As a mom of two young kids, I have to admit that new Disney Junior shows are my thing. We have 130+ episodes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on our DVR. Get the picture here? New shows add great variety to my life!
As part of my trip to San Francisco for the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story press event, I had the opportunity to learn more about a new Disney Junior show coming — Mickey and the Roadster Racers!
Love New Disney Junior Shows? Check out Mickey and the Roadster Racers!
The announcement of new Disney Junior shows is a cause for celebration in my house! From the moment my kids see a commercial for any of the Disney Junior new shows, the countdown is on!
I had the opportunity to screen the premiere episode of Mickey and the Roadster Racers followed by a Q&A with Producers Rob LaDuca and Mark Seidenberg. They’re the minds behind Mickey Mouse Clubhouse so that was a little bit exciting for me honestly.
When I start to list Disney Junior shows that we love, it seems that these guys are the ones behind the magic for my family!
The Minds Behind Disney Junior New Shows
Rob LaDuca and Mark Seidenberg work together as executive producers on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and when they wanted to develop a new Disney Junior show, they decided to look at which episodes of the show were the most popular.
There’s an episode of the show called Road Rally (I’ve seen it more than a few times) and that is the episode that proved to be the most popular, which actually surprised the two men. But they were excited.
As an extension of that episode, Mickey and the Roadster Racers was born!
It’s given them a chance to age up the characters a bit from the versions that live in the clubhouse. The focus is not as much on the education of Clubhouse episodes, but on some themes and issues kids face as they start to get older.
So what are some of the themes that will be featured in Mickey and the Roadster Racers?
- Handling temper
- Adapting to new situations
- Never give up!
These are lessons I know my kids can use as much exposure to as possible! I love that these Disney Junior new shows are helping me teach these important themes in a fun way for my kids! They’re all about helping them handle those “kid problems” we’ve all faced!
