I know some of the news I'm reporting is a few days old but I've been gone and am trying to catch up. I don't know if anyone has seen it but there is a great article over on Animated-Views.com with an interview with Disney Legends Andreas Deja and Mark Henn about the new Walt Disney Animation Studios new short "How to hook up your home theater" staring Goofy.
I can't wait to see this when it's released in the fall... possibly with Enchanted maybe? The poster for it is retro 50's check it out...
Hopefully the Studio will ramp up and do two to four of these a year... they already have six in production so I hope at least a couple of those will come out every year. I also want the other originals (Mickey, Donald and Pluto) to appear in shorts too... I would relish the chance to see Donald staring in another short!
The six in production are:
"How to hook up your Home Theater" staring Goofy, directed by Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers.
"Golgo’s Guest" about a lonely Russian frontier guard and his encounter with a space alien, directed by Chris Williams(this is the project that landed him directing American Dog).
"Prep And Landing" the Christmas tale of two inept Elves readying a house for Santa’s visit.
"The Ballad Of Nessie" which is a stylized account of the origin of the famous Loch Ness monster.
And two other unnamed shorts that are currently working their way through the pipeline, one of which is just starting production.
I can't wait to see them all. How about you?
