Mickey’s Movies: The Theatrical Films of Mickey Mouse Out Now
Theme Park Press’s latest book release is “Mickey’s Movies: The Theatrical Films of Mickey Mouse” by Gijs Grob. Here is the official description:
In this definitive book about the cinematic career of Mickey Mouse, animation historian Gijs Grob analyzes each of Mickey’s theatrical films, in chronological order, with introductory essays, plot summaries, and notes about the talented creatives who brought Mickey to the silver screen.
Grob divides Mickey’s filmography into seven parts, beginning with his first primitive efforts in 1928 and continuing through Get a Horse! in 2013, with substantial sections about Mickey’s “barnyard” years, the introduction of his friends and rivals, and his “settling down” to cartoon prosperity, as Goofy, Pluto, and Donald eclipse his fame.
The book also includes a look at Mickey’s “doppelgangers,” the little-remembered Foxy, Milton, and Rita; a list of Mickey’s Academy Award nominations; comprehensive “show notes” that include release dates and the names of the animators, storymen, layout artists, musicians, directors, and others who created each Mickey film; and extensive notes and index.
Throughout, Grob stays opinionated, pointing out flaws where he finds them, and not letting Mickey (or Disney) off the hook for a poor performance.
