Ah yes, The Mickey Mouse Club. It was a variety show created by Walt Disney that featured talented children. Later a reboot came out in the ’90s that had some Mouseketeers that you might recognize like Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Ryan Gosling. Now it’s getting another revival, but this time it will be as a new digital program called Club Mickey Mouse.

Disney has released a video spotlighting eight new cast members with different talents including a rap artist, dancer, and country crooner. Check it out below!
