Here at Collider, we cover a lot of stuff, be it Star Wars, superheroes, or cinephile fare, and everything from movies and TV, to video games and web series. There’s something for everyone. But there’s so much stuff out there that sometimes our younger audience members get left out. So every once in a while, we’d like to shine a spotlight on some family-friendly content that parents and caregivers can confidently watch with the little ones.
In today’s Collider Kids segment, we’re celebrating Minnie Mouse! On “National Polka Dot Day” January 22nd at 11:30am PST, superstar Katy Perry will be presenting Minnie with her well-deserved star in the category of Motion Pictures, alongside Bob Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company, and other guests. You can tune in to watch the event exclusively on the official Hollywood Walk of Fame website. This event celebrates Minnie’s 90th anniversary and appearances in over 70 films, and her star will be the 2,627th on the famous walk.
Here’s how Perry shared the news:
After 90 years of serving LKS & smiles as the polka dot queen, it’s time she got that recognition ! It will be a childhood and grown adult dream come true for me that day! ❤ https://t.co/rw6aYWYfNB
