Mouse Music #5 – The Lion King

What an amazing episode we have for you today! In our fifth episode, we talk about the 1994 blockbuster with it’s multiple award-winning soundtrack, ‘The Lion King’ by Hans Zimmer, with songs by Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice.

We begin in Africa! The one and only Rachel Herrick joins us to chat about the peak of the Disney Renaissance, our generation’s ‘Frozen’, the 32nd animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics, The Lion King, directed by Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff. We have a blast recounting our childhood memories of this Disney classic, discussing it’s stellar voice cast, incredible score, our favourite songs and the equally brilliant Broadway version!

Also, our very own Disney Legend Chris Lyndon returns to bring us yet another tasty tidbit from the Disney Music Archives. Wendell sits down with Chris who presents us with a song from the 1943 animated propaganda short starring Donald Duck, ‘Der Fuehrer’s Face’, composed by Oliver Wallace. Chris also informs us of the happenings at the Disney studio during World War II. We hope you enjoy this week’s history lesson, we’ll test you on it later!

In our final segment, In the Parks, Will and Wend put their bug eyes on and head to Disney’s Animal Kingdom for the first time on the show. We trek to Discovery Island to discuss the iconic centrepiece, the Tree of Life, the 3D show inside, It’s Tough to Be a Bug! based on Pixar’s ‘A Bug’s Life’, and the hilariously-titled, musical earworms that accompany the attraction including a show-stopping theme song by George Wilkins and a brilliant score, composed by film composer Bruce Broughton who it is our pleasure to talk about once again.

If you love Disney as much as us then please get in touch! We´d LOVE to hear your memories of The Lion King, as well as your thoughts on Der Fuehrer’s Face and It’s Tough to Be a Bug! Contact us via email: sideshowsound@gmail.com Tweet us: @sideshowsound or chat with us on Facebook: SideshowSoundTheatre

Sit back, relax and enjoy the show! Remember, as you exit, please deposit your bugs eyes outside of the theatre, unless you’re a real bug of course.
