Get ready for an uproarious adventure as Disney unleashes a mayhem-filled Mickey Mouse multiverse in their highly anticipated 100th animated short film, “Steamboat Silly.” As part of the grand celebration for Disney’s 100th anniversary, the LEGO Group has already delighted fans with a series of commemorative sets. The recent release of seven captivating models, such as “43221 100 Years of Disney Animation Icons,” “43226 Disney Duos,” and “43227 Villain Icons,” has further ignited the excitement surrounding this monumental milestone.
Next month, Disney will grace our screens with a brand-new animated short featuring the iconic and beloved mascot, Mickey Mouse. Titled “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse: Steamboat Silly,” this whimsical adventure is set to premiere exclusively on Disney+ on July 28. Brace yourself as the first trailer introduces us to a mischievous scenario where multiple incarnations of Mickey Mouse embark on a chaotic escapade, leaving a trail of mouse-based mayhem in their wake.
The title of the short, “Steamboat Silly,” playfully pays homage to the groundbreaking 1928 animated masterpiece, “Steamboat Willie,” which marked the historic debut of Mickey Mouse himself. In this upcoming animated extravaganza, Mickey and his trusted friends find themselves in a race against time. They must prevent an army of black and white versions of Mickey Mouse from escaping the confines of old film reels, thus averting a potential catastrophe of epic proportions.
LEGO enthusiasts may recall the nostalgic release of the LEGO Ideas set “21317 Steamboat Willie” back in 2019. This remarkable monochromatic set, featuring both Mickey and Minnie Mouse, was inspired by the imaginative design submitted for review by the talented Máté “szabomate90” Szabó. The 751-piece masterpiece, now retired, paid homage to Mickey’s 90th anniversary and showcased a meticulously crafted brick-built S.S. Willie. The intricate model boasted captivating details, including moving steam pipes, rotating paddle wheels, and a functional crane, capturing the spirit of the classic animation.
The trailer for “Steamboat Silly” offers a tantalizing glimpse into the enchanting world of Disney’s 100th animated short. With its vibrant animation, nostalgic nods, and whimsical storyline, the film promises to captivate audiences of all ages.
