O brave new "Brave" that hath such people in it

Unless you live in a cave in Tora Bora you probably noticed that last year Disney/Pixar released a splendid animated film Brave. The heroine of Brave is Merida, daughter of a Scottish clan chieftain (voiced by Billy Connolly) who refuses to accept the girly role her mother (voice by Emma Thompson) wants her to fill. In my opinion Merida is one of the few Disney cartoon heroines who seems like a normal human girl, the kind your children could identify with. (OK, maybe Belle in Beauty and the Beast too.) She has red hair! And it's always a mess! She has a normal shape! She rides a heavy horse! And shoots a bow better than any of the local lads!



So when, in readiness for her induction into the pantheon of Disney Princesses, Disney released these pictures of how Merida had been reimagined, the shit hit the fan (or several thousand fans, in fact):



This blog post covers the issues pretty well, and points out the equal indignities visited upon previous Disney Princesses, but I am especially aggrieved for poor Merida, considering that the whole point of her character is that she is precisely NOT a girly princess.



OK, now trot over to change.org and sign the petition asking Disney to reconsider the makeover.
