First, this looks pretty solid. Second, I have been wanting a “Black Girl Period Piece” as my friend Cameron calls for it forever. Third, why do I have to wait until May?
In theaters May 2, 2014
I NEED THIS. Saving the date
A period Drama with black people.. *rips hair out in excitement*. I live for this shit.
This looks lovely and incredibly complex. I’m all about it.
Oh cool, I haven’t seen a side-by-side comparison of the new princess makeovers yet.
I’m still not sure how to feel….I absolutely love experimenting with re-designs, and I was tired of them using the same art over and over for the princess merch, but I am also a fan of classics, and I don’t see much to reflect these ladies’ personalities and ideals, or even something from their films, in any of these re-designs.
