There are few companies in the world as protective of their intellectual property as Disney, and anyone who repurposes their material without consent is bound to get a swift call from their lawyers. And heck, even material that Disney themselves produced in the past that may have be seen as racially, culturally and socially distasteful today remains locked away in a vault (the most famous example being "Song Of The South," a massive hit at the time for the studio that still remains without a home video edition). So it's hardly any surprise that this unofficial anti-war short raised some eyebrows.

Hey, here's an idea Disney hasn't really tried in a while -- trotting out a character from their archives for something new. As they've been acquiring properties left and right, rebooting fairy tales, sequel-izing Pixar movies and more, it's easy to forget this is same place that birthed the beloved Mickey Mouse. Now a worldwide icon, it's not surprising that Disney would go back to the well, we're just surprised it took this long. But, it looks like they've got a blitzkrieg of Mickey on the way.
