Regarding Disney’s animated classics, one of the biggest unsung heroes has to be A Goofy Movie (1995). Easily one of the studio’s biggest cult classics, the road trip movie with Goofy and Max is about to make a comeback in an unexpected way.

Bill Farmer and Jim Cummings, the voice actors for Goofy and Pete and icons of Disney animation, previously revealed that the beloved chunk of ’90s nostalgia would be getting a new film in the form of Not Just a Goof. The new Disney doc from director Christopher Ninness features interviews with the cast, crew, and creatives behind one of Disney’s sleeper hits, but it goes far beyond the standard behind-the-scenes story.

Disney Television Animation recently shared new concepts and updates that explore Goofy, Goof Troop, and the legion of fans who continue to make the animated feature such a hit even decades later. The passion project that unites both the fans and creative forces involved received a new development, per Disney TVA’s website, and many viewers might be missing out on the next Goofy Movie chapter.

The announcement also displayed photos, concept art, and poster art for the project. Additionally, the update also included the following synopsis that revealed more details into the film’s subject matter, as well as original cast members reuniting after nearly 30 years.

“‘NOT JUST A GOOF’ follows a ragtag group of artists from Disney TVA in their Disney Movie Toons theatrical sub-division yearning for an opportunity to prove that they could do more while they undeniably do just that, the film also pinpoints the ever-changing studio dynamic of this era, with Katzenberg being ousted while A Goofy Movie was still in production.”

“NOT JUST A GOOF features insight from ‘A Goofy Movie’ with director Kevin Lima, producer Dan Rounds, story supervisor Brian Pimental, screenwriter Jymn Magon, as well voice actors Bill Farmer, Jason Marsden, Jim Cummings, Rob Paulsen, Jenna von Oÿ and Powerline’s VA Tevin Campbell.”

At the time of writing, the film has no set release date, but it might be safe to assume that it will eventually join other Disney documentaries on Disney+, like Frank and Ollie (1995) and Howard (2018), for our streaming pleasure. Either way, the film will undoubtedly be a revealing and intimate look at one of the studio’s hidden gems.
