That being said, if Disney had used artist’s J. Scott Campbell’s drawings for the basis of their characters, then they probably could have tapped into a whole new market and made me happier too. At the very least, all those adults waiting in line around Disney’s parks, watching the movies etc. would be just a little more excited about having to do so. Of course then they wouldn’t have been appropriate for kids, but work with me here … this is just a fantasy.
With three young girls, I’ve been subjected to countless viewings of the Disney Princess movies, been to Disney World multiple times where I waited in line after line to see the fairytale characters up close, even had breakfast, lunch and dinner with them while there. Hey I’m not complaining about it, as long as my girls enjoyed it, that’s all that matters to me.
Campbell’s “adult” rated renditions of the Disney Princesses features most of the ladies. I know some of you will object to seeing the characters our children idolize turned into sex-objects, and I understand that. But that aside, the drawings are fabulous comic-book styled works of art, and I appreciate that.
