Disney under fire for Princess Merida makeover

Disney is coming under fire for what many parents are calling an unnecessary makeover to the main character in the movie, "Brave".  Many parents say Disney wasn't 'brave' enough to leave Princess Merida as is. 

The character was given a head-to-toe makeover just days before she is officially crowned Disney's 11th princess.

If you look at a before and after photo, you will notice that Merida is now thinner, has wider eyes and her hair is more tame.

Many parents think this sends the wrong message to young girls and are hoping Disney restores Merida back to her original self.

A petition has been started on change.org and currently has over 50 thousand signatures.
