As for 2099net, I see what you mean, and I do think it's all right for some games, but I don't think that after the original creators of these characters went through a long process to develop a certain style and design, those designs should be ignored in these particuliar games. These are Disney's first DVD games for the dogs and princesses, and I just don't think it's the time for them to be in a new style. Save that for clothing or one of the many other games featuring these characters being made for game systems. As Disneykid said, these DVD games are different from just a PC game created as some cheap tie-in or something.
Well, there's a difference between a cheap redesign to save time/money and a redesign to make something work either in a different medium and/or artistic style.
Look at the Clone Wars cartoons. They were designed with minimal lines and easy to animate shapes, but most Star Wars fans (as well as animation fans) approve of the character (re)designs. Because they were done with respect for the original and with style.
Same with the Fantastic Four - Jack Kirby's Fantastic Four are different from John Byrne's, who are different from Mike Wieringo's. I like them all, although Kirby's - being the first - will always be the "definitive" rendering. There's a number of artists who's renditions I don't like, but I'm sure some people do. And without the changing styles, I would never have seen's Wieringo's.
So all of this is a long winded way or me saying: Yes, let them do a CGI Cinderella etc. if they want to. But if they do, do it with time, love and care.
As for DVD games. No thanks. We all have computers and most of us have games consoles. Why turn a DVD player into something it's not?
