I saw a picture posted by Characters Photo Blog on facebook (and I haven't found the source of the picture so sadly cant post it here) of an updated Angel in Tokyo. Her new head is smaller and more "stitch like"... personally I think this was a good idea as the current Angel is huge compared to Stitch and they should be the same size; however, the picture I saw looked a little strange... I think this was because she was too short so if her "friends" were a little taller it might look a lot better... either that or they need to slim down her body to match her new look.

We know they have Angel in DLP and there are rumors that she will start appearing with Stitch in Animal Kingdom at WDW so we would image they will be getting the "new look" Angel as well... when anyone will see them remains an open question though.

If anyone has a picture or finds one on flickr or something please post a link to it here is possible!

In my opinion it does look more like the actual character, but also less pretty. Not sure.

Yeah, I agree. I'm kinda bummed actually. I was excited she was potentially coming to DAK. -But if this is it, then I'm indifferent now.

My theory is that someone wanted Angel to match Stitch dimensionally. Since WDW is supposedly getting her soon, they opted to alter Angel somewhat instead of going back and changing Stitch, which would be more expensive. If stitch were changed, they would probably have to change him everywhere else he appears.

I would have helped Stitch first, because nobody has in nine years.
If he looked more like his new friends and cousins, it could be fantastic, no?

The thing I like least is it looks like she has no neck; however, that could just be the way she is standing in that one picture... or it could be because she is a little shorter than Jumba intended... so will try not to judge it too harshly until I have at least seen a few more pictures... but based on this... definitely liked the old look better even if he was huge compared to Stitch.


I had the same thought as you Vectron... that this change is because of WDW... for the most part she has only been seen in parades and shows up until now so the size difference between Stitch and Angel wasn't so obvious; however, if they are going to start doing meet and greets together it would be very obvious very quickly.

We didn't notice how much bigger she was until we had a Stitch and Angel meet and greet in DLP and then it was immediately obvious.

So, did this design appear anywhere else or did they give up on it? I don't really want to see it again to be honest. :S

I like the original version of Angel better as well. That version of her looks cuter.

Excluding Tokyo Disney, Disneyland Paris is the only Disney Park that has Angel, she is also a popular and well recognized character in Paris! and it was announced priviosly that Angel will still appear randomly in Paris, because she was a regular character at DLP in a Show during 2010. So after her new make-over she didn't appear anywhere else than Tokyo! But I'm sure Paris will have Angel in her new look since she is popular and they like her.

As expected, Angel has finally made her way back to Disneyland Paris after her recent "Make-over". I have to honestly say, she looks stunning and MACH more beautiful than her older look. That's not just talk, but something you could see in realty. Everyone so far are very excited about Angel's facelift and make-over! So....WELCOME BACK ANGEL!!!

What happened to Angel in one of the Discoveryland celebrates shows?

I saw a video where she ran off quickly, but looking at still pictures she was covering her eye with her hand and according to witnesses she ran off and was escorted away by cast members.

Anybody heard anything about it or did anybody else see it?

After seeing the new Angel in person I definitely like the "new look" Angel better.... that first picture really did not do her justice.
