Have you heard the word on the street? (Buena Vista Street, that is!) Following weeks of internet rumors, Disney finally made it official today. Oswald, The Lucky Rabbit will soon begin greeting guests at Disney California Adventure.
Walt Disney created Oswald in 1927 while working for Universal, making him a year older than Mickey Mouse, but he never owned the rights to his own creation. In 2006, the Walt Disney Corporation acquired the rights to the Oswald character from Universal, trading him for sportscaster Al Michaels.
Oswald will be making his stateside theme park debut on September 14th at California Adventure. He previously debuted in Japan at Tokyo DisneySea in April of this year.
