When the Walt Disney Studios found the long lost Mickey Mouse short, Get a Horse, ripples ran through the animation industry. The short debuts soon, and we’re still getting images from the movie that featured Walt Disney as Mickey Mouse.
Years and years and years ago, Walt Disney provided the voice for Mickey Mouse. It was the only time the entertainment empire builder did that. For whatever reason, Get a Horse was never released, lost it seemed, forever. A few months ago, the short was found in the Disney vaults, and next week, the movie will finally have its debut.
Every year there always seems to be that one animated movie that all the “adults” go crazy for. This year it is, without a doubt, Wreck-It Ralph. The nostalgia factor alone is going to drive people to the theaters, and the studios obviously know it with these retro game promos they have released.
Disney began production today on “Saving Mr. Banks,” the account of Walt Disney’s twenty-year pursuit of the film rights to P.L. Travers’ popular novel, Mary Poppins, and the testy partnership the upbeat filmmaker develops with the uptight author during the project’s pre-production in 1961.

Donald Duck. Icon, of the animated cinema. Donald Duck, a character that’s been around longer than most of your Grandparents. Does Donald’s age turn his comic foray into a fine vintage wine? Or just sour grapes with taste of sweaty feet?
In a recent Major Spoilers Podcast, I attempted to give a quick rundown of the crap that went down at the Walt Disney Studios in the late 80s and early 90s that almost had the animation arm of the company shuttered for good.Â My rundown was based on the stories I had heard from those in the know, the books I had read on the subject, and a good dose of personal experience.Â A much better way to find out how the company went from zero to hero can be found in the upcoming Waking Sleeping Beauty documentary.
I know this won’t be coming to my town, so I’m going to have to wait until I’m offered a chance to review the film to see it.
