!

I never would have liked this when I was a kid. I wouldn't get a princess dress because they had those stupid cameo things on the front with the princess's face. It wasn't accurate to the movie, lol!

I noticed all the minority princesses are drawn smaller. They are also posed awkwardly or drawn simply, with no life to them. The classic princesses look over designed and forced. It's almost like each princess was drawn by a different designer. The whole thing is a mess. Let's hope this was the work of interns and just fades away.

If I saw Cinderella like this in the store I would assume it was a fake or cheap Disney replica. No way I would buy it and my child loves Cinderella!

I haven't paid attention to the princess makeovers before.

This is the first time I've really looked at them and they are just wrong because they should match the movies - modernizing isn't always good and it's a shame Disney doesn't see that.

I saw a huge display of the new Cinderella in Target today. Seeing her in person (the doll) was even more disappointing. If I hadn't already known about the make-overs I would have checked the box to see if they had a Disney trademark. And the doll also has the curl of hair over her ear, but it sticks out kinda funny and looks dumb. "Look Mommy! It's teen Cinderella going to prom!"

I don't understand why Disney would want something so generic looking? Disney dolls are distinctive, my niece has lots of Barbie like dolls...they all have been put in different clothes and you can still tell who is Belle or Cinderella or whoever, clothes or not... but not anymore. They could have "modernized" them some and still left them distinctive and recognizable as Disney. I don't get it.

If you look at the minority girls, though, they didn't seem to change at all! Especially, Pocahontas, like a Powhatan princess really wore that outfit, lol.
