The report adds that the Disney animators scheduled a meeting with Anika Noni Rose, the voice actress who plays the role of Princess Tiana and a few representatives of Color Of Change. The group is known to campaign against racial representation, including portrayals of black characters in Hollywood.
The group sent a statement to All the Moms from Brandi Collins-Dexter, who is a senior campaign director stating that the Disney decision was a '"victory" for the organisation's members.
Huge win for Black girls who look up to Princess Tiana! After conversations with @Disney & @DisneyAnimation about the character's appearance in #WreckItRalph2, they addressed our concerns and restored Tiana to her original depiction. #RepresentationMatters https://t.co/lN8j4OA95N
