I made a whole bunch of Beauty and the Beast icons a little while ago.
Am putting links here to my icon journal so y'all can have a look if you want to.

David Gilson is a French Artist. In 2007, over being excited for Disney’s Black Princess, he created a plethora of wonderful artwork in anticipation.

Many of them created during earliest production in which the film was then titled The Frog Princess and the heroine was named Maddy the chambermaid. These works since have been passed around as if they were conceptual artwork during production. In part for being well done and existing a year prior to any real art released to the press and public.

As The Princess and The Frog hops towards five years since theatrical release, it it time to identify these great works of art as they are, fan art.

The right column showcases the beautiful pieces by Disney Artists. David Gilson’s fan artwork is used often when talking about natural hair for Tiana. Lorelay Bové, Sue Nichols, Chris Appelhans, Armand Baltazar and Kevin Gollaher have drawn natural hair in their concept art and unfortunately that aspect did not make it to realization.

David was contracted by Disney Publishing and Disney Consumer Products for Tangled in 2010. Hey, who knows maybe all the attention to his Tiana art landed him the job. We wish him the best in all his artistic endeavors! [SOURCE]

In Princess Tiana's debut appearance on Disney Junior's Emmy-winning series Sofia the First (Dec. 12), Anika Noni Rose reprises her role from the feature film The Princess and the Frog. She helps Sofia and her new friend, Winter (Alyson Hannigan), a young faun who has been cursed by an Ice Witch (Phylicia Rashad), learn that a true gift comes from the heart. [SOURCE]

ABC’s Once Upon a Time first look at Rapunzel.

"We went a little darker and freakier," says executive producer Edward Kitsis. "A little more horror story in the vein of [the 2004 movie] The Grudge.”

The long-locked damsel played by Alexandra Metz will be visited in her tower by Prince Charming as well as a mysterious hooded menace.


Unfortunately, it appears that Rapunzel will not be a recurring character on the show. As appears to be par for the course with characters of color on the show, from what I have read.
