Willie the Giant

Willie the Giant

Willie the Giant can be found in the 1947 Walt Disney animated film 'Fun and Fancy Free.' He can also be found in the films 'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse,' 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit,' and 'Mickey's Christmas Carol.' In television shows he can be found in 'House of Mouse,' 'Once Upon a Time,' 'Sing Me a Story with Belle,' the Walt Disney anthology series, and 'Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.' He can be found in the video games Mickey Mania and the Kingdom Hearts series. In merchandise he can be seen in toys, books, clothing, pins, and Disney art.

He has a palace he lives in which is in the clouds above the village of Happy Valley. He is the typical bad guy turned good. I wouldn't even say he was a bad guy, but rather was just confused. His friends include Donald, Goofy, Mickey, Daisy, Minnie, Chip, Pluto, Dale and the rest of the good Disney characters. His enemies include Jack, Cora, and the rest of the evil Disney villains.

Willie the Giant

Willie is a large, overweight giant. He has blue eyes, a large bright pink nose, and red hair. He wears a green long sleeve shirt, a maroon colored shirt over that with orange trim, blue pants, with blue shoes, and a black belt. He is easily persuaded, he is clumsy, and yet he can be very kind hearted at the same time.

He was animated by Glen Keane and John Lounsbery. He has been voiced by a few people over the years such as Will Ryan and Billy Gilbert.

Willie the Giant has references throughout Walt Disney theme parks around the world. One of my favorites in the shop Sir Mickey's in Walt Disney World where you can see him lifting up the roof and peeking in the shop. He can also be seen in the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom game. It would be great to see him brought into Disney parks more, but it would to tricky to create a theme for him.
