I don't think Disney should be teaching young girls that to be beautiful you have to look a certain way but instead that everyone is beautiful and I think Merida does that.

Only movie for children where the girl is empowered and independent, without needing the figure of the man to get things done

My younger cousin idolized Merida for who she was and now Disney is trying to change that! I'm very disappointed in them. I don't want my cousin to think that she should be like the newer Merida.

I have spent my entire life trying to shed the beauty myth and I now have 2 daughters and want them to have examples of girls who are powerful and don't look like every other hollywood princess. Give us variety to represent the real world!!

I have been a huge fan of the disney princesses ever since I can remember and the fact that Disney is changing any of them is very frustrating. I remember walking into Target a while back and looking at coloring books and I saw one that said "Cinderella" on it so I pulled it out to look at it. I remember my mom yelling at me because I instantly screamed "WHO THE HELL IS THAT?!" in frustration while looking at the cover. I think that it is absolutely ridiculous that Disney (a company I do love) is sinking down and becoming a part of the ridiculous beauty ideals already put out by the media to girls.

I'm am sick and tired of woman being depicted as objects, of something to admire, we have personalities too, we are human beings as well, so please start treating us like one!

Girls, or just children and people in general should not be given the message through a classic, inspiring children's film that they need to be skinny and 'sexy' to be a hero, or even just to be a normal person to fit in. This is classic stereotyping and will only cause people strife when they cannot live up to the expectations they are shown through a character such as the one that Merida is having an attempt made to be turned into.

Dear Disney. What are you thinking? This character was amazing, and you are doing your best to remove everything that makes her great.

It looks like a really bad photoshop job to make her look perfect and like a, dare I say SEXY, barbie doll. That's not sending the right message to young girls and does not hold up to the strong, feminist message from Merida's movie, Brave.
