Minnie Mouse Gets a Star!

Minnie Mouse Gets a Star!

Mickey Mouse is the most iconic animated character to receive a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  He received his star on November 13, 1978.  He has been followed by other notables such as Snow White on June 28, 1987 and Donald Duck in 2004.  Many beloved Disney icons have received stars including Tinker Bell, Winnie the Pooh, and Kermit the Frog.  But what about his beloved co-star?  Minnie Mouse?

Minnie Mouse made her theatrical debut 90 years ago in the iconic Steamboat Willie Cartoon.   She has been Mickey’s beloved co-star ever since. I guess since the new movement for equality in the arts, someone recognized that America’s Sweetheart deserved a star of her own!

The polka-dot bow wearing mouse is being honored upon her 90th anniversary in entertainment with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Minnie will receive her star on Monday, Jan. 22 at  11:30 a.m. PT at 6834 Hollywood Boulevard in front of Disney’s El Capitan Theatre, dedicated in the category of Motion Pictures. Congratulations Minnie!

Who else do you think deserves a star?

Unlocking the Vault

Unlocking the Vault

Have you ever been craving an old fashioned movie night and gone to the store to purchase a Disney Movie, only to find it unavailable?  Everyone knows that Disney is genius at marketing and separating you from your dollars, so what is up? It is the dreaded Disney Vault.

The “Disney Vault” is the term used by Disney for its policy of putting many of its most popular animated videos on moratorium.  Each Disney film is available for purchase for a limited time, after which it is put “in the vault” and not made available in stores for 7-10 years until it is once again released. Disney explains that it is a way to keep the titles fresh for new generations.

Don’t worry, you will probably always be able to buy Frozen.  There are only 16 movies which have been identified as “vault worthy”.  What are the 16 movies?  Snow White, Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, Bambi, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Lady & the Tramp, Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmatians, Jungle Book, The Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King.

Currently there are a lot of Disney movies available on Netflix.  That relationship is ending in 2019.  Disney will start two of its own subscription streaming services that will ultimately compete with Netflix, but have access to the entire Disney portfolio.  I know I will be a subscriber!snow white
