So apparently the suits at Disney have given up and are like, "Fiiiiine, we'll make Merida an un-hot ginger."
The controversy, which first reared its head earlier this week when a more slim-trim/glammy Merida from "Brave" was unveiled for her coronation as a Disney World Princess, has resulted in fan outcry that ultimately led the Mouse House to tell Inside the Magic that the redesign was strictly a "one-time stylized version" that will only be used on a "limited line of products" for Target.

It's time to stop putting your foot in your own mouth, and time to start putting it into someone else's. The Evil Queen who torments the innocent Snow White seems like a good place to start.
Here's your golden opportunity (slash poisoned apple, take your pick): UK fashion designer Kobi Levi has unveiled her "Witch-Craft" line of shoes, celebrating fierce heels and fiercer Disney villains.
Three ladies of darkness are featured in Levi's collection of leather heels, which she calls "wearable sculpture": Ursula from "The Little Mermaid" and Maleficent from "Sleeping Beauty." Get More »
There was a certain fist pump-ery involved with the wily little heroine Disney and Pixar drew up for "Brave." Merida was a lot more rough-and-tumbling Katniss Everdeen than airy-fairy Cinderella, and the world dug it ... to the tune of more than a half billion smackers worldwide. Some of us sensed a new, bolder, more "with it" direction for the House of Mouse's idea of a Princess — one that didn't need a Prince Charming to kiss away the spell but who could get out there and handle business her own dang self.
Yeah, but that didn't last long did it? Saturday, Disney unveiled a shinier, supposedly prettier and definitely thinner variation of Merida at Walt Disney World when it inducted the character into the Disney Princesses line-up. Barf. Get More »
With "Iron Man 3" dominating not just the box office but pop culture in general, Marvel is pretty busy these days. Their Phase 2 is rolling out as planned, with "Thor: The Dark World" hitting theaters later this month and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "The Guardians of the Galaxy" both following close behind. In fact, things are going so well that the only major issue they're facing is how to find the time to put out even more movies.
With "Iron Man Three" already destroying box office records around the world and inspiring fans across America to brave huge lines and packed theaters, the folks at Disney and Marvel are no doubt in full-on party mode. But while things couldn't be better at the moment, one very dark cloud looms on the horizon: the prospect that Robert Downey Jr. has donned the Iron Man armor for the last time.
So will Downey Jr. return for "Iron Man 4"? Or is this the end of Iron Man as we know it? Get More »
Disney's princesses need to be taken down a peg or two once in a while for posterity's sake, and what better way than this sloth mash-up series which calls 'em out for being lazy little prisspants? Get More »
Ready to have your mind blown, children of Disney's classics?
First of all, you know how Tinkerbell and Alice and Maleficent and all those were flitting around, doing their melodic little dances of whimsy and whatnot? Yeah, well, to help the animators capture those moments in cartoon form, there were sets of real-life performers who acted the various scenes out for reference. Seriously.
For example, do you remember the Mad Hatter watch scene in "Alice In Wonderland"? Kooky as that fella was, a vaudeville star named Ed Wynn played out the scene first.
It's pretty good in human form too, no? Get More »
Wow. We didn't know horses could do that ... even CG horses.
The final trailer for Disney's "The Lone Ranger" showcases what is most definitely a "Pirates of the Caribbean"-sized adventure, one that hopes to transcend its troubled production and controversial casting by doing what Disney does best: putting on the biggest show in town.
And "The Lone Ranger" certainly looks big. Our hero (Armie Hammer) is dead even before Jerry Bruckheimer's logo shows up and resurrected mere frames later as the masked man who teams up with Tonto to ... uh, ride around on horses and leap onto trains and blow up bridges, apparently. Yeah, it looks like a bunch of chaos, but in true Disney style, it's damn classy-looking chaos. Heigh Ho!
Check out the new trailer, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies. "The Lone Ranger" rides into theaters on July 3.
Okay, everyone, you can rest easy, because according to Hypable, Disney revealed today the information fans around the world have been desperate to learn from the moment the new "Star Wars" trilogy was announced: "Star Wars: Episode VII" will be hitting theaters in the summer of 2015.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Are you ready for a new "Star Wars" film every single summer? Get More »
There's been a lot of buzz recently over the possibility of original "Star Wars" stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher returning to the fold to reprise their roles as Luke, Leia and Han in the upcoming relaunch "Star Wars: Episode VII." But there's one star from the original trilogy who never stopped playing his "Star Wars" character — and according to a new report from Digital Spy, it looks like he may be coming back yet again.
After all, it wouldn't be a real "Star Wars" story without Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, now would it? Get More »
