The new dress is so awful! It doesn't even look like Belle!

Huh. I thought I'd absolutely hate the new look but I actually really love it. The dress is fresh and updated and still resembles the old dress, without it looking as bulky. The wig is actually really flattering. I think she finally looks the age Belle is supposed to be.

This is honestly one of Disney's worst ideas.... why mess with classic characters and costumes? They are making characters unrecognisable and make them look like a generic Barbie doll..... Why mess with classics that have been loved for over 50 years!!!!

Honestly, I like the new dress more than the other one. Yeah, the color is off, but the new ones looks more delicate and flowy, much like the movie, instead of big, bulky and stiff.

I never really liked the old ball gown because it didn't match the movie in my opinion. Again, the color was right, but the look and feel always seemed off to me.

Jasmine and Ariel are the most likely to be miscast in Disneyland. (although a couple years ago, DL had an honest to goodness Persian as Jasmine, she was perfect.) Aurora is almost always spot on, because it's SoCal and Aurora looks like a SoCal blond.

She looks like Carrie Anne Inaba in a Gone With the Wind Frock...

Ok, when I saw the new look picture on the first page the first thing I thought was that Belle looked more hispanic than the new hispanic princess that was so lauded by Disney, Inc (my actual thought had the words 'hoochey momma' included as well, just as a full disclosure) Then I saw the live Belle pic and said "Dang, can I call it or what???" (without the hoochey momma reference just the hispanic look as the lady playing Belle looked very pretty and in no way hoochey momma-ish).

Belle is from France not Spain or Mexico, Cental, or South America. Why did they make that particular change so drastic. I am not so happy about the rest either but Belle stood out the most to me.

Disney is a business, as much as I LOVE it..I remember that
I agree with your post, but feel compelled to point out that Merida isn't Irish.

I thought that she looked like a very pretty Belle. Of course, I have no clue who Carrie Inaba is and have never seen Gone with the Wind. Most kids probably don't and haven't, also.

Isn't that the point of redesigning something?
