An enigmatic Disney short titled Mickey Mouse in ‘Get a Horse’ will have its world premiere at the Annecy Animation Festival on June 11. This never-before-seen, black-and-white, hand-drawn short features Walt Disney as the voice of the iconic mouse. The plot 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 road!
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. We have a feeling we’re going to find out a lot more about this mysterious offering after the short premieres at the festival, but for now the Mouse House is trying to keep the details a big secret. Frankly, we’re just happy that we get to put Disney and 2D animation in the same sentence once again!
