Doritos Rocks Out With 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'

Doritos Rocks Out With ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’

The galactic beats are dropping once more…snackable style.

Through a collaboration with Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Doritos, one of the marquee brands from PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division, is helping introduce the world – and galaxy – to the hotly anticipated film soundtrack.

Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack will be available in out-of-this-world fashion via custom Doritos bags featuring a retro cassette tape deck-inspired player built right into the packaging that plays the full soundtrack. Consumers can purchase the custom bags starting Friday, April 28 on Amazon.com/Doritos while supplies last, and Doritos will also help unveil the soundtrack at special events in New York and Los Angeles.

The unique soundtrack release is part of a collaboration between Doritos and Marvel that also features Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 branding on Doritos packaging nationwide in support of the upcoming May 5 movie premiere.

“The soundtrack to the first Guardians of the Galaxy film was a hit and became immensely popular with music fans, so we wanted to create a unique way for fans to experience the second installment,” said Ryan Matiyow, senior director of marketing, Frito Lay North America. “This collaboration across entertainment and music will give fans a new and different way to experience both the soundtrack and Doritos snacks.”

Released in July 2014, the first film’s soundtrack garnered unparalleled success: it reached No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart, becoming the first soundtrack album in history consisting of entirely previously released songs to top the chart; it topped the Billboard Top Soundtrack chart for 11 consecutive weeks and 16 weeks in total; and it has sold more than 1 million copies in the U.S. and has been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

“Marvel and Doritos have had such a good relationship through the years,” said Mindy Hamilton, SVP of Global Partnerships at Marvel Entertainment. “We have a very similar set of core fans, so we wanted to maximize availability of this soundtrack by making it as accessible in a unique way that only Doritos and Marvel could do. What’s cooler than buying a bag of Doritos with the soundtrack built in?”

Doritos will also keep the beats going by encouraging fans to “Rock Out Loud” by belting out one of the soundtrack’s iconic songs at pop-up recording booths in New York and Los Angeles on May 5 – the day of the movie premiere. By showing their love for the music, fans will have the chance to win various prizes, including the custom cassette player replica Doritos bags, concert and other event tickets, and free bags of Doritos. The recording booths will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. ET at Greeley Square near Sixth Avenue and Broadway in New York City and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. PT on the corner of Hollywood and Highland in Hollywood, Calif.

From Surreal Worlds to Super Heroes, Groundbreaking New Experiences Premiere During Blockbuster Summer of Fun at Disney Parks

Anchored by two amazing new experiences ­– one an alien planet where mountains float and Banshees fly, the other an epic adventure inviting a breathtaking drop into the world of Super Heroes – Disney parks on both coasts are poised to make summer 2017 a season like none other. It all begins May 27, with the debuts of Pandora ­– The World of Avatar at Walt Disney World Resort and Guardians of the Galaxy ­– Mission: BREAKOUT! at the Disneyland Resort.

With a supporting cast of even more new events and great attractions at both resorts, there’s plenty of fun in the sun for Disney Parks guests in California and Florida.

“In the U.S. and around the world, Disney parks are making new magic for our guests,” said Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “With an irreverent and rockin’ new attraction at Disneyland Resort and an entire never-before-seen world at Walt Disney World Resort opening this May, there are fantastic experiences in store for our guests. Starting this summer they will be able to step into the worlds of their favorite stories and characters like never before.” 

Throughout the season, guests at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts will experience the kind of sensational adventures only Disney can create.

At Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, opening May 27: Pandora – The World of Avatar, an all-new land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, will transport guests to a mystical world of bioluminescent rainforests, floating mountains and soaring banshees. In collaboration with filmmaker James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment, Disney is bringing to life the fantasy world of Pandora, inspired by Cameron’s epic film AVATAR. Guests will fly above the jungles of Pandora while riding on a mountain banshee on the thrilling Avatar Flight of Passage. And they’ll board reed boats for Na’vi River Journey, a family-friendly excursion down a rainforest river to see the Na’vi Shaman of Songs.

At Disneyland Resort in California, opening May 27: Outrageous and irreverent characters from the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, comics and animated series lead guests on a high-energy adventure in Guardians of the Galaxy ­– Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure Park. The chaotic and hilarious adventure combines a breathtaking free-fall sensation with all-new visual and audio effects, plus the attraction’s “awesome mix tape” of music inspired by the films’ soundtracks. Guests will board a gantry lift for multiple, random ride experiences in a pulse-pounding rise and fall as they join Rocket, one of the most unusual heroes a guest will encounter, in a daring plan to free the captive Guardians from The Collector’s Fortress. Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! is the cornerstone of the summertime celebration, Summer of Heroes, where guests will enjoy Super Hero encounters; an awesome dance-off featuring Star-Lord and Gamora; and, for a limited time, a challenging “Avengers Training Initiative” for young recruits.

The two, all-new experiences are just the beginning of the fun at Disney Parks on both coasts this summer:

 AT DISNEYLAND RESORT

As Disney California Adventure unveils the sensational new Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! and Summer of Heroes, exciting experiences will be found all across the Disneyland Resort this summer. Specific dates for some will be announced soon. 

  • Guests have a chance to be dazzled by the beloved and iconic “Main Street Electrical Parade,” with an extended run through Aug. 20.
  • The spectacular nighttime “Fantasmic!” show re-opens at Disneyland this summer, and the classic Disneyland Railroad and Rivers of America attractions return to delight park guests.
  • Also in Disneyland, Star Wars and Disney fans will step into out-of-this-galaxy adventures at Star Wars Launch Bay, meeting some Star Wars characters and getting an up-close look at replica props and models from “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
  • Across both parks, guests will meet characters familiar and new – from Moana and Chewbacca to the stars of Summer of Heroes, including Groot, Captain America and Spider-Man. Photos with Groot are sure to be a big hit as he makes his first appearance in a Disney park.
  • “Disney Junior Dance Party” debuts Friday, May 26, at Disney California Adventure, creating a fun concert experience where adults and kids can sing and dance along to the music. Popular Disney Junior characters from Disney Junior TV shows “Doc McStuffins,” “Sofia the First” and “The Lion Guard” will be joined by characters from the new series “Mickey and the Roadster Racers.”

AT WALT DISNEY WORLD RESORT

The stunning world of Pandora headlines a full lineup of new attractions at Walt Disney World Resort.  From theme parks to water parks to resorts to Disney Springs, there’s something new in every corner of this world.

  • A dazzling new after-dark show, Rivers of Light, treats Disney’s Animal Kingdom guests to a celebration of nature in an experience that features water, floats, projections, fire and light choreographed to an original musical score.
  • A new nighttime experience premieres at Disney’s Hollywood Studios May 26. A full orchestra will provide the soundtrack for a 40-minute visual journey into The Music of Pixar LIVE!
  • Additional movie replicas from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story welcome guests to Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
  • A new family-friendly raft adventure, Miss Adventure Falls, recently debuted at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park.
  • A May 12 opening is set for “Happily Ever After,” the most spectacular fireworks display in the history of the Magic Kingdom.
  • Disney Springs rocks out with more new, food and beverage locations to complete its transition from Downtown Disney.

All of these new experiences add up to a thrilling summer at Disney Parks, with blockbuster excitement awaiting guests at parks on both coasts.

Walt Disney Records Presents Born In China Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Features Music By Composer Barnaby Taylor And Original Song “Everything Everything” By American Authors

Walt Disney Records Presents Born In China Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Features Music By Composer Barnaby Taylor And Original Song "Everything Everything" By American Authors

Walt Disney Records Presents Born In China Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Features Music By Composer Barnaby Taylor And Original Song “Everything Everything” By American Authors

Walt Disney Records is set to release the digital soundtrack to Disneynature’s new film Born in China on April 21, 2017—the same day the film opens in theaters nationwide.  The album features original score composed by Emmy Award®-winning film and television composer, Barnaby Taylor, along with the original track “Everything Everything” performed by Island Records recording artist American Authors, who wrote the song after seeing—and being deeply inspired by—the film.  The music video and single are available today.  The video can be seen HERE. The single is available at digital retailers disneymusic.co/AAuthorsEverything and streaming services disneymusic.co/AAuthorsEverythingWS.

The story of “Born in China“—fun but emotional, intimate yet vast, and wild while heartfelt—called for a score that evoked the majesty of China’s natural world. Composer Barnaby Taylor is behind the Emmy®-winning music for “Wild China,” the BBC’s six-part landmark series that was executive produced by “Born in China” producer Brian Leith, and originally broadcast in 2008. “It’s a traditional Western orchestral score that’s infused with some lovely Chinese flavors,” says Leith of the “Born in China” score. “I think he’s done a fantastic job.”

 Says Taylor, “‘Born in China‘ celebrates the epic, sometimes other-worldly landscapes of China, while simultaneously revealing the most intimate moments in the lives of four charismatic animals: panda, monkey, chiru and snow leopard,” he says. “Musically linking these animals with an overarching theme is the semi-mythical crane, a bird that symbolizes rebirth—an ancient philosophy and belief system that has a strong vein in the ‘Born in China‘ film. Therefore, the music had to be intimate whilst also reflecting the varied regions of China.”

Given an array of animals featured in the film, Taylor applied individual themes to each of the central characters and infused the sounds of China into the score with a host of unique instruments, including the Tibetan horn, Mongolian fiddle, Guzheng (zither) and Chinese dulcimer.

Filmmakers called on the New York-based rock-pop band American Authors to provide the compelling and optimistic end-credit song. “‘Everything Everything’ is about how life is so much better when you’re with your best friends,” says band frontman Zachary Barnett. “There are so many exciting adventures in this world and they should be shared with loved ones. We wanted to channel each of the animals’ spirits and journeys into this song.”

The Born in China soundtrack will be available at digital retailers and streaming services on April 21. For more information on Walt Disney Records’ releases, please visit Disney.com/music, become a fan at Facebook.com/disneymusic, follow us at Twitter.com/disneymusic, Instagram.com/disneymusic and Snapchat.

Moviegoers who see Disneynature’s new True Life Adventure film “Born in China” during its opening week (April 21-27, 2017) will benefit the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Based on opening-week attendance, Disneynature, via the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, will make a contribution to the WWF to help protect wild pandas and snow leopards. Advance tickets to the movie are on sale now at Fandango. http://www.fandango.com/borninchina_185550/movietimes
