Minnie Mouse will be trading her iconic red polka dot dress for a pair of blue pants by Stella McCartney.
The announcement was made Tuesday on Twitter by Disneyland Paris, which offered a glimpse of the new outfit that was designed for the theme park’s upcoming 30th-anniversary celebration that launches in March for Women’s History Month, according to the New York Post.
In an image featured in the tweet, Minnie Mouse wears a blue polka dot powersuit complete with a blue polka dot bow on her head.
“Stella McCartney has designed Minnie Mouse’s very first pantsuit, and it’s gorgeous,” the account wrote.
Speaking with D23, the official Disney fan club, McCartney said she was “delighted” about the opportunity to recreate Minnie Mouse’s look.
“Minnie has always had a special place in my heart,” McCartney said. “We share the same values. What I love about Minnie is the fact that she embodies happiness, self-expression, authenticity, and that she inspires people of all ages around the world. Plus, she has such great style!”
McCartney added that the new design makes Minnie Mouse “a symbol of progress for a new generation.”
“She will wear it in honor of Women’s History Month in March 2022,” she said. “I can’t wait for you to see this new look at Walt Disney Studios Park!”
This is not the first time Minnie Mouse has donned pants. In 2019 Disney Cruise Line introduced Captain Minnie Mouse who, dressed in white pants and a red jacket, was created to “inspire the next generation of female leaders in the maritime industry,” according to a press release.
“Our Disney characters have a unique ability to inspire and connect with children, and we know Captain Minnie will encourage young girls around the world to consider a career in the maritime industry,” said Jeff Vahle, president of Disney Cruise Line at the time.
Minnie Mouse’s reimagined nautical outfit was part of a campaign that included youth programs and the funding of scholarships that were “designed to empower girls and young women to pursue careers in the cruise industry and chart a course for success.”
Have you received Salvation from Jesus the Messiah? Time is running out. Jesus will return very soon. The signs of His return are everywhere in this crazy world we are living in. Please read below so that you can be saved. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. The Words below are directly from the Bible, so you can trust them.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
