Disney has revealed some new content debut dates for Disney Channel and Disney Junior in the fall and winter. Two unique Mickey Mouse holiday flicks, one for Halloween and the other for the Christmas Holiday season, were among the exciting projects disclosed.
Disney Branded Television unveiled its fall and winter 2021 holiday schedule during the Television Critics Association’s summer press event where two new Mickey Mouse films were announced.
On October 7, 2021, Disney Television Animation will release Mickey’s Tale of Two Witches, a not-so-spooky Halloween film, and on December 2, 2021, Disney Television Animation will release Mickey and Minnie Wish Upon a Christmas, a holiday-themed film.
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.
Unfortunately, the absence of Disney+ is a little underwhelming, however, it is assumed that these two new holiday films will be released on the streaming platform shortly after their respective release dates on Disney Junior.
