Meh, the other Disney princesses were created in 2D. Merida was conceived in 3D and many of her features (pudgy face) which worked in 3D look odd in 2D.

The only obvious 'sexing up' would be the thinner waist and making her dress off-the-shoulder.

Sexy and sexist aren't mutually exclusive.
 
2013-05-13 04:47:02 PM
Sex sells.

 Deal with it.
 
2013-05-13 04:47:09 PM
Chapman wrote to the Marin Independent Journal on Saturday to express her disgust. "I think it's atrocious what they have done to Merida," she writes, going on to call it "a blatantly sexist marketing move based on money."

As opposed to all those marketing moves based on dignity and love of jelly beans?

What's wrong with being sexy?

Besides, her waist isn't nearly as disproportionately tiny as some of the other Disney princess inductees:

She looks older and the dress is more snazzed-up.  What's the big farking deal?

Because cartoons are not allowed to grow up and out!

Chapman, who won an Oscar for her work on Brave, continues, "When little girls say they like it because it's more sparkly, that's all fine and good but, subconsciously, they are soaking in the sexy 'come hither' look and the skinny aspect of the new version. It's horrible! Merida was created to break that mold - to give young girls a better, stronger role model, a more attainable role model, something of substance, not just a pretty face that waits around for romance."

I had no idea that having a smaller waist meant you couldn't be a "better, stronger role model, a more attainable role model," or "something of substance."

I mean if that "substance" was all in her waist sure, but other than that the actual character hasn't been changed at all.

I think it's the idea that they took a strong female character that didnt fit into the traditional gender role and image and, in essence, slapped every image booster they could thing of to show girls that you can't be truly happy unless you're thin, pretty, and serving a man.

They did it to Mulan. She's only accepted as a Disney princess when she's dressed as 'Happy Housewife' Mulan (with authentic tea serving hand actions)

I don't know what this cow thought was going to happen when she signed on with Disney. They sell these outfits and no one's going to pay $60 for a dowdy peasant dress.

Merida sort of broke the mold of earlier "Princess" characters.  She's fiercely independent, rebellious, and doesn't end up paired up with a prince at the end.  She's a bit of a tomboy and she's an expert archer who rides off through the woods on a Clydesdale at full speed.  The dress they have her in in the made over version looks more like the dress her mother made her wear that she absolutely hated rather than the simple dress she preferred.  In short, they've basically tossed out everything that set her apart from the other Princesses except the red hair.  I find it a tad depressing.  I'm not outraged or anything, but I do find it a bit sad that that's the image they've chosen to market instead of something more faithful to the film.

Right. Not to mention the incongruity of Meridia starting off as being strong, self-reliant, unconcerned about appearances, and more interested in substantive character growth than fluffy, doe-eyed romance...And then turning into a heavy-lidded hottie wearing the sparkling dress she should hate, and a come-hither expression..

She was originally praised as being someone whom girls might aspire to be like because of the strength of her character. Now, in making her an official "princess," they've said that girls should aspire to be like her because she's sexy and pretty.

I get it.

Disney is in the business of repackaging sex in a way that they can sell it to kids, with their clueless parents remarking on how cute it all is.

So yeah, get over it lady. If you didn't know this when you were cashing the checks it's too late to cry about it now.

Dude, give it a farking rest. You ALWAYS bring up how awful it is to be a male comic book character in an attempt to somehow make sexism in comics seems less bad. And you fail every time, because for every out-of-proportion male there's 100 out-of-proportion and also nearly-nude females. So just stop.

Yes because all male cartoon heroes are dumpy with no muscle tone. It's totally one sided.

She was the one who created it and became Pixar's first female director......who then became the first fired Pixar director because it wasn't working. She still gets credits on everything for getting the ball rolling, but what we saw wasn't exactly her movie.

It's a tough call because it is a lot of just in-fighting on what happened with the "creative differences"

The other difficult thing with this one was that she was kept on at Pixar through the movies release....now she's at Dreamworks so I can see that as an extra reason to knock any changes/drum up bad press for Disney

The new version looks like a high-maintenance 20-something biatch, not a teenage firecracker with authority issues. If they're gonna spend time and money creating memorable characterizations and IP, then they might not want to shoot their efforts in the foot.

Well, considering she was fired and a new, more Disney-friendly director was brought in to tone down the rebellious story line, she did it for somewhere between free and the money she originally agreed to.

Kids are always hearing adults in adverts talking about how important and awesome it is to be sexy. There's shampoo commercials during dinner hour with women making orgasm cries due to hair washing. Not surprising child aimed products have to show the female characters in appealing sexy mode.

I guess original Brave princess was too butch.
