A new documentary titled “Mickey: The Story of a Mouse” is coming to Disney+ later this year. The 93-minute doc just debuted at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas, and is directed by Jeff Malmberg who wanted to tell Mickey’s story “from a place of respect and admiration, but it had to be honest.”
“Mickey: The Story of a Mouse” tells the story of Mickey that embodies the American ideals of optimism and kindness, and the Mickey that stands for some occasionally iffy practices by a multinational corporation. Along the way, he also dips into the ways that Mickey has changed throughout the years.
The project features Eric Goldberg, Mark Henn, Randy Haycock, Floyd Norman, Carmenita Higginbotham, Rebecca Cline, Kevin Kern, and Bob Iger.
The documentary also features a new Mickey short, called “Mickey in a Minute,” a kind of truncated “Into the Spider-Verse”-style short that goes through the different Mickey eras, animated by legends like Mark Henn and Eric Goldberg.
An exact Disney+ release date for “Mickey: The Story of a Mouse” has not been announced yet.
