He created a whole new look for these Disney princesses for the celebration last month of the Buwan ng Wika. Their clothes along with the color of their hair were also made to appear as what you may say as very Filipino. No red or blond hairs for these princesses.

As Edward Neibart III told ABS CBN News, he chose to make the princesses look Pinoy because he feels that the Filipinos are very underrepresented in Disney movies. He further said that since the Filipinos now have a bigger role worldwide, he chose to make this representation of the Filipino costumes.

Meanwhile, the netizens gave mixed reactions; One “Edwardo Todd’ said that the representation of the Ifugao on Pocahontas was imprecise. He specifically mentioned some details like the jewelries, the Ifugaos being usually colourful and seldom had tattoos.

Everyone has their own opinion and maybe, there would be no right or wrong comment of observation as it all boils to one point; it really depends on each individual’s personal preference.
