AIBU to be annoyed at Disney's reworking of Merida?

They've going to give her make-up, completely changed her facial features and made her dress skimpier.

Here.

There's also a petition protesting it Here.

What do you guys think?

I've just read the wording of that petition, and I'd be annoyed by that tbh.

'Keep Merida brave'

Why can't a character still be brave, successful, independant as well as being pretty?

Girls don't have to be one or the other.

Isn't it turning girls off of aspiring to those admirable qualities if they aren't attracted to the character?

I think she was pretty before. I fail to see why she has to be sexy to be pretty, which she clearly is in the new pictures.

She was pretty, but was carrying a bow and wasn't showing off her cleavage.
