I thought this would be an interesting point to raise.

Flora, Fauna and Merryweather, also known as the Three Good Fairies, recently started appearing in the brand new Festival of Fantasy Parade at the Magic Kingdom in Florida. For the first time at WDW, they appeared in "face" form. In the past the Fairies have always appeared in their animated form whilst visiting WDW. Since SpectroMagic ended, they have not appeared at all in the parks there.

In Disneyland (California), the Fairies have appeared for over a decade in their non-animated look, including last year when they visited for Long Lost Friends Week.





In Disneyland Paris, the Fairies previously appeared in their animated form, but in the last couple of years started appearing as non-animated. With the loss of FantIllusion at DLP last year, the Fairies now exclusively appear in their non-animated look there (during the day parade, just like WDW).







So, this raises a question. Now that SpectroMagic and FantIllusion no longer run, and the two parades they currently star in feature them in their non-animated form, does this mean their animated look has become obsolete? Is their non-animated look now their standard look?

I think that the animated version looks better. But what if they are just looking like this for parades because from the look of it it is very hot in those costumes.

I want to see the animated fairies, I don't like the face look very much at all. 😁

I like non-animated. Human and humanoid characters should be face characters when possible so they can talk to guests. Also, human characters down in the "fur" style tend to be a bit creepy looking. See also- Frollo, Queen of Hearts, etc.
