There’s something so peaceful and comforting about watching a Mickey Mouse holiday film during the holiday season. Even as an adult I have an appreciation for the cartoon Mickey Mouse movies and shows as it’s what I grew up on and it’s very nostalgic. Disney has now announced that they are releasing two new Mickey Mouse holiday movies this year on both the Disney Channel and Disney Junior, and I can’t be the only one that’s insanely excited! One movie will be released for Halloween and the other for the Christmas holiday season.
Here is the plot line for each new movie, per D23:
Mickey’s Tale of Two Witches—Thursday, October 7, on Disney Junior
On Halloween, Mickey tells Pluto a story about two witches-in-training, Minnie the Wonderful and Daisy Doozy, who must pass four tests to graduate from the Witch Academy in Happy Haunt Hills. While Daisy isn’t confident about passing, she and Minnie join forces, along with Count Mickula and the gang, to defeat a mischievous ghost. Minnie and Daisy learn that working together makes their magic and their friendship stronger. Rob LaDuca and Mark Seidenberg are executive producers.
Mickey and Minnie Wish Upon a Christmas—Thursday, December 2, on Disney Junior
After a series of mishaps, Mickey, Minnie and the gang are separated all over the world and must try to get back to Hot Dog Hills by Christmas Eve. A mysterious and jolly stranger shows up to tell them about The Wishing Star, which could be the secret to bringing everybody home in time to celebrate together. LaDuca and Seidenberg are executive producers.
Now that Disney+ has become such a popular streaming platform in households all over the world many will be wondering if these two news holiday movies will also be available on Disney+. D23 only mentioned that the movies would be coming to Disney Junior and Disney Channel, but we would not be surprised to see them come to Disney+ shortly after premiering.
