Malaysia now has Mouseketeers! The seven young and talented Malaysians were chosen after an extensive nationwide search.
Leading the group is 26-year-old Head Mouseketeer Charis from Kuala Lumpur, well-known to Malaysians as a popular YouTube lifestyle personality.
The other Mouseketeers are:
- Faiz, 15, from Johor Baru and Natasya, 14, from Selangor – both are winners of the “Club Mickey Mouse Star Search” which was conducted over six weeks across the country;
- Dheena, 13, from Negri Sembilan;
- Erissa, 14, from Kuala Lumpur;
- Wafiy, 15, from Sabah; and
- Gabriel, 16, from Selangor.
They will host the multi- platform Disney Channel show Club Mickey Mouse, which premieres on Friday, Sept 15, 2017, at 1.30pm on Disney Channel (Astro, channel 615) or on Disney XD (Astro, channel 617) and Disney Junior (Astro, channel 613) at the same time.
Created by Walt Disney in 1955, the original Mickey Mouse Club is being refreshed in the United States as a digital-first programme called Club Mickey Mouse. In Malaysia, the franchise has been localised and refreshed into a contemporary and uniquely Malaysian show which will entertain kids and families through music, comedy, games and celebrity guest appearances. These include actress Nur Fazura, actor and singer Fattah Amin, and hip-hop rapper Joe Flizzow.
