Mondo Announces New Disney Mickey Mouse Pins

Mondo has announced a new partnership with Disney, and tomorrow, the high-end collectibles maker will release 2 Disney enamel pins featuring the beloved and historical True Original icon, Mickey Mouse. 

Tom Whalen and DKNG Studios offer up their treatments of Sorcerer Mickey and the classic Mickey. 

“Imagination is often associated with Disney, and rightfully so. Through their films, animated classics, and characters, Disney’s pantheon has inspired generations, old and young, to dream big,” Mondo creative director for toys/collectibles Brock Otterbacher said in a statement. “For us here at Mondo, it’s no different. We’ve all had our imagination stirred by Disney in one form or another in the work we do — whether it’s to design better, dig deeper for inspiration, or just add more heart. With this in mind, we couldn’t be more proud of what we’re bringing to both Disney and Mondo fans alike. From our pins and tiki mugs, as well as other fun items down the line, we’re taking our queue from Walt himself — ‘If you can dream it, you can do it.’”

Behold…The Limited Edition Collector’s Series $300 Disney Gift Card Honoring 90 Years of Mickey Mouse

Justin Hamana, Graphic Designer with Walt Disney Imagineering, developed the concept of a crystal-encrusted Disney Gift Card to honor Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary. Specialists from Swarovski in Austria developed a brand-new way to adhere crystals to the entire face of the card, something that had never been done before. 

All 5,000 cards are made with a metal core, encased in a protective plastic, and encrusted with over 2,500 premium Swarovski crystals.The custom box is almost as stunning as the card itself. Ready for display, the magnetic-closure box is the first to carry the Disney Gift Card Collector’s Series insignia and includes a vellum certificate describing the grandeur of the card.

For $300, you receive one of the only 5,000 premium gift cards produced, nestled in a box ready for display, loaded with $90 redeemable for practically all things Disney — from Theme Park tickets, resort stays, Disney vacations and dining, and all the Mickey merchandise you could imagine at Disney locations across the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.

To Celebrate Mickey Mouse’s 90th Anniversary, Disney Animator Mark Henn Created The Painting “Spreading Happiness Around The World”

Mickey Mouse’s new birthday portrait was revealed today at San Diego Comic-Con. Titled “Spreading Happiness Around the World,” the painting by legendary Walt Disney Animation Studios animator Mark Henn honors Mickey’s 90th anniversary. The unveiling of the new work—the latest in a longstanding series of Mickey birthday portraits—took place during the panel “Celebrating 90 Years of Mickey Mouse with D23: The Official Disney Fan Club.”

Since his big-screen debut in Steamboat Willie on November 18, 1928, Mickey has been the global ambassador for The Walt Disney Company. From the beloved Mickey Mouse Club to today’s Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts, Mickey’s optimistic outlook and endearing personality continue to delight fans around the world every day. D23 and the Walt Disney Archives, in partnership with Walt Disney Animation Studios, commissioned Henn to paint Mickey’s official birthday portrait. Henn follows in the footsteps of artists such as Disney Legend John Hench, who crafted five of Mickey’s official portraits.

“It is one of the great honors of my career to be asked to paint Mickey’s 90th birthday portrait,” says Henn. “I was greatly inspired by the portraits painted by John Hench. I wanted to capture some of the same style and sense of youth that John achieved in his portraits.” The painting will appear on the Fall 2018 cover of Disney twenty-three, the quarterly publication sent exclusively to Gold Members of D23.

We Need To Make This Steamboat Willie LEGO Set A Reality

As classic Disney fans, we’re obsessed with all things Steamboat Willie—which is why we’re loving the latest LEGO Ideas submission.

If you aren’t familiar with LEGO Ideas, it’s a program that lets fans of the building blocks pitch their own design to the company. A model needs to be created, photographed, and submitted—alongside a convincing proposal as to why the set should become an official LEGO product.

Sounds cool, right? What’s even more exciting is that one of the latest proposals is inspired by the beloved Mickey short. The creator of this set argued his (convincing) case:

“Steamboat Willie is the first fully synchronized sound cartoon directed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks. It was the debut of Mickey Mouse in a cartoon, the first to be distributed and the third to be produced,” he says. “So as an animator and a LEGO fan I’d like to pay my respect to that marvelous production, which…inspired a lot of talented artists.”

Can’t argue with that!

This set, which will include 156 bricks, needs to receive 10,000 votes before it has the chance to be reviewed by the company and approved as a new LEGO set. As of this post, the set has received 6,000 votes. With over 160 more days to go, we’re sure with the help of both Disney and LEGO fans, we can make this set a reality.

Just visit LEGO Ideas and vote for this brilliant creation!

Disneyland Resort will host a celebration cavalcade for Mickey Mouse, featuring some of his special friends and the Disneyland Band, starting at “it’s a small world” and pausing for a special moment at Sleeping Beauty Castle before continuing down Main Street, U.S.A., to Town Square. There will be plenty of chances to sing “Happy Birthday” along the way, and of course, “Happy Birthday, Mickey!” buttons will be distributed to park guests.

Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland Paris is also where the party’s at! Be prepared to celebrate Mickey’s birthday just before “Disney Magic on Parade,” as well as during the Lucky Nugget Saloon show at Disneyland park and in “Mickey and the Magician” at Walt Disney Studios park. And what’s a birthday without cake? Guests can find plenty to snack on at locations around the resort.

Mysterious Mickey Mouse Short From Walt Disney Animation To Screen At Annecy Animation Festival On June 11

mickey-mouse-in-get-a-horse-post

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.

Disney Is Producing New Mickey Mouse Shorts & Premiered “Croissant de Triomphe” Today

Mickey_scooter

Nineteen hand-drawn Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts will debut on television and online beginning June 28th. The cartoons will evoke the classic Mickey look, as Disney explains in a statement:

“With the slapstick feel of classic Mickey Mouse, the series of cartoon shorts presents Mickey in a broad range of humorous situations that showcase his pluck and rascality, along with his long-beloved charm and good heartedness.  Each cartoon short finds Mickey in a different contemporary setting including Santa Monica, New York, Paris, Beijing, Tokyo, Venice and the Alps, facing a silly situation, a quick complication and an escalation of physical and visual gags.  The stories also feature genuine heartfelt and heroic moments as Mickey explores and experiences life with his comical partners: Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, and Pluto.

Below is a preview of “Croissant de Triomphe,” the first one in the series.
