Whoa, what? While I have no problems with the new Cinderella, I must say I'm a bit confused. What "new fangled choker"? Hasn't Cinderella always had that choker?

If they wanted to spruce her up a little, that's fine, but they changed her face! I don't see a reason to change her face. Like someone else said, she looks generic now.

I pass on new Cinderella. I wont be buying anything with the new Cindy on it either.

Yeah, she's always had it. They just made it (of course) blue-er and shinier. It used to be a flat black- I think it was supposed to be a black velvet ribbon, which was pretty popular around the era I'm pretty sure the movie is taking place in (Bustles, the shape of the skirt evolving from the Antebellum-enormous-crinoline, Cinderella's mother's dress being late regency style. Cinderella's dad's clothes and the clothes little Cinderella was wearing at the beginning of the movie -VERY 1860s style). Making it so shiny gives it a more...uh...leather like appearance I guess?

Very sad that a Disney classic is going to get a "messy" teen hairstyle. There is zero reason to update Cinderella.

I'm against these makeovers. The princesses are beautiful because they are so natural, they are true to themselves and they don't have to show off their looks to impress anyone. Now they look like those girls on Toddlers and Tiaras. And for what? They don't look nearly as authentic or beautiful as they did when the animators drew them.

Change is coming and we cannot stop it. Think of what the heart of the princess franchise is about: consumer goods. It always has been (look it up).

I do think it is a bit unusual for Disney to mess with their recipe, but as someone else has mentioned, they don't limit the evolution of their designs for successful characters. In fact, when a character gets a tweak or redesign, that's usually a sign of longevity.

I found a link that shows off the new princess dolls: http://d-princesses.livejournal.com/1335983.html

Check out that header image for the 2012 style.


Some full body shots from this t-shirt.







As you can see, the changes are subtle. Mostly with the hair, slight changes in the costumes. This has everything to do with merchandising. How many Cinderella dolls can you sell when they've looked the same for more than 60 years?

I think I just uncovered the purpose of the new looks. It appears that the princesses with make cameos in the new Disney Junior series "Sophia the First: Once Upon a Princess"

A preview clip from the show shows off an updated Cinderella making a visit along with the Flora, Fauna and Merryweather (the fairies from Sleeping Beauty). This cross-over makes me believe we'll eventually see many of the princesses making cameos.

I noticed that on the pins shown on the Disney Parks Blog for New Fantasyland, Belle is shown in her new style with her giant hair! I am not a fan.

There's nothing subtle about Belle's hair.

I am not a fan of most of the changes. I like snow white her face looks a little fuller. The rest look like they put make up on them . And cinderella's face is horrible, she looks like another barbie .

I work for Hallmark and we have had the new Cinderella on cards, gift bags, and party items for several weeks now and the response has actually been really good! They are selling quite well, which is surprising because normally the stuff with just a single princess does not tend to do as well as the designs with multiple princesses...

Ugggg! Why would Disney change the princesses that everyone loves? They are classics. In my opinon the new changes to the princesses make them look much younger and somewhat inapropriate. They have ruined the look of Cinderella, as she now looks to have no class!
