WASHINGTON (Circa) — Disney has re-edited Princess Tiana's skin complexion after being criticized for white washing it.

Many critics believed her skin was much lighter than it should've been especially since she is Disney's first African-American princess.

A change in her appearance was noticed during the promotional tweets sent about the sequel to "Wreck-It-Ralph."

Disney decided to embark on these changes after conversations with the actress who voices Tiana, animators and a black advocacy group amid the social media firestorm.

Princess Tiana made her movie debut in 2008 after "The Princess and the Frog" was released. “Ralph Breaks the Internet” will be in theaters Nov. 21.
