March 8, 2013 – The Mickey Mouse Short Film Croissant de Triomphe Premieres Online
On March 8, 2013, the first of a new series of Mickey Mouse short films premiered online. The short, entitled Croissant de Triomphe, has Paul Rudish as its executive producer and director, bringing a new art style to the decades-old character. Rudish is known for his work with Dexter’s Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls, both of which are known for their distinctive art style. The shorts, created as a blend of 2D hand-drawn and 3D computer animations, seek to take the classic Disney characters in new adventures worldwide. In the short film, Mickey must deliver a bag full of croissants to Minnie before her café patrons rebel; it also features a brief cameo by Cinderella and her prince.
