Minnie Mouse is about to make Disney History. The famous mouse will join Mickey and receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Southern California. The sidewalk star will be unveiled on Monday, January 22, recognizing the iconic status of the world-famous mouse who made her film debut in “Steamboat Willy” in 1928.
Before she leaves, Minnie will be celebrated with a special send-off from Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. The send-off celebration will take place this Sunday, January 21, at 1 p.m. ET.
The 20-minute live stream of the send-off will begin at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday. A new post will appear here on THBOE as the live-stream begins.
Coverage of the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony will appear on Disney Parks Blog on Monday, January 22. The event will include special guest speakers Bob Iger, CEO & Chairman of The Walt Disney Company, and Katy Perry, the global pop icon, and judge of ABC’s American Idol.
