Her hair was long again in Mulan 2.

Honestly, this sort of argument is like taking the position that Rapunzel should have short, brown hair because that's the way the movie ended and her getting her hair cut was significant.

I can deal with the sparkles as a "Dinsey Princess special occasion" type promo thing but. . .

THIS

As for Jasmine, what's with the little piece of hair that "sticking" out. And why do her pants (you can't see them in the picture I know) now have that sheer piece over them? Her wedding outfit had that, not her blue outfit.

That strand of hair is annoying! Very unnecessary, I mean really, that just HAD to be added

I don't like Auroras dress at all, the sparkles just look WRONG. Just like they do on Snow White.



I could deal with Cinderella's dress (It's always been the wrong colour and style since her dress in the movie is silver/white) But she looks like she's had cosmetic surgery that's gone wrong...What's with her sunken cheeks and pouty lips? Also, Ariel in "human form" in her new emerald grees dress looks like she's had a nip and tuck too....
Exactly, it's like the Princess's went to Beverly Hills. What's up with Belle? The sensible, book smart one all of a sudden looks has enhancements and looks like a escort.

There are enough pop princesses out there, do we really need pop tart Disney one's too?

It's my opinion. I don't care much for Rapunzel although I DO think it's stupid in Tangled Ever After she had short brown hair at her wedding but all the wedding dolls have the long blonde hair....

I don't think it would be a tragedy if at least one Disney Princess had short hair. Not every little girl (or "big" girl) has long curly hair.....

Um... Those new makeovers strongly resemble fan art p*** of the Princesses.

That's a very true (and unfortunate) point.
Hopefully like "New Coke" this will one day be a thing of the past. Also, am I the only person who thinks in person Belle looks like a extra from the Hopp-Dee-Do Review? I don't mind the hair on the in park Belle, it should be long for her gown, but they can still use the old wig for her blue provincal dress. I don't care for the in park dress, it's the color that really is not Princess enough to me. It's all just very unnecessary IMHO. ah well

For the record, Universal has not changed the looks of their characters.
Those movies I referenced suck and you know it. Twister is not a classic movie, it is a stupid adventure flick that was popular like 15 years ago.

Ok, well, by your name I presume you're a guy and a dad, so I feel sorry for your ignorance if you can't see the "come hither" look the characters are giving, mouth agape and lips plumper.

This thread is quite disappointing but at least someone is happy with the unfortunate changes.

I like Twister and watched it the other night.
What about WDW having the Tron wrapped monorails or The Haunted Mansion for pity's sake? Those were bombs.
Yes, I know The Haunted Mansion was in existence before the atrotious movie.

I think when the costumes get updated, it's because of a number of factors, including costume costs. The fabric they were previously using for the Belle costume could've become cost prohibitive, leading them to decide to update the entire thing. I like the some things about the new costume, and dislike other things. I'll go through them (thought you might not care!).

The biggest thing I like far better is that they've change the shape of the skirt support. In the film, Belle's ball gown has the shape of a mid-nineteenth century ball gown which has a seriously round "bell" shape straight from the waist. She should be wearing a petticoat with no less than five hoops- a proper cage crinoline that starts ABOVE the hips. The old gown had a more conical shape, as a sixteenth century Elizabethan cone farthingale. Anyway, the new shape on this gown, like Cinderella's, is much much better. I also like the color better. The old yellow was REALLY yellow. This one is more flattering. It's not obnoxious. I also like that the swags on the gown look more natural. The old ones looked terribly fake, they didn't even look like the gown in the film. But what I DON'T like is the cheap crushed velvet they used for much of the gown (which is what leads me to believe that part of this redesign had to do with the cost of the gown). I also don't like the wig. I just preferred it look like the film, with the one shoulder sweep. But what really puzzles me about the gown is the bottom. This gown looks flimsy. Well, not flimsy. Delicate. It just looks like an accident waiting to happen, especially the lace at the hem! I work with costumes, and I've worn a few as well- lace at a hem is a NIGHTMARE! The maintenance on a costume like that is outrageous. I'd be surprised if the lace on the bottom lasts, but I could be wrong. The costume department could be amazing at maintenance. I like the look of the redesigned Cinderella park costume, but I wish they had gone even more diaphanous with the fabric at the hip, but it's definitely a lighter gown with the proper support and a step in the right direction.

As far as the redesigned merchandise characters, I think they're hideous. And I'm surprised there isn't MORE outrage. The princess will sell, like crazy, with or without an update. So WHY an update that makes them look LESS like who they are supposed to represent from the film? I plan on writing a letter of complaint. I think the girls look ugly.

I agree! I'm always hoping to see Rapunzel with short brown hair since that is how she ended the movie.

It would give away part of the movie if a short-haried brunette was labeled as the famous long-blonde-haired Rapunzel, no? Just a thought. But then again with this logic, Ariel should only be featured as a mermaid in products rather than a 'legged' person... oh well.

I can deal with Rapunzel will long hair in the parks. But I hate the merchandise of her in her wedding dress with long blonde hair... she had short hair when she was getting married.....
