Starting with a small cartoon studio in 1923, Walt Disney’s dream has grown into a rich, century-long legacy of the world’s most inspiring stories, places, and fans. A momentous milestone deserves an equally incredible icon, so D23 has partnered with artist James Fauntleroy and Gentle Giant Studios to create the Mickey Mouse “Leader of the Club” Milestone Statue to pay tribute to The Walt Disney Company’s rich legacy of unmatched creativity—and inspire the next century of storytellers.
Designed as a reflection of Disney’s past, present, and future, artist and Grammy®-winning music producer James Fauntleroy brought a “platinum pop star” tribute to Walt’s loveable mouse with a stylish varsity jacket featuring the 100 Years logo and flair paying tribute to Mickey’s own fandom for some of Disney’s most incredible stories. An oversized version of the Mickey statue was unveiled at D23 Expo, the celebration’s kick off, and now D23 Gold Members have the opportunity to bring home the magic with this exquisitely crafted 10-inch statue.
