The talking Mickey we wrote about in May of this year will begin making regular appearances at Disney’s California Adventure park as part of a new show. This is the first time that the “enhanced” Mickey character, which has a moving mouth and blinking eyes, will routinely appear in front of visitors at Disneyland Resort as he plays a central role in “Disney Dance Crew” that debuts Friday at California Adventure.
In May, Disney Imagineers tested out the talking Mickey, who greeted guests by name and had conversations with them, during meet-and-greet sessions. Read a previous story about the talking Mickey Mouse. Talking Mickey also appeared at the private premiere ceremony of “World of Color” in June.
While the new Mickey is not expected to greet guests at California Adventure, the character is slated to dance and talk during the show. Fans got a sneak peek of the show, including the talking Mickey, during last month’s Destination D convention by D23, the official Disney fan club.
The talking Mickey already performs at Walt Disney World in the “Dream Along with Mickey” show.
