One of the most noticeable differences is that the Green M&M swapped out her signature boots for a pair of sneakers, while Brown now wears a lower version of her previous heels.

All of the characters also boast a more defined shape and a refined color palette, as their arms and legs went from a shade of tan to a clear hue that's tinted to match their vibrant shell.

The personality changes will see Brown and Green becoming closer friends rather than rivals. Red, who can be seen as a bully with his mean streak, will be kinder, and anxious Orange will "embrace his true self, worries and all."
