All I can offer here is a semi-educated guess. Since Disney pretty much fired off its entire hand-drawn animation staff last year in order to shift the company towards total computer generated animation, it probably proved to be a serious setback for production of "The Search for Mickey Mouse." They probably had to send the film off to France or Australia to be completed by one of Disney's overseas animation units, which I assume haven't been entirely shut down yet. So one of two things is going to happen at this point: Although a bit off schedule (it was due out Feb. of last year), "The Search for Mickey Mouse" will be released on video/DVD around some major gift-buying holiday this year, or the entire project will get buried. The second one would be a rare occurance for Disney, who, to my knowledge, always finishes what they start, animation-wise. But the first possibility seems pretty likely, though there's always hope of it ending up on the big screen yet. After all, "Toy Story II" was originally intended as straight to video, and look how that got turned around, and with Oscar nominations, no less.
