Are Disney's plans for WDW's Fantasyland Forest now being revised?

Given that the Company's Disney Princess franchise suddenly appears to need some shoring up (Which is why there are reportedly plans in the works for Disney Jr. to begin airing a Disney Princess TV series sometime after this cable channel transitions over from being SoapNet in 2012), it just makes sense to slow down things a bit.

"Sofia the First" (new animated special and series pilot)
"Sofia the First," a full length animated special and series pilot, set in the storybook world of the classic Disney Princesses, introduces Sofia, a little girl with a commoner's background until her mom marries the King and suddenly she is royalty. Sofia is whisked off to the castle, where she learns what it means to be a real princess, discovering empowering lessons about kindness, forgiveness, generosity, courage and self-respect. With the help of the three familiar fairies in charge of the Royal Training Academy – Flora, Fauna and Merryweather of Disney's classic "Sleeping Beauty" – Sofia learns that looking like a princess isn't all that hard, but behaving like one must come from the heart. The writer is Craig Gerber ("The Pixie Hollow Games") and the executive producer/director is Jamie Mitchell ("Special Agent Oso"). It is a production of Disney Television Animation.

In fall 2012, Disney Junior will premiere Sofia the First, a new full length animated special and series pilot set in the storybook world of the classic Disney Princess characters. It introduces Sofia, a little girl with a commoner's background until her mom marries the King and suddenly she is royalty. With the help of the three familiar fairies in charge of the Royal Training Academy — Flora, Fauna and Merryweather of Disney's classic "Sleeping Beauty" and, on occasion, classic Disney Princess characters including Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White — Sofia learns that looking like a princess isn't all that hard but behaving like one must come from the heart.

Thanks for the images and info! Great costumes! The animation and designs actually looks like a Disney Princess from the 50s! Impressed! :)

For some reason Princess Sofia reminds me of a young Giselle from 'Enchanted' - hmm, for not wanting to dilute the Disney brands with sequels, they've sure begun diluting it with preschooler shows... : /

Personally, I really dislike her character design. She looks like a chipmunk. I think it's the nose (and perhaps the mouth too).

The image seems stretched so I tried to fix it:

I think she looks less like a chipmunk now. :p

I actually like the design a lot, she looks like she'd be fun to draw, lol.

Considering the whole "Aurora's fairies teaching her and little girls by extension proper etiquette" premise, I don't think they're going the Bratz route here.

I think she looks cute--which I’m sure is all they’re going for with this. Definitely looks inspired by the Walt-era princesses. Cinderella’s ball gown mixed with Aurora’s maiden dress and Snow White’s cutesy forest friends.

Which reminds me of Cartman's Christmas story.
