Mickey Mouse fans have a reason to be excited! Walt Disney’s most famous animated character is going old-school in a short called Get A Horse!, which is supposed to hype fans up before the release of Frozen, scheduled to be released at the end of November this year.
For months, the Disney Animation Studios have been hinting that they have some never seen before Mickey Mouse footage that still has Walt Disney himself as Mickey’s voice.
Unfortunately, that didn’t mean that the entire short was authentic 1920s: it is a modern remake that combines 21st century 3D qualities with the old-school 2D, black and white animations that Disney once started with.
But don’t worry! According to EW, Mickey will actually be voiced by Walt Disney himself, except he was never knowingly involved in the episode. All Mickey’s words are based on previous recordings made before 1946, when Disney last did Mickey’s voice.
Get a Horse! will see Mickey and Minnie riding on a hay wagon in classic black-and-white, being chased by villain Peg-Leg Pete. Eventually, Mickey ends up being thrown into the screen, leaving a hole and landing on a stage in front of the audience when the animation suddenly turns 3D, as can be seen in the picture above.
The rest of the short will see various characters, including Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow, going back and forth between the two realities, turning the animation into a mix of modern 3D and the old-school 2D that makes it look so authentic.
When the animation will be revealed to the wider public is still unknown, but you can definitely expect it before the 27th of November, so that it can serve as a bit of extra advertisement for upcoming Disney animation Frozen!
