    It really took them this long to officially recognize the BEST Disney Princess? I guess all the others just knew they couldn’t compare and were being catty about it… ;)

    Here’s the funny think. In the 2D design she’s all sexy right? In her costume (which has the same shiny material and tartan belt and celtic designs around the bottom) its NOT over the shoulder, and her wig is suitably wild and care free. Also the actresses face was very child like in appearance looking more pixar than Disney. So… I don’t get it. Which are we going with here guys. Sexy or Pixar? Because if you can do one in the park, you can do it on the package.

    Ugh. That petition is kind of ridiculous. As was discussed in the article here, what they’ve done with Merida is stylise her to fit in with the ‘look’ of the Disney Princess range. The problem isn’t Merida’s redesign. In fact it’s pretty subtle and not a million miles away from what she ‘actually’ looks like.

    The problem is the Disney Princesses range. I’ll refer people back to that Big Shiny Robot article, and the group shots at the bottom. I don’t think any explanation of what’s wrong needs to be made, as it’s blindingly obvious.

    Rapunzel or Vanellope von Schweetz would take Merida any day of the week. Yes, Schweetz isn’t technically a princess, but only because she turned down the job to become president of a constitutional democracy.

  • Brian

    No, she unilaterally declared herself president. So she’s more of a dictator than anything.

    Vanellope is my favorite Disney princess. She was a princess during most of “Wreck It Ralph”; she simply didn’t know it. It’s canon, damnit.

  • Kris Talbot

    I seriously doubt that anyone is rooting for Taffyta to overthrow anyone.

  • Rudiger Dingobait

    Totally. I meant at the end of the movie she renounced her title to become “President von Schweetz”. Assuming that the movie isn’t set in the future that would mean that she isn’t a princess “now”.

    That’s how I hope Game of Thrones ends.
