Hey All!

How many of you have a Dance Star Mickey? Well hold onto your seats because during the D23 Expo Disney introduced the brand new Rock Star Mickey! And Constantine Maroulis, star of Rock of Ages and former finalist on American Idol, was there to help celebrate the moment! It was fun to see as he joined the mouse on stage showing kids how to rock and roll. The two have also teamed up for the Rock Star Mickey TV commercial, which is set to air Sept. 6.

The rocker jammed on stage with Mickey Mouse to show kids and Disney fans classic rock star moves featured in the interactive plush including Rock Star Mickey’s signature move, the Mickety-Split. With strong pre-sales currently underway, Rock Star Mickey is expected to be a fan favorite this holiday season.

“It was awesome to get to rock out with such a beloved, global icon. I know what it takes to get people up on their feet, and Rock Star Mickey really has all the right moves,” said Constantine. “As a new dad and a musician who loves to rock, I think it’s important to help kids appreciate the magic of music and its impact on their lives. It’s great to see how Rock Star Mickey can get kids rockin’ an early age.”

Rock Star Mickey will retail for $54.99 and will be available on Sept. 6 at retailers nationwide. For additional information, log onto www.RockStarMickey.com. Inspired by Rock Star Mickey, fans can download Constantine’s version of the classic rock song that is also featured in the plush, “You Really Got Me,” now available for purchase on iTunes.
