Disney character's makeover prompts online petition

Some say the changes send a negative message

The main female character from Disney's film "Brave"  has undergone a makeover.

Some parents are not happy about it.

Merida, the movie's princess, was hailed a hero for being one of the first feminist princesses.

Now, before being crowned Disney's 11th princess, she's been redesigned. Some believe she is now thinner, has wider eyes and better hair.

Many parents believe this is a negative message to send to children.

The move has even prompted a Change.org petition to urge Disney to leave Merida alone. The petition has almost 19,000 signatures.
