Walt Disney may no longer be with us, and it has been over a half a century since he voiced Mickey Mouse, but that has not stopped the Walt Disney Company from creating a new Mickey Mouse cartoon using Walt’s voice.
In the newly released “Get a Horse!” technicians used snippets of Walt’s audio voicing Mickey Mouse between 1928 and 1947, and rearranged them to create a new story. The new story then runs the gamut from the old back and white films to new 3D effects.
Word by word they used and rearranged various snippets to make it sound like Walt was voicing over a new animated film made in 2013.
You can decide how successful this “reanimation” technique has been by checking out this video clip from “Get a Horse!”:
The length of the full animation is about seven minutes. It is being shown in movie theatres before the regular Disney movie Frozen starts. Some have said it is so wonderful it should be considered for an Oscar.
The Get a Horse! short was first seen at France’s Annecy International Animation Festival this past June. It received a nice response from both audiences and critics.
