Disney’s Green Army Patrol opens the door to female troops in new Toy Story Land

CNN

( CNN) These life-size “little green army men” marching, fight, crawling and pose — and now women can, too.

The co-ed troops, based on the popular, plastic toy from the “Toy Story” movie franchise, will debut Saturday at Toy Story Land, Disney’s latest theme park addition at its Hollywood Studios in Orlando.

Tom Vazzana, indicate director at Walt Disney World Resort, said the move to include women in the Green Army Patrol was not “a ginormous political statement” but that “it just made sense.”
