Marvel Music Presents “Captain America: Civil War” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Featuring Music By Henry Jackman

Marvel Music’s Captain America: Civil War original motion picture soundtrack will be available in physical and digital formats on Friday, May 6, 2016.  The soundtrack features music composed and produced by Henry Jackman (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Captain Phillips” and “Big Hero 6”).  Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Marisa Tomei, Tom Holland, Frank Grillo and Martin Freeman, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.

Anthony & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige, p.g.a. producing. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.

Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Resort Announces New Kingswell Neighborhood Named for Where Walt and Roy Disney Set up Their First Hollywood Studio

Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Resort announced plans for its newest neighborhood, Kingswell. The new neighborhood will feature the last estate-sized homesites available for purchase within the community. Sale of select homesites will begin today, with prices of finished custom homes to start at $3 million.

Custom single-family homes in the new Kingswell neighborhood will range from approximately 5,000 to 7,000 square feet and feature design and architectural inspiration from European and Caribbean influences. The initial homesites released boast approximate half-acre lots, some with scenic water views. The Kingswell neighborhood is planned to include 53 total homesites.

“Golden Oak offers the best in luxury experiences with a unique opportunity to live at Walt Disney World Resort,” said Page Pierce, vice president of Disney Resort Real Estate Development. “We’re excited to welcome residents to our new Kingswell neighborhood where families can build special, lifelong memories for generations to come.” 

The neighborhood is planned to include a community park with natural landscapes, which will be available to all Golden Oak residents.  Near the park, a new bronze sculpture of Pinocchio will be featured adding to the unique Golden Oak sculpture series that includes sophisticated interpretations of classic Disney animation located throughout the community.

Rooted in tradition, Kingswell is named after the street where Walt and Roy Disney set up their first Hollywood studio – the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio – in California where they produced the classic cartoon series, Alice Comedies 

Like all Golden Oak homeowners, Kingswell residents become members of the Golden Oak Club, which provides access to amenities including Summerhouse, the private clubhouse for residents featuring the full-service Markham’s dining room and Tyler’s Lounge, state-of-the-art fitness facility and pool. Homeowners can also take advantage of the Resident Services team, which offers concierge-style services and events throughout the year, in addition to assisting with personal requests such as coordinating park transportation, spa and golf reservations, special event tickets and more.

Kingswell is Golden Oak’s sixth neighborhood to be released since the exclusive luxury residential community broke ground in 2010. Golden Oak welcomed its first residents in 2012 and recently announced the addition of Four Seasons Private Residences Orlando in 2015.

Third And Final Show Added Due To Overwhelming Demand ‘Disney’s The Little Mermaid Live In Concert’

Sara Bareilles And Rebel Wilson Lead All-Star Cast In Disney's The Little Mermaid Live In Concert At The Hollywood Bowl Along John Stamos and others!

Sara Bareilles And Rebel Wilson Lead All-Star Cast In Disney’s The Little Mermaid Live In Concert At The Hollywood Bowl Along John Stamos and others!

Fans of Disney’s animated classic, DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID, will now have another chance to see ‘DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID LIVE IN CONCERT’ at the Hollywood Bowl on Monday, June 6.  The first two nights of this concert event sold out within hours when it was announced that an all-star cast of performers would be singing the songs from the Oscar® and Grammy®-winning score as the film plays on the Bowl’s movie screen accompanied by a full, live orchestra. Tickets for the third and final concert go on sale at ticketmaster.com at 10:00am Pacific on Wednesday, April 27.

For this performance, Disney Legend JODI BENSON will be singing in the role of Ariel.  She joins REBEL WILSON (“Pitch Perfect 1 & 2” and “How To Be Single”) as Ursula and the singing cast which includes JOHN STAMOS (“Grandfathered”) as Chef Louis, TITUSS BURGESS (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) as Sebastian (whom he originally played on Broadway in DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID), NORM LEWIS (“Porgy and Bess” and “Scandal”) as King Triton (whom he also originally played on Broadway in DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID), DARREN CRISS (“Glee”) as Prince Eric and JOSHUA COLLEY (Broadway’s “A Bronx Tale: The Musical”) as Flounder.

For this performance only, the Opening Guest Stars will include original Disney animation voice talents SUSAN EGAN, who was Meg in the Disney animated feature film HERCULES as well as the first Belle on Broadway in DISNEY’S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, and BRAD KANE who was the singing voice of ALADDIN in Disney’s animated feature film.

This will be a special family event at the Hollywood Bowl filled with an ocean of treats including a fireworks spectacular, costume contest, and other surprises.

“I’m so thrilled and incredibly blessed to be invited once again to sing at the Hollywood Bowl—and this time as my beloved Ariel during this unique commemoration of our movie, ‘The Little Mermaid,'” said Jodi Benson. “It’s such a special honor to celebrate my 30th anniversary with the Walt Disney Company by standing on the Hollywood Bowl stage and singing the beautiful music of the brilliant Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. I am truly honored and eternally grateful to Howard and Alan and our directors, Ron Clements and John Musker, for allowing me to bring Ariel to life and to be ‘part of your world’ for all of these many amazing years.”

“I’m so excited to be singing live at the Hollywood Bowl with an amazing cast of singers,” said Rebel Wilson. “I’ve never been to the Hollywood Bowl so for my first time there, to actually be invited to sing, is such an incredible honor. THE LITTLE MERMAID is one of my absolute favorite movies. Alan Menken is a complete genius and I am really looking forward to meeting him at rehearsals. I am beyond a fan-girl. I hope to do the amazing Pat Carroll [the original animated singing voice] proud performing Ursula’s song. It’s just such a delicious role that I’ve always wanted to play. This will be such a great event for the whole family to attend.”

As DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID plays on the Hollywood Bowl’s movie screen, a 71-piece orchestra and 12-person choir will be performing the film’s Oscar-winning score and songs live to film.

Beloved musical numbers from DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID including “Under the Sea,” “Kiss the Girl,” “Poor Unfortunate Souls” and “Part of Your World” will be performed live on stage by the all-star cast, accompanied by orchestra. Also in store will be performances of a few of the songs from the Tony®-nominated Broadway adaptation of DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Glenn Slater. Music Supervisors for the show are Grammy®-nominees JULIA MICHELS & JULIANNE JORDAN (“Pitch Perfect 1 & 2”).

The concept of performing an animated musical live to film was embraced enthusiastically last Halloween by sold-out crowds with DISNEY’S TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS LIVE IN CONCERT AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL. The producing team has reunited to present DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID LIVE IN CONCERT AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL. The producers are Andrew Hewitt & Bill Silva Presents, Laura Engel & Richard Kraft and Tim Fox & Alison Ahart Williams, in association with Disney Concerts. Concert creative direction is by Richard Kraft.

DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID LIVE IN CONCERT is produced under license by Disney Concerts, a division of ABC Inc. Disney Concerts currently licenses 14 different concert packages including, Fantasia, Pixar In Concert, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Alice In Wonderland, Frozen, Ratatouille, The Pirates of the Caribbean series (episodes I-IV), and Silly Symphonies, which last year accounted for approximately 325 performances in some of the world’s top venues including Lincoln Center, Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House, Tokyo Forum and the Hollywood Bowl.

Doors will open at 6:30PM with a costume contest to follow, and the concert begins at 8:00PM.
