Disney pays tribute to the icon of its study

Disney’s D23 Expo It has brought news in almost all the franchises that the studio manages, from Marvel to Indiana Jones. But how could it be otherwise, the event also had a slot to show the trailer for the documentary that The House of the Mouse will dedicate to its most characteristic icon and symbol: Mickey Mouse.

The release date of this piece that explains the origin and development of the character could not be more suitable. Mickey: The story of a mouse will arrive on the Disney + platform next November 18, coinciding with the date of creation of the most recognizable symbol of the study. The short trailer zooms in on footage of the company’s late creator and founder, Walt Disney. The most famous animation brand in the world has created unforgettable titles, already being an inseparable part of the history of the seventh art. But Walt wants to remind us of something in this piece. “It all started with a mouse”the voice of the creative genius resonates as the images of the different versions of the main character progress, traversing a journey that goes from the first original short Steamboat Willie to Mickey greeting children at theme parks.

Disney animation artist Floyd Norman will appear in the document, including several archive images as well as exclusive interviews as Rebecca Cline (director of the Walt Disney Archives), historian Carmenita Higgibotham or the archivist Kevin Kern. The piece, in addition to being a tribute to the almost hundred-year-old creature, will talk about the meaning and the controversies around what is the cornerstone of an entire industry. “Mickey Mouse is a symbol that we see every day of our lives. We all know Mickey, but he means different things to different people. We felt that he deserved a light-hearted but also honest documentary. I’m glad Disney has allowed us to delve into the evolutions and meanings of the world’s most famous mouse.”said director Jeff Malmberg.

The short film with which Mickey Mouse debuted consisted of 10 thousand drawings, taking between six months and two years until we could see the seven and a half minute adventure in which the mouse faces the villainous Willy. “It all started with a mouse” are words that say much more than we might think at first. Walt Disney believed that simple things and the first steps were essential for achieving a promising future and that is why the head of the company decided to be inspired by Charles Chaplin for the birth of the rodent: “We wanted something cool, and we thought of a little mouse that would have some Chaplin nostalgia…a little guy trying to do the best he could.”
