What do you think of Cinderella's new face?
Cinderella's new look
I actually kind of like the new hair and new nose because she looks more real; but I can't help but feel like they could've held off slimming down her cheeks a bit. I know it's not significant, but it bugs me, personally. And really, I can't even tell IF they did it--maybe it's just the additional blush that makes it look that way.
They are a corporation - making money is their business. It's not a charity. Don't like it? Don't buy it.
I hadn't seen this before, but my first thought was that she looks "younger" and I'm not really a fan of that, since in the story she is supposed to be old enough to be get married. In that picture (the one in the banner), I would say she looks like a young teen, and not a young adult.
That's an excellent point...
She looks like a teenager to me (but then again, I'm almost 49). I thought the original Disney Cinderella was very homogenous (looks like any other white person of European descent). This one is sorta the same but looks more modern.
I'm not a Christian, but the Virgin Mary has changed considerably over the years: from abstract Byzantium mosaic to Renaissance breastfeeding chick to classic statuary like the stuff you see in the church lawns these days. Stuff changes over time. Style changes. Our perception of Cinderella changes. We see a movie (thinking the original Cinderella movie and that image is set in our minds as the "right" image. Go back to the woodcuts of the German Grimm times and you'll probably see a different image. I'd like to hear the folktales from Europe of what people really thought Cinderella looked like. But then again, those tales were oral, so everyone had an image in their own mind of what Cinderella looked like (like when you read a book and your imagination takes over). In the end, the Cinderella produced by Disney is just their own interpretation. I have my own dreams and thoughts based on my own experiences.
