There’s been some buzz about this lately, and it looks like the first new short is available for viewing.
Disney’s got a new series of animated shorts featuring Mickey Mouse. In all, there will be a total of 19 animated shorts featuring Mickey and friends. These are done in the traditional 2D animation (ironic, since Disney just ditched 2D as a medium for animated feature-length movies) and have a very distinct 1930’s feel to them.
I’ll admit, I didn’t latch on immediately until after I saw the first short, “Croissant de Triomphe”. I especially like the throwback “Pac Man” eyes being used on the characters again.
It’s been announced that the series of animated shorts will be available to watch on Disney Channel, Disney.com, and WATCH Disney Channel, beginning June 28
Here’s the first short, titled “Croissant de Triomphe”, complete with description below the video.
“Croissant de Triomphe”
Mickey must deliver croissants to Minnie’s cafe, battling street traffic and other Parisian obstacles along the way.
We’ve also got descriptions for two more of the upcoming shorts (thanks D23) below.
Mickey longs to visit Minnie atop her mountaintop chalet but quickly realizes that the threat of avalanche has made the trek up the mountain more challenging than usual.
Mickey and Donald try to buy lunch from a beachside snack shack but are unceremoniously turned down because of the classic “No shirt, no shoes, no service” admonition (of course, Mickey doesn’t wear a shirt and Donald doesn’t wear shoes!).
