VIDEO: Mickey Mouse in Mumbai Madness

I have thought for some years that it was only a matter of time before Disney would gain a larger foothold in India.  Finally, we can now watch the iconic Mickey Mouse himself speak in Hindi and travel around India – facing unmistakably Indian features in the new Disney India shorts such as the one above that pay homage to both Disney’s history and India’s culture.

The Indian cartoon production market is still in its nascent stage, but I would expect this to change very soon considering that the Indian youth population is burgeoning and the amount of rich material in India’s history and culture that could be depicted.  There is right now a great deal of opportunity for Disney, Pixar, and other animation companies to create profitable cartoon series and movies for Indian kids.  That just might become popular among kids around the world too.
