Katy Perry to present Minnie Mouse Star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame

Hollywood icon, Minne Mouse is getting a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Minnie's star will be in front of the El Capitan Theatre, and just in time to celebrate her 90th anniversary in entertainment this year.

The ceremony will take place January 22 on Hollywood Boulevard.

Pop superstar, American Idol judge, and Disney fan Katy Perry will be one of the guest speakers presenting Minnie with her well-deserved star in the category of Motion Pictures. Disney Chairman and CEO, Bob Iger will also be presenting.  

“Minnie Mouse is a woman of the ages and her iconic status makes her a great addition to our Walk of Fame!," said producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies Ana Martinez. "Generations of fans of all ages have been looking forward to her seeing her bright new star.”

Minnie will be making her mark as the 2,627th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, joining fellow Disney favorites including Donald Duck, Tinker Bell, Winnie the Pooh, Snow White, Kermit the Frog, and—of course—the one and only Mickey Mouse.

Ever since her debut in “Steamboat Willie,” Minnie has starred in over 70 films and become Disney’s darling recognized around the world. Her timeless fashion (as showcased in @MinnieStyle) has not only served as fashion inspiration for our own wardrobes but for designers’ collections as well—a classic Minnie polka dot look that is unmistakable in magazines and runway shows. And Minnie uses her fame for a good cause—the #ShareYourEars campaign in 2016 and 2017 earned $4 million in donations benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
