On January 14, 2014, the original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Frozen, as well as the single ‘Let It Go,’ were recognized by the RIAA as being certified gold (selling more than 500,000 physical copies). To commemorate the event as well as the success of the film and the album in general, Disney held a private showcase event last night the Vibrato Grill Jazz Club in Los Angeles.
In honor of the release of the Dreams trailer featuring ‘Once Upon A Dream’ by Lana Del Rey, Walt Disney Studios has provided us with two new high-res stills from Maleficent, in theaters May 30, 2014. The new stills have been added to the beginning of our gallery embedded below. The single, which is currently free exclusively through Google Play, will be formally released on February 4 and has subsequently returned to Amazon, though a preview has yet to be posted. The full original motion picture soundtrack is slated for a May 27, 2014 release.
Earlier this evening, during the airing of the 56th Annual Grammy Awards on the CBS Network, Walt Disney Studios provided an exclusive sneak peek at its upcoming film, Maleficent (May 30, 2014). Featured in the ad for the film was a cover of the 1959 Sleeping Beauty classic, ‘Once Upon A Dream’ as performed by Lana Del Rey, which will play over the closing credits for the film. Del Rey was also nominated in two categories for the coveted Grammy: Best Pop Vocal (Paradise), Best Song Written for Visual Media (‘Young and Beautiful’ for The Great Gatsby). Del Rey’s ‘Summertime Sadness’ was also nominated for Best Re-mixed Recording, Non-classical for its mix by Cedric Gervais. You can check out the teaser trailer embedded below.
According to a new listing on Amazon, Disney will release a cover of the Sleeping Beauty classic, ‘Once Upon A Dream’ as performed by Lana Del Rey for the original motion picture soundtrack of its upcoming film, Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie. The single will release on January 26. The news comes shortly after Walt Disney Studios teased the news that they will air a special sneak peek at the film during the Grammy Awards on CBS this Sunday. Presumably the spot will feature the new track.
Thanks to a pre-order listing on iTunes, we now have the complete track list for the double-album original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks as composed by Thomas Newman (also available via Amazon). The soundtrack is scheduled to be released on December 10, 2013, just ahead of the film’s limited release on December 13, followed by its wide release on December 20, 2013.
Note: This is a review of the original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Frozen. Reviews for the film are under embargo until later this month.
On November 25, Walt Disney Records will release the original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Frozen in both single disc and 2-disc deluxe formats (available for pre-order via Amazon and iTunes), the latter of which features demos of songs that didn’t make it into to the film for various reasons (25 were written with just eight plus a reprise making the final cut). In addition to the songs written by the [married] songwriting team of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the soundtrack features a score by Christophe Beck and orchestration and arrangements by Dave Metzger. With a pedigree such as this, it’s a natural expectation for the soundtrack to exceed, but frankly expectations are greatly exceeded in what can easily be seen as Disney’s best musical since Beauty and the Beast, and in some ways, even better.
El Capitan Theatre moviegoers will kick off holiday celebrations early with an exclusive advance engagement of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen, beginning five days before the film’s nationwide release. El Capitan is frozen over this holiday season, welcoming guests into a snow-covered wonderland — complete with ice-capped opera boxes and a flurry of snowflakes. Frozen showings, which will run Nov. 22, 2013, to Jan. 5, 2014, will be preceded by ice carving performance artists on stage, as well as Frozen characters Anna and Elsa in their first live-on-stage appearances.
Earlier today, Amazon.com began listing the soundtrack for ‘Toy Story of Terror,’ the Toy Story Toons Halloween animated special, which was scored by long-time Pixar collaborator Michael Giacchino. You can find the track list below.
What starts out as a fun road trip for the Toy Story gang takes an unexpected turn for the worse when the trip detours to a roadside motel. After one of the toys goes missing, the others find themselves caught up in a mysterious sequence of events that must be solved before they all suffer the same fate in this ‘Toy Story of Terror!’
We have previously shared news that the original motion picture soundtrack for Disney’s upcoming animated film, Frozen, would be a two disc set, featuring an original score composed by Christophe Beck with new songs by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
Up until now, however, other than previously announced details such as Elsa’s ‘Let it Go’ (performed by Idina Menzel) and Olaf’s ‘In the Summer’ (performed by Josh Gad) along with a supposed leaked track list, there has been very little in the way of additional details.
