Merida – really to be changed?

184676-merida-makeoverRecently Disney released Brave an feature length animation about an adventurous girl who didn’t want to be the princess everyone expected. Set in Scotland a long time ago she refused to tie her wild hair up. She was a strong and powerful female role model. Now Disney has decided to change her and defeat the point of the entire film.

In this new Merida, they have put a belt in place of her signature bow and arrows and she is wearing the exact dress that she tried so hard to get out of in the film.


For her fans these changes have undermined the character or Merida and the purpose of the whole film.  This has been another one of the changes that Disney made to film characters. These changes have raised a lot of controversy and thankfully Disney has now reversed the decision.
