Recently Disney unveiled a look at Minnie Mouse sporting a new black and blue pants suit designed by Stella McCartney in what appears to be an outfit for Disneyland Paris 30th Anniversary Celebration that starts on March 6th. Fans are losing it.
Keep in mind this is just one of two outfits she will wear for the celebration. The other one is a futuristic iridescent Pink dress. Just like Walt Disney World’s 50th Celebration the characters are getting special outfits.
It is very unlikely that this is a permanent change as characters do get special outfits for different occasions and locations. For example Minnie and Mickey are wearing special outfits at the Magic Kingdom for the 50th Anniversary Celebration.
Minnie has a pantsuit, in her traditional colors, as the upcoming captain of the Disney Wish.
This is nothing new and in cases like special events, they are usually temporary. It’s all about grabbing attention like they do in comics with gimmicky events to get people to buy a book.
Disney makes all kinds of money on Minnie’s signature look, so I don’t think it’s going away anytime soon.
The entire announcement has got people calling names and making it about politics on Twitter, because it’s Twitter. I’m glad to know that Minnie wearing a pantsuit in Paris is indicative of American politics.
I think you can all calm down as it’s for Disneyland Paris and I do not think it’s permanent. This happens all the time at Disney parks and events. She wears pants sometimes, but her iconic red (or pink) with white polka dot look is probably not going anywhere soon.
