No matter what Mickey,Donald and Goofy do their friendship is never broken and they stick together in attempts to stop Pete in becoming king of France and its never too late to see this movie. As the Beagle Boys have been beaten, Donald reconciles with the group and declares victory. They gave it a thumbs up, and during one pay period, when I had some excess cash to spend, I splurged on a used copy. Pete is happy to become the King and the Opera begins. But at just over an hour, The Three Musketeers barely qualifies by length, and without a regular theatrical engagement or too much fanfare, this direct-to-video release hardly seems like a landmark release for these famous personas.
The Beagle Boys run to tell their boss, revealed to be Captain Pete, that they were not successful in dropping the safe on Minnie. After reconciling with each other, they set off to rescue Minnie and Daisy. As Clarabelle tries to change her ambitions to evil, she changes her behaviour and reveals Pete's true intentions and that Mickey is in danger. Panicking, Troubadour quickly picks up storybook and begins reading. Be glad that the song wasn't actually used in the movie. The film's classical score and operatic songs are both really nicely conveyed, and the dialogue is crisp and natural sounding.
While battling the Beagle Boys, Donald retreats, but Mickey and Goofy manage to save Minnie and Daisy where the Beagle Boys are keeping them and are able to fight them off, thanks to Goofy's quick thinking. Consequently, Troubadour is ushered to tell the audience the story at the last minute. But being the shrewd captain he is, Pete hires for the job the same three janitors he laughed off. The original Musketeers, incidentally, are the ones who saved the gang in the beginning of the film, and their autographs are in the hat they give Mickey. While on night duty, Goofy is lured away from the palace by Clarabelle, who uses a shadow puppet of Mickey, using her hands which makes Goofy follow the shadow after hearing about peanut butter. At that moment, Donald escapes at the last second, causing Pete to lose his peg leg as he dove under the guillotine's blade to try to prevent his escape. I liked what I saw, but it felt a little forced in the humor department.
The back side provides a phone number and website address for you to provide feedback on these new viewing modes. The 16x9 menus start with a little animated tour of the castle, and provide some witty commentary at each transition from the characters. But the humor here is a little more sarcastic and tongue-in-cheek; these efforts to keep the protagonists relevant for the post-modern generation serve the film adequately. After you make your picks, you are treated to your creation. Guards captain Peg-leg, who dreams of usurping the throne, cruelly laughs them away as butterfingers midgets of no use. But then, amidst the footage of storyboard pitches and animators at work, the filmmakers treat Mickey, Donald, and Goofy as actors. Like The Wizard of Oz, each of the trio is lacking something.
Maybe I'm just naive, because I don't watch much current children's programming. Parisian screw-up urchins Mickey, Donald, and Goofy can barely keep out of trouble for a day, but since gallant musketeer saved Mickey and gave him his plumed hat as a token they may one day join the glorious French royal elite regiment, they dream of enlisting. The royal soundtrack really exhibits some nice modern sound design. But this movie proved to be a great and entertaining watch for someone in their teenage years, and to younger siblings as well. The first section is Deleted Scenes. Pluto finds out that Goofy and Donald are missing and bumps into Mickey to warn him.
Backstage Disney, the section that will probably appeal to the widest audience those interested in making-of bonus features is oddly saved for last. There are nice spritely, colorful illustrations which make up the comic book opening introduction and closing credits and, of course, the cast is composed of characters who were the biggest stars of the format when 2-D animation first found an audience. I've watched the whole movie by myself and the movie isn't that bad but the first 20 minutes are so slow and confusing. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Mickey's dog Pluto are , who, while being robbed by masked bandits played by the are saved by the Royal Musketeers, , , and. Like the Timeless River world in , it is featured as a period of Mickey Mouse's past. This one will likely only entertain youngsters and the easily amused. The shadow then vanishes in which Goofy is cornered, subdued and kidnapped by Clarebelle.
Like any good villain, Pete has henchmen the Beagle Boys to do the dirty work for him. The French troubadour turtle returns from time-to-time to narrate the film, which he does by setting lyrics to famous classical instrumentals. The other feature, EasyFind, would seem to have even less of a point. Sixty-plus years later, the problem was solved by having Mickey, Donald and Goofy not play the original Three Musketeers and thus tell a story that parallels the original, but is not strictly an adaptation of it. Mickey, Donald, and Goofy are three inept janitors who dream of being musketeers one day.
As the title suggests, it features , , and as the three musketeers. Unfortunately, they are very clumsy and constantly cause messes. But when Minnie was in a time of need when the henchmen kidnap her Donald hides only leaving Goofy and Mickey behind. Pete, of course, is the villain of the piece, and he retains the pegleg that he had in some of the oldest Disney shorts. Pluto uses his nose to smell where Minnie and Daisy are. He then plans to get rid of them one by one. After meeting each other and attacking Daisy by mistake, Minnie falls in love with Mickey and feels safe at the hands of his bravery.
Colors are rich, vibrant, and always properly contained. There are some in-jokes and gags which may hold more meaning for those who are well-versed in this trio, but the film is also entirely accessible for young audiences today who perish the thought may not know these three from many other features or short films. Unlike many modern comedies, it manages both laughs and a well-defined plot. For a brand new film, it's not surprising that the picture quality is this good, but it is still pleasing. The film does, however, share its setting: seventeenth century France. However, the project suffered script problems with the multiple cameos being thought to be too gimmicky. You can't mention a chicken in our house without someone busting into a Donald Duck voice and quoting lines from the movie and then they all have a giggle fit.
But it wasn't sterling, and, like I say, Disney was just getting its sea legs under it as they took a more classic Waner Brother's approach to witty cartoon story telling. Minnie then takes a walk in the palace garden and barely survives an attempt on her life as the Beagle Boys attempt to drop a safe on her. This a good tale on how Mickey's,Donald's and Goofy's dream come true as they go on wacky adventures and do hilarious stuff that can get them into trouble. Like the original album, Intrada's release includes all the songs from the movie, though in this release, most of them are put together with the respective pieces of Bruce Broughton's background music that leads up to them. This simply allows you to individually access the seven scenes from the film that have songs, with colorful subtitles that allow you to sing along. Basic multiplication tells you that your creation will be one of 9 possible operas, and as there's only one song for each performer, only the costumes and sets change for six of these nine.
