Gavin Mercado and Annabelle Lona

Everyone’s favorite mouse has turned 90 on Monday, November 5th. At Disneyland and other Disney parks around the world, it was quite a palooza!

At Walt Disney World, a whole new dance party was created for the mouse himself. Strolling through Main Street, a huge float soars through the streets and above guests. When the float stops, the celebration becomes less of a parade and more of an incredible dance party.

At Disneyland, wait times to meet Mickey Mouse in his house, soared up to hours. Some Disney fans celebrated at home in their living rooms with Mickey’s 90th Spectacular. ABC says this, ¨Mickey’s 90th Spectacular,” a dazzling two-hour primetime event celebrating 90 years of Mickey Mouse, aired Sunday, November 4 8|7c on ABC. From the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, the elegant affair will feature star-studded musical performances, moving tributes and never-before-seen short films. Superstars from music, film, and television will join the festivities to celebrate the birthday of the internationally beloved character on Mickey’s 90th Spectacular

If viewers missed the episode, they can still watch the extreme celebration on the ABC app.

Mickey was initially created as a replacement for Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, who was an earlier cartoon character for the Disney Studio and originally belonged to Charles Mintz. During the time Mickey was being put together, it was decided he would have 4 fingers on each hand. His ears were drawn to look circular no matter what direction he was facing.

Avalyn Walton, Ashley Wolf, and Gwyndalynn Kent

A couple of weeks ago on the Cougar Chronicle, readers were able to experience superhero’s in a whole new way with our article, “Superhero Profiles”. The light, or goodness, in the Marvel and DC comics and movies, were delved into and explained with ease.

Mean Girls: The Musical Reply

Mean Girls, the movie starring Lindsay Lohan as the main character of Cady Heron, is no doubt a widespread and popular movie. From games to T-shirts, the movie has been spread across so many different mediums, it is almost impossible to not at least know of the movie. So it only makes sense to bring the story from the big screen to Broadway.

The musical comes from the same creator as the movie, Tina Fey. Of course, she wasn’t alone in the creation. She had help with music from Jeff Richmond and lyrics from Nell Benjamin.

Since sometime around 2013, a musical adaptation of the iconic movie has been worked on and developed into an amazing show. Rumors of the show have been spiraling since October of 2016, but nothing was sure at that point. That is, until the National Theatre confirmed the D.C venue on December 30, 2016. More…
