Disney celebrated more than its share of movie milestones in 2015. These included anniversaries for 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). Now, just in time for Christmas, Walt Disney Records is releasing The Legacy Collection Box Set.
What most Disney fans understand that those who have let go of the little bit of hope that holds on to childhood innocence is that the music to these classic animation and live-action films is that they do more than enhance the story, the music of the Sherman Brothers and Alan Menken engulf the story, they create an experience that one without the other could not exist.
Each of the CD soundtracks in this collction include background information on the making of the films, art, storyboards and much more. If you loved these classics before, The Disney Legacy Collection will only intensify your enjoyment of these treasured classics.
I often find myself humming to myself any one of these tunes and after having uploaded them to the hard drive in my car, I am never without my Disney music, especially when I head over over to Disneyland…yes, I am one of those annual pass holders.
The only things that could make it more magical is if the Blue Fairy showed up and started granting wishes…sorry Tinker Bell, you aren’t included in this collection, so we went with our less credited heroine.
There are not enough hours in the day to enjoy The Disney Legacy Collection all at once, but from the moment you open the package, you will pop in the first CD to whichever is your favorite feature and sing along while you go page-by-page in the CD jacket.
The Disney Legacy Collection is available now and will be a great gift for anyone who loves anything Disney related.
