Mickey is back, and is his ornery old self once again.
No, really. New Mickey is old Mickey.
And by old, I mean 1928 old.
Disney’s new Mickey short, Get a Horse!, is attempt at capturing the Mickey of yesteryear. Using a combination of hand drawn animation and digital effects to simulate film wear, Disney touts Get a Horse! as a “lost” Mickey short.
It’s great to see Disney utilizing their mascot in animated form again (aside from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.) The recent shorts have been a pleasant surprise, and I look forward to more from the Mouse.
From Cine Coulisses:
After Paperman, Walt Disney Animation Studios we prove once again that they know their heritage and intend to use it. A technical bid, they prefer the technical (new or not, but always used cleverly) serving a true story, touching and moving.
Mickey, Minnie, Horace, Pete, they are all there … and we offer a great moment in cinema and emotion.

Get a Horse! is set to premiere before Disney’s upcoming film Frozen, due in theaters on November 27th.
