Leg Pete, captain of the Musketeers, and his sinister lieutenant Clarabelle use them in a dastardly
plot to rid the kingdom of Princess Minnie – the only mouse standing in Pete’s way of the throne.

The Many Hats of Mickey sound cool, though it's too bad they didn't include older films such as Steamboat Willie. Glad to see there's gonna be DTS. Sad there's no making-of. O well, can't win everytime.....

Thanks Luke!

The film itself looks great, and bonus features are...well...a bonus!

It IS a shame, though, that none of these features are substantial 'making ofs'. I would really like to hear a proper commentary on this (the Lady & the Tramp 2 commentary was just great).

But to summarize:
I can't wait to own Mickey • Donald • Goofy
THE THREE MUSKETEERS
Everybody like Mickey!
Me want to own when it come out!

I'll be buying it. Bonus features look pretty good. Pics you posted are great, Luke. I just wish that it was a little longer than 68 minutes. A feature, especially with so much material as there is for a 3 Musketeers movie, should get at least a 90 minute feature length or longer. 68 minutes is just too short for this story.

:D YAY! A Mickey-Donald-Goofy musical full-length feature! I'm so excited! I was going to post about if there was a Three Musketeers Press Release. Thanks, Luke!!!

The sad, but also good thing is that we'll be on vacation (bet you can't guess where! :lol: ) when the DVD release. True we could buy the DVD down in wonderful WDW, but...
1) WDW is most likely be where it will be the MOST expensive
2) Unless we bring a DVD player, we can't watch it right away. :(

But still, its WDW! I'm so excited that both are happening at the same time! YAY! HAPPY DAY! :D :mickeyface: :donald: :goofy: :D

Yeah, but then you'd be able to say you were in WDW when Mickey's full-length feature debuted in stores. It would make a nice souvenir, too. But yeah, it might be a little pricey, but if you check at Virgin (in Downtown Disney), they occasionally have good prices. Also, Orlando and Kissimmee are just a couple minutes down the road- and there's even the crossroads area right outside of WDW that might have a place to buy it.

Maybe WDW will even do something special, like characters walking around, or even a pre-parade?

Good review, Luke, even if what it has to say is a little disappointing (to me, at least). My plans are still to rent it. From the sound of things, though, if I purchase it, it won't be for awhile. But ya never know, I might fall in love with it.

It's not amazing but it is certainly not bad either. It makes a nice little movie and keep in mind that if you purchase it it'll show Disney that people are interested in hand-drawn movies featuring decades-old characters.

I still think this would have been great as a theatrical release. But, I don't know if I could wait that long for it to be released. I would love to get this the day it comes out. But I'm a college student. *turns out pockets to show no money* So I may have to wait a few weeks. But I WILL be seeing this unless something stops me.
