The Search for Mickey Mouse (Unfinished Animated Film; 2002-2012)
(Redirected from The Search for Mickey Mouse (Unfinished 2002-2012 Animated Film))
In 2002, production on an all-new Disney animated feature began at Disney's Animation Studio in Florida called 'The Search for Mickey Mouse'.
The film is said to surround Mickey (played by the now late Wayne Allwine) who gets "Mouse-Knapped", and Minnie Mouse (Russi Taylor) hires Basil of Baker Street (from the 1986 animated film The Great Mouse Detective) to help find him.
Now Minnie, Basil, Donald Duck (Tony Anselmo), and Goofy (Bill Farmer) have to travel the globe to find Mickey and in a Who Framed Roger Rabbit manner, single-handedly encounter one character from every Disney Animated Movie to exist at the time. Several of those characters would include Alice (Kathryn Beaumont) from Alice in Wonderland, Aladdin (Scott Weinger), and Peter Pan (Blayne Weaver).
That same year of 2002, no new information on the film had been revealed, except for the fact that there was speculation that the film would be done in CGI, featuring a CGI Mickey that had been used in test footage for an upcoming direct-to-DVD project that was slated to be released in 2004, and was speculated to be The Search for Mickey Mouse, by having the same characters and voice actors as mentioned before. However many were proved wrong as instead it was used for a CGI film called Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas and for the Walt Disney World Attraction, Mickey's Philarmagic.
Many believed the project to be cancelled until one day in 2005, when WDW Radio (a podcast website) reported that the film would be released in 2012 and would be Walt Disney Animation Studio's 50th Animated Feature, bringing new hope back into the project. However, Tangled became the studio's 50th Animated Feature in 2010.
Now it is currently unknown if the project will ever continue production as new information on the film is still unknown. There is also no footage or any screenshots of the film at all.
New information has surfaced that in 2002 it was officially cancelled by Walt Disney Studios and The Three Mouseketeers was produced instead.
