    How could Mickey be live action? He's a mouse.
    Well, I think it would be along the lines of Mickey would be animated and the world would be live action. That said, it's nothing I think they should be doing. I wouldn't mind an actual feature-length animated movie starring Mickey and the gang though.

    I have to agree, that sounds terrible!

    I'm curious as to why we haven't gotten a Mickey Mouse movie in general in such a long time.
    There actually has never been a Mickey Mouse movie, a feature-length one anyway. It's kind of an oversight. Heck, he's getting his first true Disney Parks ride this year!

    I wonder if there's a true "need" to create a full-length movie. Between the children's shows and the newly imagined shorts, would a movie water down the character? Even the new ride sounds like it's themed to the shorts. They'd have to come up with a truly solid and compelling story to risk the film.

    True enough. Mickey does seem to lend himself to shorts. Then again, if the right story came along, I don't see why they couldn't do it. It'd definitely have to be more than just Mickey though - it needs to include Donald, Goofy, etc. for sure.

    Wonder if they'd do a live-action hybrid a la "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" or "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle".

    I think I could be into that, but only if Mickey were paired in real life with Walt, even if played by Tom Hanks. I'd call it "Partners."
