LEGO Ideas Disney 21317 Steamboat Willie stop motion animation collection

The LEGO YouTube channel has gathered some of the finest stop motion animated clips using LEGO Ideas 21317 Steamboat Willie, and combined them in one compilation clip.

LEGO Ideas 21317 Steamboat Willie took the iconic piece of Disney animation as inspiration and released a set based on the first adventure of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. The set includes exclusive editions of the Mickey and Minnie Mouse minifigures. It seems only right that talented stop motion animation enthusiasts have paid homage to both the set and the 1928 short, with a selection of these brickfilms shared as a compilation on the LEGO Group’s YouTube channel.
