A poor young girl has a burning desire to find comfort and happiness in her life. Desperate to keep warm, the girl lights the matches she sells, and envisions a very different life for herself in the fiery flames.
When the producers were going through all the archive recordings of Walt Disney, they discovered he never said the word "red" while voice acting as Mickey. This proved to be a problem, as there was going to be a moment when he would comment on the color of his shorts upon entering the 3D world. To solve this, the sound editors "created" the word red by splicing together three different sounds, an "r" sound, an "eh" sound, and a soft "d" sound, each taken from a different line, thus, creating the word "red" as said by Mickey. If you listen very closely when Mickey says the line, you can hear a slight jarring from the lines being spliced together when he says "red". See more »
The Disney logo at the end is in black and white, with "Disney" written in an older script font and the arc above the castle is replaced by Clarabelle Cow jumping over it leaving behind a sparkly trail. See more »
As a huge fan of classic Disney and as someone who likes a lot of their modern stuff(though there have been a fair share of misfires), Get a Horse was really delightful and while Frozen is a great film and one of their best since the Renaissance this short that preceded it was even better. The animation mixes black and white classic animation and colour CGI, with the crisp and fluid black and white and the colourful and vibrant CGI that moves more naturally than that on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse it not only looks great but it is very cleverly used as well. The soundtrack is lively and with beautiful orchestration and themes that you'll recognise immediately. The sound effects are well-incorporated, some from the very early stuff that are preserved quite well, and are not misplaced or bizarre-sounding. Get a Horse has humorous dialogue and a story that is from start-to-finish boundless fun and energy and it's as clever as the animation too. Just as good are the gags, they're reminiscent of classic Disney but there is also a very modern Disney vibe, so it will appeal to anybody, child and adult, regardless of where abouts they were born. All the characters engage, with a delicious villain in Pete and Mickey who has the kindly quality he has now and also the heroic character in the old classic Disney. Minnie is sweet as well, and it was great to see Horace and Clarabelle, two characters often neglected(or they were for a long time before House of Mouse came on the scene). The voices are fine too, though it was initially a tad odd hearing (modern) Pete voiced by someone other than Jim Cummings, like the sound the original voices are well-preserved. All in all, delightful and recommended without any hint of hesitation. 10/10 Bethany Cox
