Disney Ranked Most Intimate Brand among Millennials, According to MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2017 Report

Disney Ranked Most Intimate Brand among Millennials, According to MBLM's Brand Intimacy 2017 Report

Disney Ranked Most Intimate Brand among Millennials, According to MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2017 Report

Disney ranked the most intimate brand among millennials, according to MBLM’s Brand Intimacy 2017 Report, which is the largest study of brands based on emotions. Brand intimacy is defined as a new paradigm that leverages and strengthens the emotional bonds between a person and a brand.

“Disney resonates with this age group because they grew up with the brand. It has kept up with their changing interests and now includes popular franchises like Star Wars and Marvel. Disney is also a mainstay for young families,” stated Mario Natarelli, MBLM’s managing partner. “Interestingly, five out of the top 10 brands for millennials are in the media & entertainment industry, which we believe reflects the prevailing mood of escapism and the need for respite.”

Following Disney, Amazon and Netflix ranked as the second and third most intimate brands for millennials. Comparatively, in MBLM’s 2015 report, Amazon placed first, followed by Apple and PlayStation.

The other brands that round out the top 10 are: Apple, Nintendo, Target, Chevrolet, Xbox, Google and YouTube.

The Brand Intimacy 2017 Report analyzes the responses of 6,000 consumers and 54,000 brand evaluations in the U.S., Mexico and UAE. The full report will be released on January 18, 2017.

Walt Disney Records: The Legacy Collection Complete Box Set

Walt Disney Records: The Legacy Collection Complete Box Set

This CD series combines great songs, background scores and rare recordings from over a half-century of animation classics–plus music from Disneyland® Park. In addition to remastered tracks, each album in Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection Box Set comes in its own hardcover book, filled with art treasures, exclusive essays, and new illustrations by Lorelay Bove, a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios (“Tangled”, “Winnie the Pooh”, “Wreck-It Ralph”). Bove was recently named one of ’10 Animators to Watch’ by Variety (March 3, 2015) and her art can be seen in the hardcover book, Lovely: Ladies of Animation: The Art of Lorelay Bove, Brittney Lee, Claire Keane, Lisa Keene, Victoria Ying and Helen Chen.

Designed for display, all 12 albums are presented in a specially fitted collectors’ slipcase. The 28-disc Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection Box Set contains over 130 songs; 270 instrumentals; 75 “Lost Chords” deleted songs and demos; and much more–totaling over 25 hours of matchless entertainment for all ages.

The 12 albums in the new box set are as follows:

The Lion King
The Oscar® and Grammy®-winning songs by Elton John and score by Hans Zimmer plus 30 minutes of expanded underscore and Lost Chords demos not used in the film.

Mary Poppins
Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke in an artistic triumph of Walt Disney and the Sherman Brothers, including the debut new recording of the lost song, “The Eyes of Love.” Album includes the Sherman Brothers’ demos of the film’s songs and is the largest collection of Lost Chords original demos and new versions in the entire series.

Sleeping Beauty
The magnificent music of Tchaikovsky is transformed into one of Disney’s most dramatic and memorable scores, plus special versions from vinyl record master tracks.

The Little Mermaid
Howard Ashman and Alan Menken’s multi-award-winning music and songs with the original demo recordings and previously unreleased background score.

Fantasia
Leopold Stokowski’s complete FantaSound score from the innovative film, the complete digital score conducted by Irwin Kostal plus bonus tracks by Sterling Holloway.

Pinocchio
One of the most brilliant scores in movie history—it introduced “When You Wish Upon a Star”—plus six new-to-CD Mickey Mouse Club songs sung by Jiminy Cricket (Cliff Edwards).

Cinderella
The Oscar®-nominated score and all the songs from the animated classic, plus The Lost Chords, featuring 7 original demos and new versions.

Toy Story
Randy Newman’s hit songs and score from the Disney/Pixar’s landmark animated feature, as well as bonus tracks and three never-before-released background tracks.

Pocahontas
Majestic music of Alan Menken, lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (“Wicked”) plus songs that were deleted from the finished score and original demos sung by Menken himself.

Lady and the Tramp
An eagerly requested soundtrack in the series showcasing the vocal and songwriting genius of Peggy Lee, plus bonus track and rare demos.

The Aristocats
From the Disney film favorite comes the famous score, including songs by the Sherman Brothers, the voices of Phil Harris and Maurice Chevallier. This is the first time the original soundtrack has been available in its entirety.

Disneyland
Beginning with the recordings from the opening day of Disneyland in 1955, the collection guides the listener down Main Street U.S.A., through the greatest attractions, shows and lands that exist today and those that are a happy memory.

The release of Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection Box Set marks the first time such a massive body of musical and visual masterworks have been contained in a single package.

Walt Disney Records The Legacy Collection Box Set 12-album, 28-disc set is now available at disneymusicemporium.com.  For more information on the Disney Music Emporium, please visit disneymusicemporium.com

Disney Donates $1.5 Million To Feeding America To Help Inspire Healthier Generations And Promote Nationwide Access To More Nutritious Foods

Disney Donates $1.5 Million To Feeding America To Help Inspire Healthier Generations And Promote Nationwide Access To More Nutritious Foods

Disney Donates $1.5 Million To Feeding America To Help Inspire Healthier Generations And Promote Nationwide Access To More Nutritious Foods

Feeding America, the nation’s leading hunger-relief organization, salutes The Walt Disney Company for its $1.5 million donation, the vast majority of which will provide grants to 60 food banks across the nation to expand their local fresh produce sourcing and distribution programs. The donation will be announced on ABC’s “The Chew” today at 1:00 p.m. ET/12:00 p.m. CT/PT.

The ABC daytime series will also feature a segment about teenager Katie Stagliano, who founded Katie’s Krops, a youth-based garden initiative. During the segment, Katie will talk about how her childhood dream of helping the hungry has grown into 83 vegetable gardens tended by youth across the country, producing food for underserved children and families.

Disney’s support will help strengthen local produce sourcing programs in Feeding America member food banks across the country, ensure that food banks can handle larger amounts of fresh produce, and galvanize support from the produce industry and the public.

Increasing access to nutritious foods and engaging audiences to take action is a part of Disney Magic of Healthy Living’s long-standing commitment to creating healthier generations and promoting healthy lifestyles. Disney’s support of Feeding America helps the organization serve more than 12 million children each year.

In addition, Disney | ABC developed special TV spots to inspire communities to envision a future where kids and families have access to nutritious food. The spots—set to air throughout November and December on Disney Channel, Disney XD, ABC and ABC Family— encourage supporters to share the joy through single acts of kindness that can change the world.

“We are delighted that Disney is deepening its commitment to support Feeding America by helping to bring much-needed fresh fruits and vegetables to people facing hunger throughout our nation,” said Diana Aviv, CEO of Feeding America. “Together, along with the public’s support, our food bank network will be able to supply additional healthy fresh produce to help nourish kids and families in need.”

To find out more information and about volunteer opportunities at your local Feeding America food bank, visit FeedingAmerica.org/BeInspired. For more information about Disney’s commitment to helping to create healthier generations by increasing access to nutritious food, click here.
