Disney Plus has edited a casting couch reference from the film Toy Story 2.

The latest: Disney Plus has edited a casting couch reference from the film Toy Story 2; The line from the animated film came from the character Stinky Pete, played by Kelsey Grammer, as he told a pair of nearby two Barbie dolls, ‘You know, I’m sure I could get you a part in Toy Story 3’

‘A few scenes in the film have been slightly edited to remove nudity,’ a spokesperson for the streaming service told Variety. 

The Toy Story 2 edit had previously been done in conjunction with the re-release of the DVD when Toy Story 4 hit theaters last year, two years after dozens of high-ranking Hollywood executives and performers were accused of sexual misconduct.

The first major accusations in the movement were wage at producer Harvey Weinstein, 68, who had closely worked with Disney for 12 years through a partnership with his Miramax company that lasted from 1993 until 2005. Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob had left Miramax, which Disney sold off in 2010.

Weinstein remains in custody in New York in connection with the 23-year sentence he received for his rape and sexual assault conviction. The disgraced producer, who reportedly recovered after catching COVID-19, is also at the center of a prosecution in Los Angeles in connection with a pair of 2013 incidents.

Last week, the district attorney’s office charged him with felony sexual battery by restraint over a May 2010 incident at the Beverly Hills hotel that falls just within the decade-long statute of limitations.

‘As we gather corroborating evidence, we have reached out to other possible sexual assault victims,’ Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in a statement. ‘If we find new evidence of a previously unreported crime, as we did here, we will investigate and determine whether additional criminal charges should be filed.’
