Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers
The Three Musketeers are widely known to fight for justice, win freedom for captives, and protect their king at all costs. In this musical comedy, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy are the threesome charged with the great task. Growing up poor and making a living as janitors, each of the three dreams of being a musketeer one day. When the musketeer job is there for Mickey, Donald and Goofy, there’s a catch; it’s a conspiracy of Captain Peg-leg Pete who wants to get rid of the princess, Minnie Mouse, in order to take over the throne. He teams up the oblivious threesome to protect the princess, thinking that they are incapable of thwarting his plans. To his chagrin, Mickey, Donald and Goofy rise to the challenge and give him an unexpected battle. Kids and parents will find themselves buckling over in laughter and left in suspense as the unlikely musketeers try to save Princess Minnie.
Mickey, Donald and Goofy are simple-minded, timid, mistake-prone and ill-equipped for the task they are given. They want to give up, but instead they get up, try again and find out that they can accomplish great things working together. It’s about teamwork and friendship. As with most animations, there is a bit of violence — mostly hitting and fighting and scenes of danger. Even though the violence is mild, comical, childlike and minimal, some parents may be concerned about the message of that content being misunderstood by young children. The film’s G rating is appropriate, and it can be viewed by children of all ages.
