Tokyo Disneyland’s Halloween is Very Venetian Indeed

Posted by Michael Pinto on Sep 7, 2009 in Animation, Japanese TV |

I was trying to figure out why this recent commercial for Tokyo Disneyland Disney Halloween looks so damn cool. I’m an anime fanboy so my thought was that anything with a Japanese voiceover would just seem cooler, but that’s not the case. Then it struck me: Mickey and Mini and decked out in Venetian costumes instead of the typical goth look associated with Halloween. The result is that our mouse suddenly takes on a magical European quality that I just doesn’t associate with Mickey who’s as American as you can get.

The other odd thing about the Venetian masks is that they’re worn for the Carnival of Venice which takes place in February! Although it turns out the misplaced date is fine as “Disney’s Halloween” runs from September 10 through November 3, 2009.
