Following Disney’s classic tradition of great storytelling, unforgettable characters, music, and adventure,this is the joyful telling of Bongo and Mickey and the Beanstalk, two timeless tales magically brought to life by the beloved Jiminy Cricket and the masterful combination of animation and live action.
