    I found it on you tube and thought it was interesting, I have no proof other than my imagination that they are planning on changing it.

    But it was interesting to see the reaction if they planned on changing Mickey. I doubt they will ever change the 'shape' of Mickey because after all he is a world reknown corporate logo. That would be bad business sense.

    But Mickey has gone through various changes in his long life time. Black and White, then color, then some how his pupils shrank so you could see the whites of his eyes, at one point you could see the inside of his ears. Yet everytime you see them, it's still Mickey.

    I liked the guy's portrayal.. it was new and innovating. More over, I think he could have made his 'own' character, that I would equally or if not more. I give him props because he's got imagination. When I hear people say "Mickey can't look like that." It reminds me of the story of Walt's teachers telling him "Flowers can't have faces".

    So anyone up for "Alien Mickey"?

    We don't really think this would replace the current Mickey, do we? I mean, that isn't even a possibilty.

    I found this Neo Mickey a little too much like Mr. Fantastic, I mean did you see his arm go reaching out to the sky? This isn't the Mickey Mouse we need today!

    I admit I like Neo-Mickey (except the stretchy arm part, that was just weird...) he's so adorable!
    But I doubt this would be the "New Mickey", because Disney would not change their main Mickey quite that drastically.
    Although it would be the perfect offshot brand...

    There's no way they would change Mickey that much. It would just be blasphemous to Walt.

    Agreed. And wouldn't it also make another problem? That problem is that Disney can not only change Mickey but they'll also need to change Minnie & the rest of the gang so they can fit in good.

    Nope, and thats why I think we'll never see these Neo characters.

    That's true, but that's not the reason they wouldn't do this. Disney is the "brand recognition" capital of the world right now, and Mickey is the brand. They would never abandon such a recognizable brand symbol. The company just doesn't take those kind of risks anymore
