Here is the official description of Mickey: The Story of a Mouse:

One of the world’s most beloved icons, Mickey Mouse is recognized as a symbol of joy and childhood innocence in virtually every corner of the globe. Conceived at a low point in Walt Disney’s budding career, Mickey became an overnight sensation when he starred in the first animated short with synchronized sound, Steamboat Willie. Over the decades that followed, the character evolved into strikingly different versions of himself, reflecting both his creator’s remarkable career and dramatic societal changes in the nation he came to represent. In the fascinating documentary, Mickey: The Story of a Mousedirector Jeff Malmberg and Oscar-winning producer Morgan Neville (who previously collaborated on Don’t you want to be my neighbor?) examine the cultural significance of the nearly 100-year-old cartoon mouse.

Besides Mickey: The Story of a Mouse trailer, Disney and Falco ink. shared key art for the upcoming documentary. The colorful image has Mickey Mouse divided into two halves. The left side represents his iconic intro from countless Disney shorts, while the right features different stages of the character’s development.

Mouseketeers will actually cry when the documentary hits Disney+ later this month and be reminded of the magic Mickey is able to cast upon the weary world.
