2017 seems so far away, but the announcement of Disney Junior’s MICKEY AND THE ROADSTER RACERS makes me hold some hope that my girls will into it when it arrives – a new series aimed at kids 2-7. Featuring stories told using a combination of CG animation and live action footage, MICKEY AND THE ROADSTER RACERS is “designed to impart social and emotional lessons about friendship, teamwork and good sportsmanship.” If this show existed today? My Mickey-loving, car-loving kids (and the Mickey-loving little one in me) would be all over this. The high-octane announcement arrived today, along with some early test footage (viewable below) and full details on what looks light a fantastic replacement for the aging MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE

 

From the Official Announcement:

Production is revving up on the animated series “Mickey and the Roadster Racers,” a madcap car-racing adventure for preschoolers featuring Disney’s #1 star, Mickey Mouse, and his pals Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, Daisy and Donald.
