It was released on both VHS and DVD by Walt Disney Home Entertainment on September 3, 2002.
What is Mickey’s House of Villains about?
It is Halloween night at the House of Mouse, and a lot of villains are showing up. Jafar has a trick in store for the usual heroes of the House, but the villains have to wait until midnight for him to unleash it.
After a series of cartoons, Jafar, along with his new henchmen Captain Hook, Cruella de Vil, Ursula and Hades take over the house with the musical number “It’s Our House Now!” and all the other villains soon join Jafar’s plan. The heroes, princesses and other characters are trapped in the kitchen while Mickey and several others are thrown out into the street. They witness the House’s name being changed to the House of Villains.
Mickey, Donald and Goofy try to take their House back, but Chernabog stops them from entering the building. Minnie makes her own attempt after the second-to-last cartoon, but is thrown out casually by Hook. After the last cartoon, Mickey dresses in his sorcerer outfit from Fantasia (and Fantasia 2000) and challenges Jafar to a magical duel using fireballs. Just when Mickey’s sorcerer hat is knocked off, Aladdin escapes from the kitchen, flying on the magic carpet and gives Daisy Duck the magical lamp. Daisy hands it to Mickey who uses the lamp to suck Jafar into it. The rest of the villains run away and the House of Mouse is returned to normal.
When is Mickey’s House of Villians Coming To Disney Plus?
Mickey’s House of Villians has been a highly requested movie to be added to Disney Plus, but as it stands, the movie isn’t available on Disney+ in any region.
Many were expecting the movie to arrive during the Halloween season, naturally, but that didn’t quite happen. Disney has released a Halloween collection on Disney+ but Mickey’s House of Villians wasn’t included in that either.
Disney doesn’t typically share their plans on when a specific title will be added to the streaming service. New content is usually announced during the middle of the month for the following month. This gives us our best indication on what’s coming to Disney+ in the near future.
It’s also possible that Disney just hasn’t had an opportunity yet to rework the show for Disney+. The series is almost 20 years old, technology has, of course, changed dramatically during that time and there are certain adjustments needed to be made for Disney+.
