So, I think I’m in the minority who thought the Merida re-design was no big deal, and yet everyone totally flipped out over it.  Merida isn’t special.  Disney re-designed all of their other princesses this year to be a bit more glam.  Nobody batted an eye when Mulan was given hair extensions, a full new dress, and make-up.Really, the only part about all of this that I don’t like is that Merida is going to be a part of the Disney Princess line, when Kida (Atlantis: The Lost Empire) and Eilonwy (The Black Cauldron) are still being benched.  Plus, to top it off, Merida is from Pixar, and is not Disney canon.  I think the fans of Brave and Merida should just be happy that their character is being included.I know that this design has already been scrapped because everyone got so upset at these, really, minor tweaks that they had to go sign a petition against it.  But I still really don’t see what everyone was so upset over.
