We’ve got wonderful news to start the week: Our friends at Disney+ have just announced an all-new animated shorts series that’s truly made for you and me. The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse comes from the team behind Disney Channel’s Emmy® Award-winning Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts and it arrives on Disney+ on Mickey’s birthday, November 18.
The new Disney+ original series will feature Mickey and his best pals—Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto—as they embark on their greatest adventures yet in a wild and zany world where the magic of Disney makes the impossible possible. Fans are in store for a mouse-terful combination of laugh-out-loud comedy, modern settings, timeless stories, new music, and the unmistakable art style of the Mickey Mouse shorts, which put a contemporary twist on a classic look that harkens back to Mickey’s 1928 beginnings.
Emmy Award-winning artist and director Paul Rudish serves as executive producer and supervising director of The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse, which is produced by Disney Television Animation. Christopher Willis, the Emmy Award-nominated composer of the Mickey Mouse shorts, also provides the music for this series.
While you’re counting down to Mickey’s birthday and the series premiere, all five seasons of the multi-award-winning Mickey Mouse shorts are available to stream now on Disney+. Following The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse’s November 18 debut, two new shorts will roll out on Disney+ every Friday beginning November 27. Ten shorts will premiere this year, with 10 additional shorts set for Summer 2021.
