Disney is planning to rename the franchise toy story franchise to Dollar General Entertainment, the company announced today.
The company said the change will be made “in the coming weeks.”
It will be in place for the first time in Disney’s history, with the toy story franchises in place since 2012.
The toy story properties, which include Disney and Pixar, include Winnie the Pooh, the Minions, The Lion King, Aladdin, and Frozen.
Disney has not announced the new name.
The new name will be announced at a special event in 2019, Disney said in a statement.
“We are pleased to announce the name change for the toy and entertainment franchise Dollar General,” the company said in the statement.
“It is a very meaningful and exciting step for us, and a reflection of the strong partnership that we have with Disney.
The name Dollar General is a brand name we have been using for years, and it is now a brand that will be synonymous with the Disney brand.”
The move comes as Disney prepares to unveil its 2019 fiscal year.
Earlier this month, Disney announced that it would rename the popular Winnie The Pooh toy to Disney’s The Lion Kingdom, the first step in a planned naming change.
The Disney Channel’s The Little Mermaid will also be renamed to Belle Isle, and Disney announced in September that it is adding two new live-action shows to its slate: Mulan and Mulan 2.
The news of the new names came after a backlash against the name changes from fans, who say they’re a symbol of the company’s push to embrace diversity.
The name change comes after the company faced backlash for changing its name of Toy Story to The Empire Strikes Back and The Incredibles to Toy Story 3 and Toy Story Land.
