In a new shake-up that's been dividing opinion, Minnie Mouse is set to ditch the dress for a brand new look that brings her firmly into the 21st century.

To mark the 30th anniversary of the Disneyland Paris theme park, Minnie will swap out the red dress for a stylish dark blue suit complete with trousers and a blazer, designed by Stella McCartney.

Minnie will rock the look during the theme park's anniversary party in March, which will also coincide with Women's History Month.

But some people aren't happy about it, some even thinking that the move represents "woke society ruining everything."

Disneyland Paris shared a sneak peek at Minnie's outfit earlier this week, tweeting: "Stella McCartney has designed Minnie Mouse's very first pantsuit, and it's gorgeous. #DisneylandParis30."

And speaking to D23 about the collaboration, Stella – who is the daughter of Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney – said she "can't wait" for Disney fans to see the new look in person at the event.

She said: “Minnie has always had a special place in my heart. 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!

“This new take on her signature polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation. She will wear it in honour of Women’s History Month in March 2022. I can’t wait for you to see this new look at Walt Disney Studios Park!”

The unveiling of Minnie's new look has split opinions online, as while some are embracing the change others aren't impressed.

One person said on Twitter: "I applaud Stella McCartney and Disney for bringing Minnie into the 21st Century."

And another agreed, adding: "I think it's cute!"

But someone else argued against the blue colour scheme, stating: "The idea of the pantsuit is so cute, but we need to have the iconic Minnie Mouse colours to go with it!"

The criticism was also more scathing in some quarters, with one person writing: "This is sad and disappointing."

"Minnie Mouse was perfect and wasn't offending ANYONE. Now you're trying to make her more masculine. Talk about screwing with people's heads," added another person.

One woman took it to another level, saying: "Just stop. Woke society is ruining literally everything."
