 "The Mouse That Soared" Review 
Add to favorites

In "The Mouse That Soared," a successful flying circus mouse reflects back on his early days as an orphaned mouse. He overcomes adversity and becomes a wildly popular circus act in this beautifully assembled and entertaining animated short from director Kyle Bell. Flashing back through various points in his life, "The Mouse That Soared" features delightful visual effects and a beautifully layered production design from Frederick J. Gardner III accompanied by a spirited sound design from David C. Hughes that makes one feel like P.T. Barnum himself is in the room.
