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.

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.

I think they made her look more like a teen to appeal to tween girls who have grown out of the princess stage.

They are a corporation - making money is their business.  It's not a charity.  Don't like it?  Don't buy it.

I like it, actually. Her face is more heart-shaped rather than oval, which does make her look a little younger I guess, but it's really more about style rather than age I think.

i bet they are going to see how cinderella does and if its a hit they will go and change the others too. 

 

yes she looks younger. but the little kids. do they even 'see' the face? does the face even matter to them or is it all the paraphernalia that attracts them.

Now that I really think about it, the previous version wasn't really any better. I was just used to it. But it doesn't compare to the movie at all. For one thing, her hair was almost brown, not bright yellow.

That's an excellent point...

I don't like it just b/c it's not the Cinderella in the movie and that's what I grew up with.

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.
