About Bret Iwan

Bret Iwan is the fourth official voice of Mickey Mouse. This is a role he has held since 2009. His first recording in the role was for Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Adventurers Celebration in June of 2009. Today, his voice can be heard around the world as Mickey Mouse in various programs like Mickey and the Roadster Racers/Mickey Mouse Mixed-Up AdventuresMickey Mouse FunhouseMickey Saves Christmas, along with multiple other shows, video games, and also in the parks (including in Fantasmic! at Disneyland when it is running).

Along with lending his voice to Mickey Mouse, Bret is also a talented artist. He went to school and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Ringling College of Art and Design in 2004. He then moved to Kansas City to start a successful career at Hallmark Greeting Cards, utilizing his artistic skills. Around the time he became the official voice of Mickey Mouse, he also was introduced to the team at the Collectors Editions and the Disney Fine Art program. This led to a collaboration that has seen Bret bring his artistic skills into the world of Disney.

Bret Iwan continues to create new magic for Disney fans around the globe to experience, both with his voice and also with his paint brushes. His artwork can be found on the Disney Fine Art website. Bret Iwan also makes regular appearances at conventions and other Disney events around the globe. He can be found on his Instagram, where he frequently shares where he will be appearing.

Mickey Mouse 95th Birthday Official Portrait

Through the years, Bret has created multiple portraits of Mickey Mouse, including the 95th Birthday Official Portrait of Mickey Mouse. This was unveiled at the recent Destination D23 event. This official portrait of Mickey Mouse joins the ranks of paintings that date back to 1953 when John Hench painted an official portrait of Mickey Mouse for his 25th birthday. In 1978, Hench would again paint a portrait of Mickey Mouse for his 50th birthday. He returned to paint portraits for Mickey’s 60th, 70th, and 75th birthday before the torch was passed to Art Director Paul Felix for Mickey Mouse’s 80th. The 90th Birthday Official Portrait of Mickey Mouse was painted by Disney Animated Mark Henn. Bret Iwan now becomes the fourth person to paint an official portrait of Mickey Mouse for one of his birthdays.

The 95th Birthday Official Portrait of Mickey Mouse is a magical painting of Sorcerer Mickey Mouse called “Swept Up Into The Magic.” This painting shows the magic of Disney and the power of wishing upon a star, as so often are themes in Disney stories throughout the last 100 years. The portrait is being released as The Walt Disney Company celebrates its 100th anniversary.
