Walt Disney front gateA parents' advocacy group is advising parents about a moment of propaganda included in a new film now in theaters.

Monica Cole of One Million Moms says Disney film "Toy Story 4” sneaked a controversial moment into the kids' film: a child being dropped off at school --- and later picked up --- by two mothers.

“And it was extremely obvious,” she says, “that these two moms were parenting the child together.”

The new film, featuring familiar characters Woody and Buzz Lightyear, has received positive reviews and predictably has a strong showing at the box office. 

Cole tells OneNewsNow the scene was so brief and subtle that many families may miss it but says it’s an obvious effort to normalize the lifestyle.

"We feel like families are being blindsided intentionally by Disney,” she says.
