Since I was a little girl, my favourite Disney character has always been Minnie Mouse and after 90 years in the business, she’s FINALLY getting the recognition she deserves … a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and she’s being honoured by the one and only, Katy Perry.

 

 

Minnie was introduced 90 years ago and still remains to be one of the biggest known Disney cartoon characters in the world.  Mikey, which is Minnie’s love interest, received his star on the Walk of Fame back in 1978 when he celebrated his 50th anniversary and now, it’s Minnie’s turn.  Other Disney cartoon characters who have a spot already on the Walk of Fame: Winnie the Pooh, Snow White, Tinker Bell, Kermit the Frog and Donald Duck.

 

 

Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies says, “Minnie Mouse is a woman of all ages and her iconic status makes her a great addition to our Walk of Fame.  Generations of fans of all ages have been looking forward to her seeing her bright new star.”

And with Minnie by her side on stage will be Disney fanatic, Katy Perry who tweeted, “After 90 years of serving looks & smiles as the polka dot queen, it’s time she got that recognition.  It will be a childhood and grown adult dream come true for me that day.”

Minnie Mouse will receive her star on January 22 at 11:30AM (PST) right in front of Disney’s El Capitan Theatre (side note: this will be the Walk of Fame’s 2,627th star).

 

 

According to the official Hollywood Walk of Fame website, it states, “A renowned veteran with more than 70 films, Minnie Mouse is one of Hollywood’s most prolific stars. Since the late 1920s, she’s had starring roles and has performed in a number of period pieces, costume dramas, and TV shows.  Minnie is also a long-standing fashion icon. She has served as a muse for designers, inspiring new fashion collections, and has appeared in magazines and runway shows in New York, Tokyo, and Paris. Her classic polka dot look has been reimagined by the fashion industry through the decades and continues to drive current trends. From her early pill-box flower hat, which has inspired ladies’ hat trends, to her famous bow and ears, Minnie has been looked to for style inspiration since her inception.  In addition to the glitz and glamour, Minnie is civic-minded and has used her talent and celebrity to support causes that affect countless communities in positive ways. In 2016 and 2017, Minnie was well represented by Disney fans and social media users who participated in #ShareYourEars campaigns that resulted in $4-million in donations benefitting Make-A-Wish.”  To read the full story, click here:
