On May 11th Brave‘s Merida will be officially crowned as the 11th Disney Princess, the impact of which is that Disney will be selling more stuff with her on it, I guess? Anyway. Along with the “coronation ceremony,” to be held at Walt Disney World, Merida’s gotten a new redesign, which will be used on merch along with the 3D version.
For comparison, two pictures of the original Merida (one with each of the dresses her new outfit is based on) is behind the jump. What do you think of the new version? I wish they’d kept to her non-ceremonial dress, but the tartan’s a nice touch.
Edit: Here’s a pic of her with some other Disney princesses. Merida’s redesign is a little generic-seeming, but they all are, so… *shrug*
Edit 2: The picture above does not contain all of the official Disney princesses. The full list is: Snow White, Mulan, Aurora, Belle, Tiana, Ariel, Cinderella, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Rapunzel, and now Merida. Snow White or Ariel haven’t been cut. Just FYI.
