Thumbnail Filmstrip of Walt Disney Archives Disney Mickey and Minnie Color Maquette Images
DescriptionThis skillfully crafted, hand-painted sculpture set was developed through the shared efforts of The Walt Disney Archives and Enesco, LLC. Originating from an animation maquette in the company's collection, the production molds for this piece are made from a digital three-dimensional printout. To distinguish it from the original, the final production size varies approximately 10 percent. This colored edition set is one of a sequentially numbered, randomly distributed limited edition of 2,000. "I loved the idea of making a Mickey film that felt like a newly discovered 1928 short..." - Lauren MacMullen, Director, Get A Horse! Premiering on June 11, 2013, the animated short is a masterful blend of classic black-and-white, hand-drawn animation paired with contemporary full-color, computer generated animation. Reminiscent of vintage Disney cartoons, the story stars Mickey, Minnie and their classic nemesis, Peg-Leg Pete, in a tale of romance, drama and hijinks as the characters jump seamlessly between two different eras. In a novel surprise, Walt Disney, the original voice of Mickey Mouse, returns to the silver screen and provides all of Mickey's dialogue - carefully crafted from vintage shorts. The exuberant Mickey and Minnie character maquettes from Get A Horse! Were initially designed and hand-sculpted in clay by artist Andrea Blasich. The characters feature the elongated "rubber hose" limbs and exaggerated poses exemplified in animated shorts from the late 1920s.
