After an extensive nationwide search, seven young talented Malaysians have been chosen to be the country’s first group of Mouseketeers. They will be the hosts of the multi-platform Disney Channel show Club Mickey Mouse for Southeast Asia. Created by Walt Disney, the iconic variety show for children first started in 1955 in America. Having over the decades established the careers of former Mouseketeers like Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Ryan Gosling, the original Mickey Mouse Club was refreshed in the US as a digital-first programme called Club Mickey Mouse. And now, it has been localised and refreshed in Malaysia, turning into a contemporary and unique Malaysian show which will entertain kids and families through music, comedy, games and celebrity guest appearances. Actresses Sharifah Amani and Nur Fazura, actor and singer Fattah Amin, and rapper Joe Flizzow are the celebrities that have been confirmed.
