Jasmine’s new look from Disney Princess Magazine

As you might have heard Disney’s marketing department redid the look of their Disney Princess girls. From what I understand it make them more appealing to modern little girls and to better intergrate Rapunzel into the group. Until now I hadn’t seen a good quality drawing of Jas to decide myself if her new design is an improvement or not. The LiveJournal Community d_princess has scans from the march issue of the Disney Princess Magazine and after looking at them a few times I can say Jas looks more closely to her movie version.

Aladdin gives his Valentine flowers for Valentine’s Day Coloringpage

The coloring page below is based on a clipart from disneycliparts.com. It has the biggest collection of Disney clipart I’ve seen. They have cliparts from every Disney and Pixar movie to date. Their Aladdin section carries lots of cute Jasmine and Al & Jas pictures. Some are based on coloring pages from Streetrat that I’ve scanned from Disney Princess magazines a couple of years ago. Like Jasmine hugging cub Rajah or Aladdin and Jasmine romantic candlelight dinner

Aladdin Blu-Ray Cover Artwork

Australian artwork for the Aladdin BD+DVD+ Digital Copy edition available 27-03-2013 popped up at JB Hi-Fi . Not only is the artwork exactly the same as the 2004 Platinum DVD according to the site the Ausies are getting the same 9 year old bonus features. Filmmakers’ Audio Commentary, Sing Along With The Movie, Deleted Scenes, Music Videos and Deleted Songs and the A Diamond In The Rough: The Making Of Aladdin documentary.

But it could always get worse. Germany has the BD + DVD with 1993 VHS cover artwork! And a trilogy DVD re-release with off model Aladdin and Jasmine on the slipcase inside are one re-used of VHS cover for Aladdin plus reused Return of Jafar and Aladdin and the King of Thieves DVD artwork. At least the French have a choice. They’re all recycled too these are certainly much better. I prefer the first cover myself, I always liked that poster.
The Dutch edition has no cover art yet but has the same description as the Australian one, preorder at bol.com for a March 18, 2013 release. Personally I’d love to see that Disney Netherlands use either these posters. Shocking! If this is the best Disney has to offer I’m skipping this release altogether.It’s not like the 2004 ever went back into the vault.
