The upcoming sequel to 2012's Wreck-It Ralph will move from the nostalgia of arcade games to the complexity of the worldwide web. But since the exciting announcement that the animated film would include a massive crossover with Vanellope and all the official Disney Princesses, the studio has faced one reality of the internet: social media backlash. Over the summer, when part of the scene from Ralph Breaks the Internet was released, Princess Tiana's differing appearance than that of in The Princess in the Frog angered fans. Disney's only black princess was featured with lighter skin and a narrower nose than Tiana has been previously been seen in her 2009 film. A mere two months before the release of the sequel, Disney is finishing revisions to the character to more credibly depict the Disney princess.
