Disney has agreed to redraw a black princess after lightening her skin and changing her facial features in "Ralph Break the Internet", according to a Wall Street Journal report and an advocacy organization.

Not too long ago, the studio faced tons of criticisms in regards to Princess Tiana's whitewashed appearance in "Wreck-it Ralph 2" as seen from the 1st trailer during the Disney Princess reunion scene.

Back in August, fans noticed that in a scene with other Disney princesses in the "Wreck-It Ralph" sequel, Tiana's features appeared more Eurocentric than in previous promos.

A petition was created regarding Princess Tiana's whitewashing stating, "The whitewashed image of Tiana you created for your new film, Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2, is unacceptable". Some accused Disney of whitewashing the character.

'The creation of Princess Tiana, Disney's first Black princess marked a defining moment for how Black women and girls are presented in media, specifically in animated movies, ' Color of Change tweeted.

Color of Change representatives said they also reviewed the changes to Tiana's animations to help ensure that the princess had darker hair and skin, as well as a wider nose and mouth.

Color of Change's senior campaign director, Brandi Collins-Dexter, traveled to the Disney Animation HQ in Burbank to take a look at the changes and advise the animators further.

While some social media users hailed the fact Tiana was shown with her natural curly hair, they pointed out that it was lighter and her skin tone was fairer.
