Disney Unveils “Get a Horse!” Mickey Mouse Poster

Walt Disney Animation Studios released the poster today for its new short Get a Horse! that will debut next week at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. The director of the film Lauren MacMullan, producer Dorothy McKim, as well as animator Eric Goldberg, will attend Annecy to unveil the short, which features a vocal track by Walt Disney himself as the voice of Mickey.

    It’s not CG, so I don’t see the point of watching this…

    This had me fooled for a second. I thought I was looking at an authentic poster from the early 30s or late 1920s of a lost Mickey Mouse cartoon. Kudos to whoever did this great poster! I have more confidence that the animators will be able to do justice to Walt’s voice acting skills and bring Mickey to life once again.

    gasp, eric goldberg working on an oldschool mickey? i think im in love

  • geoff

    The poster alone has my psyched and eager to watch this. I’m a fan of the classic Mickey’s. I only hope the actual short lives up to the promise of the poster!

  • Anon

    Dorothy McKim is the producer of the short, not the director.

      Thanks for the correction. I’ve updated the post to make it accurate.

    Can anyone clarify is this a unreleased short from the 20′s/30′s or is this new animation?

      New animation, but invoking the style of early sound rubber hose cartoons.

  • Jonah Sidhom

    That poster is impressively authentic looking. I’m excited to see how this turns out!

  • Love 2D

    I wonder if Mark Henn and some of the other 2D guys worked on this?

  • Ivan Dixon

    I love Lauren MacMullan’s work on Mission Hill and she’s directed some of the most lively episodes of The Simpsons in the last 15 years. This should be fun!

  • spikeshinizle

    Can’t wait for this one. Very cool to hear they’re using Walts Mickey voice.

  • Tradigital?

    Is this being produced in the same toon-boom heavy vein as ‘Croissant de Triomphe’? I’ve seen it billed elsewhere as a traditionally animated short. Does anyone know, or do I have to wait for it to be released to find out?

  • Shazbot

    Wait, wait, WAIT…Eric Goldberg worked on this????? EPICNESS!!!! Must see! Must see!

  • peteykins

    Oh, wow, if this cartoon is even half as “rubber-hosey” as the poster, I’m going to LOVE it.

  • Matt Norcross

    I’m really excited about this!! It also leaves me to ask this question to Mr. Amidi, don’t you think that report about Disney getting rid of 9 of their animators and assuming they’re done with hand-drawn animation altogether was even a bit dishonest on your part? I looked on sources like Animation Magazine and others, and I didn’t hear any news about them being completely done with 2D. Disney’s not done with the artform, and this short and the fact that Pixar’s Lasseter is the executive producer is proof of that.

    • AmidAmidi

      No one ever said Disney was done with 2D, just that they gutted their hand-drawn animation division by getting rid of many veterans, which they did.

      • Matt Norcross

        So it looks like I was the one being dishonest here. Sorry about that, I should have read your article further. It was just that the comment section on your article about Disney gutting their hand-drawn animation division was flooded with people assuming Disney was done with the artform, and tons of unnecessary hate for the studio as a result of those misinterpretations. Anyway, I’m excited about this short, and I hope it shows people that Disney isn’t done with the field. One final note, I’m truly sorry for accusing you of dishonesty. It was rude on my part, and I sincerely apologize.

      • Matt Norcross

        Hi, It’s me again. Well, it turns out that an article on HitFlix.com talking about “Get A Horse!” completely distorted your article about Disney’s hand-drawn animation division, saying that you wrote about them “dismantling” the division, not just gutting it. This is completely shameful on their part, and you should explain the situation to HitFlix’s editor in chief.
