People found a film in 2008 during a review of old films in northern Norway. Later, they identified it as a missing Walt Disney movie from 1927.

The animated Christmas movie is called the “Empty Socks,” and it is stars Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, who was the forerunner to Mickey Mouse. The historic film is 5 minutes and 30 seconds long.

Now the film is digitally restored. People sent the copies to the Walt Disney Company in America. The original copy will stay in the archives.

Difficult words: review (the act of checking something), star (to be the main performer), forerunner (something which existed before something similar came).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
