A hand-drawn, black-and-white Mickey Mouse animated short film will debut June 11 at the Annecy Animation Festival in Annecy, France, Walt Disney Animation Studios announced Tuesday.
The vintage-feeling short, which is called “Get a Horse,” features the voice of Walt Disney as Mickey Mouse.
The Burbank studio described the short as “never before seen,” but a studio spokeswoman, when asked if the short is newly made, refused to comment.
The enigmatic cartoon finds Mickey, his cheerful gal pal Minnie Mouse and their pals Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow enjoying a pastoral musical wagon ride—until Peg-Leg Pete shows up and tries to run them off the rode!
Presenting this “lost” Mickey short at Annecy will be filmmakers Lauren MacMullan (Wreck-It Ralph, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Simpsons), Dorothy McKim (Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice, The Ballad of Nessie, Meet the Robinsons) and legendary Disney artist and animator Eric Goldberg.
The next feature from Disney Animation, “Frozen,” opens Nov. 27.
