From the Disney Insider
It’s no secret that we absolutely love the recent Mickey Mouse series of shorts that air on Disney Channel and Disney XD. The series, now in its third season, does a wonderful job of capturing the feeling of classic Mickey Mouse cartoons (including the famous “rubber hose” design and animation aesthetic) but updates the characters to a thoroughly modern context. Creator Paul Rudish’s approach is fearlessly irreverent yet totally respectful of the characters and their shared history. One of the more wild experiments in a series of shorts almost exclusively defined by wild experimentation is this week’s incredible “Wish Upon a Coin” episode, premiering tonight at 9:25 p.m. on Disney Channel.
We don’t want to give too much away about the short, which was recently screened at D23 Expo to a rapturous response, but what makes “Wish Upon a Coin” so special is that it somehow takes place inside of Walt Disney’s 1937 classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Specifically, the short is set within the wishing well sequence of the animated breakthrough (yes, Mickey and Minnie even sing “I’m Wishing”). Of course, as is the case with Mickey Mouse, things take an abrupt left turn and an idyllic fairy tale quickly turns into a high stakes action sequence.
The new episode debuted on Friday, August 21st, but if you missed it you can see an exclusive clip below.
