Starting with The Lion King for its 20th anniversary, Walt Disney Records’ Disney Music Emporium recently debuted its incredibly well received series of soundtracks revisited with its Legacy Collection. To celebrate the revitalized success of one of the most highly regarded animated films in cinematic history, Disney Music invited The Lion King‘s filmmakers to gather together to reminisce about a project that could never have anticipated its ultimate legacy in its contributions to both worlds of cinema and music.
Walt Disney Records’ newly created line of collectible CDs, Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection, will celebrate the anniversaries of Disney’s most cherished and classic properties that have been enchanting audiences for generations. Through 2015, Walt Disney Records will celebrate 12 anniversaries including Pinocchio (75th), Fantasia (75th), Cinderella (65th), Lady and the Tramp (60th), Sleeping Beauty (55th), Mary Poppins (50th), The Lion King (20th) and Toy Story (20th), among others.
Pinocchio, which celebrates Walt Disney’s second feature-length animated film, follows in the footsteps of Whalen’s poster for Dumbo. Limited to an edition size of 400, this hand-numbered screen print measures 24″ x 36″ in size and will retail for $50.
Whalen’s The Mad Scientist, which follows in the footsteps of Steamboat Willie, The Wise Little Hen and Mickey’s Service Station, celebrating classic Disney animated shorts, will be limited to an edition size of 370. Also hand-numbered and screen printed, this poster measures 18″ x 24″ in size.
