I really like this. Not too sure about the song choice (though that is totally personal preference talking), but the editor has done a good job of crafting an original story from pieces of Beauty and the Beast and the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Still prefer the Beast, but Phoebus is a good enough replacement. ^.^
My inner Disney fangirl is squeeing.
So I had not heard about this at ALL when I suddenly saw it on Good Morning America. They just opened a whole new SECTION at Disneyworld’s Magic Kingdom, which is still being expanded with an amazing Little Mermaid ride and Neverland stuff, but for now the Beauty and the Beast area is open!
THE BALLROOM, IT’S A RESTAURANT, IN THE CASTLE
Okay, this is all kinds of awesome. Can’t wait to see the Neverland and Little Mermaid areas as well.
Very well-done. ^.^
Little follow-up from the Brave song that I posted earlier this week: Julie Fowlis performs “Touch the Sky” live with the musicians who originally recorded the track - Eamon Doorley and Duncan Chisholm. Eamon’s instrument is, according to the video description, a gouzouki (which is apparently a thing in traditional Irish music now?), a combination between the Greek bouzouki and a guitar. I quite like modern Celtic music; part of it is that it reminds me of traditional Appalachian folk music. The two are sort of distant cousins. Any way about it, love!!!
“Touch the Sky” from Pixar’s Brave, performed by Julie Fowlis. Love the Celtic flavoring. It was nice to see such a well-done movie about mother-daughter relationships. You don’t see too many of those. It was also fun, charming, with a strong and strong-willed heroine in the feisty, arrow-slinging Merida.
Another childhood favorite: “Transformation,” the finale from Disney’s 1991 classic Beauty and the Beast, composed by the incredible Alan Menken. This will never not sound magical to me.
“Cody’s Flight” from Disney’s The Rescuers Down Under, composed by Bruce Broughton. This score is, like, the music of my childhood summers. :) The film was released in 1990.
Neat Disney edit.
As the years passed, he fell into despair and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a beast?
I loved this movie, but forgot how gorgeous it was. ^.^
You are never too old to hang in the Disney store.
