Star Wars: The Force Awakens Original Motion Picture Soundtrack From Oscar®-Winning Composer John Williams

The original motion picture soundtrack for the record-breaking Star Wars: The Force Awakens, featuring new score conducted and composed by five-time Academy Award®-winning composer John Williams, has entered the Billboard 200 chart at No. 5, scanning over 100,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The last and only all-score soundtrack to debut in the Top 5 was Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 1999.

The album is No. 1 on Billboard’s Soundtrack and Overall Classical Charts; at iTunes, peaked at No. 1 on the Soundtrack chart and No. 3 on the Overall Album chart; and at Amazon, the album is No. 1 on the Soundtrack chart and No. 2 on the Overall Digital Album chart.  Additionally, the album has over 10.3M streams on Spotify.  

From Lucasfilm and visionary director J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has broken numerous box office records, most recently becoming the fastest film to reach $1 billion globally, a feat it accomplished in 12 days with over $540 million domestically and $550 million internationally. It posted the biggest debut in industry history with $248 million domestically and $529 million globally in its first weekend, as well as the biggest second weekend of all time domestically with $149.2 million.

Oscar®-winning composer John Williams’ ubiquitous Star Wars “Main Title” theme has become part of popular culture since it was first heard accompanying Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977.  It is no surprise that Williams’ orchestral compositions for Star Wars are among the most beloved and recognizable themes in cinematic history, from the classic “Main Title” theme introduced in Star Wars: A New Hope to the ominous “Imperial March” from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back to the stirring “Duel of the Fates” from the prequel trilogy.

After creating the scores for all six of the previous Star Wars films, Williams returns to compose and conduct his signature sweeping music for The Force Awakens.

Williams, whose career spans over six decades, has won five Academy Awards® and he has scored some of the most popular and critically acclaimed films of all time, including Jaws, the Indiana Jones franchise, the first three Harry Potter films, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Lincoln, Schindler’s List, and countless others.

Abrams, Deluxe’s Stereo D, Hollywood’s leading producer of 3D for feature films, has been commissioned by Lucasfilm and The Walt Disney Studios to create the stereoscopic editions for three upcoming releases in the iconic Star Wars franchise.

This marks the first collaboration between Lucasfilm and Burbank-based Stereo D. Stereo D is a subsidiary of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc.

In making the announcement, President of Deluxe’s Stereo D William Sherak said, “As a company of artists and technicians who all embrace their inner Jedi, we are thrilled and honored to be part of the Star Wars franchise. As a life-long fan, this represents the ultimate in wish fulfillment.”

“The quality of Stereo D’s work provides visually exciting experiences for all audiences and we are very pleased to be working with them on the next three movies in the Star Wars franchise,” says Lucasfilm’s SVP of Physical Production Jason McGatlin.  “A creative collaboration between Lucasfilm, ILM and Stereo D allows us to leverage efficiencies and deliver an amazing 3D experience.”

Work on Star Wars: The Force Awakens reunited Deluxe with Abrams, for whom Stereo D produced 3D on Star Trek Into Darkness.  The studio had also collaborated with ILM, the Lucasfilm-based visual effects powerhouse, on a robust pipeline to create the stereoscopic 3D on Marvel’s The Avengers, Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, among others.

Deluxe’s Stereo D Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Aaron Parry and his team will oversee the stereo production in tandem with Lucasfilm’s Vice President of Visual Effects Janet Lewin and Lucasfilm’s Vice President of Post-Production Pippa Anderson.

Stereo D has created the 3D conversions for over 30 films, including Titanic in 3D from Twentieth Century Fox; Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy,  Marvel’s The Avengers, Marvel’s Iron Man 3 and Marvel’s Thor; as well as Jurassic Park 3D, and Jurassic World, from Universal Pictures; and Star Trek Into Darkness from Paramount Pictures.

Walt Disney Records Releases “The Good Dinosaur” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Score Composed By Mychael And Jeff Danna

Walt Disney Records Releases "The Good Dinosaur" Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Score Composed By Mychael And Jeff Danna

Walt Disney Records Releases “The Good Dinosaur” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Score Composed By Mychael And Jeff Danna

Disney•Pixar’s “The Good Dinosaur” features an original score by Academy Award® -winning composer Mychael Danna and Emmy®-nominated composer Jeff Danna. The soundtrack is available today. Directed by Peter Sohn and produced by Denise Ream (“Cars 2”), Disney•Pixar’s “The Good Dinosaur” opens in theaters on Nov. 25, 2015.

“The Good Dinosaur” takes Arlo—and the audience—on an emotional journey of self-discovery. Filmmakers opted to tell the story in a new way, relying less on dialogue, while leaning into the power of nature, compelling characters and music that captures the imagination. “It’s a dinosaur movie, so the music needs to be big,” says director Peter Sohn. “But it’s also that classic boy-and-his-dog story embarking on a journey home. That calls for a certain sensitivity to embrace the emotions. Mychael and Jeff are brilliant artists when it comes to setting up a theme that can be sweet and hopeful one moment and strong and powerful the next. And they do it in a unique way.”

“Pixar sets the bar for animation—they set the bar for imagination,” says Mychael Danna. “So we wanted to do something different, blending traditional instrumentation and a melody-centered approach with alternative world music instruments. We draw from everywhere—historically and geographically—to help tell this story.”

Instruments utilized range from classic strings, percussion and brass to the unexpected. “We used some pre-Colombian instruments that reflected the landscape around the characters,” says Jeff Danna. “We used a lot of unusual string-guitar instruments that are primitive or folky: a bouzouki, a long-necked Greek instrument that’s like a mandolin; the Turkish cumbus; the Iranian saz; and a Nordic instrument called a harpolek. They’re really interesting when placed into the refined world of the orchestra. Our approach to many of the things in the film was to take the expected or standard thing and, just like the movie did, turn it a little sideways.”

The Good Dinosaur motion picture soundtrack is available today. For more information on Walt Disney Records’ releases, like us on Facebook.com/disneymusic or follow us at Twitter.com/disneymusic. To purchase Disney music, visit the online store at www.disneymusicstore.com.

Disney’s Animated Classic “Fantasia” Returns To Cinema Screens In Celebration Of Its 75Th Anniversary

Disney's Animated Classic "Fantasia" Returns To Cinema Screens In Celebration Of Its 75Th Anniversary

Disney’s Animated Classic “Fantasia” Returns To Cinema Screens In Celebration Of Its 75Th Anniversary

Walt Disney’s 75-year old, bold experiment blending animation and classical music resulted in the much honored animated classic “Fantasia,” which returns to theaters nationwide for a strictly limited engagement beginning Sunday, November 8.  Honored by the National Board of Review as one of its Top Ten Films of all time, and the American Film Institute on its list of Greatest American Films, “Fantasia” was also inducted into the National Film Registry by the National Film Preservation Board.  In addition to the original feature, the event screenings will include a never-before-seen introduction and performance with the Philadelphia Orchestra, led by Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin.  BY Experience will release the film with more than 1,400 screenings nationwide.  Tickets for the “Fantasia” 75th Anniversary theatrical screenings are available now at participating theater box offices and online at www.Fantasia75.com.

Released in 1940 in the middle of World War II, “Fantasia” was initially envisioned as a short film to reinvigorate the sagging popularity of Mickey Mouse, but as the budget for the short soared, Disney decided to turn it into a full blown feature.  The film consists of eight animated segments conducted by Leopold Stokowski, with the famed Philadelphia Orchestra performing seven of them.  The soundtrack was recorded in ‘Fantasound,’ a then-new sound reproduction system, making “Fantasia” the first commercial film shown in stereophonic sound.

“‘Fantasia’ was a groundbreaking film in so many ways, and we are thrilled to have it back on big screens in its original form for new generations of moviegoers to experience,” said Julie Borchard-Young, co-president of BY Experience.  “The film is just as bold and innovative today as it was 75 years ago, which is why so many of Hollywood’s leading animators and filmmakers have referenced ‘Fantasia’ as an influencer on their careers and the art of animation in general.” 

Walt Disney’s vision matched with Leopold Stokowski’s genius, and that created an instant masterpiece: Fantasia,” said Philadelphia Orchestra Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin. “The legacy of this wonderful film and its music is an important part of The Philadelphia Orchestra’s past, its present, and its future. After 75 years it is still so relevant for today’s audiences.”

In the last year, BY Experience has theatrically re-released such iconic and award-winning films as John Hughes’ seminal teen feature “The Breakfast Club,” and the fully restored Oscar-winning musical “My Fair Lady.”  Their latest re-release, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s acclaimed musical “Oklahoma!” opens November 1.

Swiss Family Robinson Fans: Industry Insiders Say This Book Is The Next Epic Blockbuster Movie

Swiss Family Robinson Fans: Industry Insiders Say This Book Is The Next Epic Blockbuster Movie

Swiss Family Robinson Fans: Industry Insiders Say This Book Is The Next Epic Blockbuster Movie

“Return to Robinson Island from bestselling author TJ Hoisington is the first Swiss Family Robinson sequel in over one hundred years. Based on the original 1812 Swiss Family Robinson novel, “Return to Robinson Island” picks up where Johann David Wyss left off over 200 years earlier with a whole new adventure. The book is scheduled for release on October 13, 2015.

What ensures is a page-turning, action-packed adventure in which the Robinson Family must use survival skills and guerrilla tactics to safeguard their lives and island home. Weaved throughout the adventure story, is a thread of love and romance that becomes threatened by the betrayal of a family friend. The Robinsons know they will be required to use their knowledge of the island and ingenuity like never before. Will the Robinson Family survive this attack?

“Return to Robinson Island” begins 15 years after the Robinson family became shipwrecked on a remote island in the East Indies. The year is 1815. Ernest Robinson is 27 years old, and a 1st Lieutenant in the British Royal Navy. When Ernest’s commanding officer, Captain Charlie, is court-martialed for war crimes, Ernest is forced to tell the truth even if his testimony sends his former Captain to prison. Meanwhile, to the surprise of the Robinsons, a vast trove of treasure is found on the island, and the Robinsons soon find themselves in mortal danger when Captain Charlie vows to make the treasure his own.

“In 2003, I pulled out the 1960 Disney movie version of Swiss Family Robinson and watched it with my two sons, who were then three and five years old. When the movie ended, I tucked my boys into bed and gave them my love. After retiring for the evening, I awoke at one o’clock in the morning. In my minds eye, a new idea for a sequel was unveiled to me. It was like a vision. It was crystal clear. I always wondered what happen to the Robinson family, and now the answers were flooding my mind. So I got out of bed and began typing.” – TJ Hoisington

Marvel Music And Hollywood Records Present Marvel’s Ant-Man Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Marvel Music And Hollywood Records Present Marvel's Ant-Man Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Marvel Music And Hollywood Records Present Marvel’s Ant-Man Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Marvel Music and Hollywood Records will release the original motion picture digital soundtrack for Marvel’s Ant-Man on July 17, 2015 and will be followed by the physical CD release on July 31, 2015. The score features music by Christophe Beck (“Frozen,” “Edge of Tomorrow,” “The Hangover,” “Pitch Perfect”). Marvel’s Ant-Man delivers a high-stakes, tension-filled adventure in U.S. theaters on July 17, 2015.

The film’s director, Peyton Reed, acknowledges one of the key elements of a heist movie is music. “Christophe Beck is the composer on the movie and one of the things we talked about was how I wanted a recognizable theme for the hero and whether or not that could be done in the year 2015,” says Reed. “But we also wanted something that said ‘heist movie’ with a little bit of jazzy vibe to it and also be really fun because even though the stakes are really high in the movie, it’s fun.”

Beck adds, “For Marvel’s Ant-Man, I wanted to write a score in the grand symphonic tradition of my favorite Super Hero movies, with a sweeping scope and a big, catchy main theme. What makes this score stand out among other Marvel movies, though, is a sneaky sense of fun, since it is, after all, not only a Super Hero movie, but also a heist comedy.”

The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Marvel’s Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket, Bobby Cannavale as Paxton, Michael Peña as Luis, Tip “T.I.” Harris as Dave, Wood Harris as Gale, Judy Greer as Maggie, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, and Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym.

Peyton Reed directs Marvel’s Ant-Man with Kevin Feige, p.g.a. producing and Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Stan Lee  and  Edgar Wright serving as executive producers. The story is by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish and the screenplay is by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish and Adam McKay & Paul Rudd.

Marvel’s Ant-Man original motion picture digital soundtrack will be available at digital retailers on July 17, 2015 and the physical album will be available wherever music is sold on July 31, 2015.
