Thumbs down Minnie Mouse swaps dress for TUXEDO as it’s ‘more inclusive’

Iconic Minnie Mouse has swapped her polka dot dress for a more formal, dark blue tuxedo, the BBC reports. The dress was a staple for Minnie, who has worn it for over 100 years. So Disney, why now, in a pandemic, when your money could be better spent elsewhere?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-60169196



Minerva’s ‘progressive’ transformation was designed by none other than Stella McCartney, 50, who was tasked with creating a more ‘inclusive’ figure to celebrate Women’s History Month and 30 years of Disneyland Paris

A weird decision.

I mean it's not exactly character destroying, but it is a bizarre take from Disney.

Despite the change being just a temporary one, it has been met with a mixed reaction online from Disney fans.
Minnie will debut the blue tuxedo in Disney's Paris entertainment resort from March 2022, where she will wear it in time for Women's History Month.
It’s literally for one month

Stella must have spent ages on that design

Taking away her feminity isn't the most inclusive thing tbh, even if it is just for a month.

How is not wearing a dress taking away her femininity? Do you know any women that only wear dresses?

Oh no, a cartoon character is temporarily going to wear a designer power suit rather than a dress, how will the world cope?

rather than thinking it to do with politics or anything remotely just

Minerva has been oppressed into Western ideals of how a mouse should dress, not empowering those who may identify as a mouse.

It’s for one of the two Disney parks in the resort, just like many anniversaries, seasons and shows where she has different couture to wear, she will be available to meet in her classic dress throughout the resort.

Other than that, she’s got an outfit designed by a fashion powerhouse, it looks fierce, I can’t wait to see the finished product.

When they're putting her in a suit rather than a dress to be more "inclusive", what else would they be trying to do?

What does making her look like she's about to lose a Presidential Election to a reality TV star achieve?

It was practically on loop on Disney Junior, alongside Doc McStuffins, Little Einsteins, and My Friends Tigger and Pooh.

Tigger and Pooh to be fair was actually quite amusing at times but they cancelled it .

Also they showed trailers between the kids shows for the older kids Disney channel shows, and for two years straight one was a clip from "The Wizards of Waverly Place" where Selena Gomez says something like "looks like my revenge... revunged...". Every 15 minutes or so. For years. To this day I can't hear the word revenge without hearing "looks like my revenge revunged" in my head.

Genuine trauma this stuff.
