Disney+ is celebrating Mickey Mouse’s birthday November 18 with the release of the new-animated shorts series, The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse. Two new shorts will release each Friday following this, starting November 27, with a total of 10 shorts this year and 10 set for Summer 2021.
Here is the synopsis:
In “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse,” it’s nothing but fun and excitement for Mickey and his best pals – Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto – as they embark on their greatest adventures yet, navigating the curveballs of a wild and zany world where the magic of Disney makes the impossible possible. Each seven-minute short is filled with laugh-out-loud comedy, modern settings, timeless stories, new music and the unmistakable classic art style of the “Mickey Mouse” shorts. The series will include stories inspired by various lands at Disney parks and cameos by classic Disney heritage characters.
The new art style is already pretty popular, since it’s introduction in 2013. I mean, if you’ve spent time at the parks or surrounded by small children, you’ve seen the toys, clothes, and probably even the Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railroad at Hollywood Studios in Florida.
“The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse” is produced by Disney Television Animation with Emmy Award-winning artist and director Paul Rudish serving as executive producer and supervising director. Christopher Willis, the Emmy Award-winning composer of the “Mickey Mouse” shorts, also provides the music for this series.
