Just in time to celebrate her 90th anniversary in entertainment this year, Minnie Mouse will receive her very own gold star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Minnie will receive the star in the category of Motion Pictures and you’ll be able to find it right in front of the historic El Capitan Theatre.
Pop superstar, American Idol judge, Katy Perry will be one of the guest speakers presenting Minnie with her star along with Bob Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company. The momentous occasion will take place on Monday, January 22 at 11:30 a.m. PST. You can tune into the event on the official Hollywood Walk of Fame website.
“Minnie Mouse is a woman of the 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,” said producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies Ana Martinez.
Minnie Mouse will be making her mark as the 2,627th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. What other Disney icons have received a Hollywood Walk of Fame? Minnie will join fellow pals including Donald Duck, Tinker Bell, Winnie the Pooh, Snow White, Kermit the Frog, and Mickey Mouse.
According to Disney, since her debut in “Steamboat Willie,” Minnie has starred in over 70 films and become Disney’s darling recognized around the world. Her timeless fashion (as showcased in @MinnieStyle) has not only served as fashion inspiration for our own wardrobes but for designers’ collections as well—a classic Minnie polka dot look that is unmistakable in magazines and runway shows. And Minnie uses her fame for a good cause—the #ShareYourEars campaign in 2016 and 2017 earned $4 million in donations benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
