Mickey, Maybe, in a Feature Film

Don't you love how rumors get started? Somebody says something, another body takes it and calls it a 'scoop', and pretty soon the Martians have landed. In this case, it's not Martians, it's Mickey. Let's get to the gossip.

Mickey Mouse in a feature film?

Sure! Maybe. Rumor has it...

The rumor came from Brendon Connelly, a frequent contributor to BleedingCool.com, who recently interviewed long-time Disney animator Burny Mattinson.

Burny is the supervising story artist for Disney's new film, Winnie the Pooh. Brendon expected the interview to cover Burny's work on that film, with the de rigeur stroll down memory lane, and so it does: but like any good interviewer, Brendon asked Burny about his next project.

Burny said: "I am working on just an idea of my own which is basically a Mickey, Donald, Goofy feature film idea. We have to present it first to the bosses to get the green light."

And from that the hot rumor arose about Mickey Mouse in a feature film.

Sure! Maybe...

Burny has an idea for a feature film starring Mickey, Donald, and Goofy. He hasn't shared it with his 'bosses'. (It sounds like he shared it with Brendon Connelly first!) When he shares it with his bosses, it might get the green light, it might not.

So when, inevitably, someone asks you whether you've heard about the big new Mickey Mouse feature film that Disney plans to start shooting yesterday, you'll be able to reply:

Sure! Maybe...

Don't stop there! More Tidings Await...
