For Disneyland Paris’ 20th Anniversary Fashion Designer Alber Elbaz was asked to give Minnie Mouse a makeover and a new modern style. They released this video last month as part of the promotion.

A lovely new animated short returns Mickey Mouse to his place of prominence atop the animation pantheon at Walt Disney Animation Studios. In this stylized video, Minnie Mouse runs out of croissants at the cafe she works at in Paris and Mickey Mouse has to take heroic action to deliver the pastries before Minnie’s customers become irate. Oh yes, it’s also in French.
It’s a classic Mickey Mouse plot with many wonderful sight gags and glimpses of some of your favorite Disney characters.
This film is the first of 19 new Mickey Mouse and gang animated shorts scheduled to come from Disney in an attempt to relaunch the classic characters for today’s youth. If they keep producing films of this quality it’s also bound to win over those who have a fond spot in their hearts for the characters they remember from their own childhoods.

Another look at some cool Disney themed shoes. Vans makes these sneakers and slip ons as part of their Couture line. The Minnie Mouse shows have a neat felt covering and the Mickey ones really show some attitude. These are only available in Japan, of course.
I was fortunate enough to be the guest of Disney for the opening of Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawai’i. The place is fantastic.
Before the trip I wasn’t sure whether or not the magic of Hawai’i needed a touch of Disney’s, but the fit is seamless. The combined storytelling of the islands and the mouse make for an amazing adventure. Really. I’m already making plans to return with my family so that they can also enjoy all that Aulani has to offer.
Walt Disney’s fascination with outer space has been evident since the 1955 Disneyland episode “Man In Space” and the X1 attraction at Disneyland. So it’s nice to see Disney keep up the tradition with a special space themed Mickey Mouse Clubhouse special.
Yesterday, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse welcomed NASA astronauts Chris Ferguson, Doug Hurley, Sandy Magnus and Rex Walheim to The Disney Studios in Burbank, CA where they greeted kids from the East Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club and gave a special presentation on their final space shuttle mission before the kids enjoyed a preview screening of Disney Junior’s new “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Space Adventure” special premiering on Disney Channel Monday, September 12.
