"You're Welcome" Music Video From The "Moana" Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Debuts Today On VEVO

“You’re Welcome” Music Video From The “Moana” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Debuts Today On VEVO

Oscar®-nominated, Tony®-, Emmy®- and Grammy®-winning songwriter/composer Lin-Manuel Miranda and Hollywood Records artist Jordan Fisher are featured in the music video for “You’re Welcome.” Shot on location in New York City and London, the clip was directed by Declan Whitebloom (James Blunt, Taylor Swift, Leona Lewis, One Direction). The video debuted on VEVO today and can be seen HERE.

Written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and performed by Dwayne Johnson in the film, “You’re Welcome” showcases the colorful personality of the demigod Maui. Hollywood Records artist Jordan Fisher teamed up with Miranda for the end-credit version of the track. After a breakout performance in the Emmy Award-winning production of Grease: Live, Jordan Fisher released his debut single last year, “All About Us,” which soared to the top of the Billboard Pop charts. Fisher, who opened for Alicia Keys at last year’s Apple Music Festival, just wrapped his run in the Broadway cast of “Hamilton.” Fisher is set to release his full-length album later this year.

Sixteen weeks after its release, the Moana soundtrack has spent 12 weeks in the Billboard 200’s Top 10, and has been certified gold by the R.I.A.A. The soundtrack is No. 5 this week on the Billboard 200 chart. Additionally, Moana videos have exceeded 500 million views worldwide.

Last week, Disney’s Moana crossed the $600 million mark at the global box office. Moana was nominated for two Oscars and two Golden Globes, including Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (“How Far I’ll Go”). 

The in-home release of “Moana” is currently available for purchase on Blu-ray 3D™, Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD/3D. The release is packaged with fun-filled extras showcasing an all-new mini-movie, the charismatic cast, famed filmmakers, dynamic musical team, the beautiful people and cultures of the Pacific Islands, a deleted song, deleted scenes, and more! To learn more, please visit Movies.Disney.com/Moana.

Disney*Pixar’s “Cars 3” Fuels Up For Nationwide Tour

Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” is hitting the road this month with Road to the Races, a nationwide tour inviting fans of #95 to gear up for the upcoming big-screen release. Life-size, character look-alikes of five-time Piston-Cup champion Lightning McQueen, tech-savvy trainer Cruz Ramirez and the sleek next-gen racer Jackson Storm will be rolling into 27 cities coast to coast to celebrate the new movie, which opens June 16, 2017.

The roster of cities includes Miami, Dallas, Chicago, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Denver and Los Angeles, among others—the full list is available at CARS3tour.com. The “Road to the Races” nationwide tour wraps up in California with a visit to NASCAR at Sonoma at the Sonoma Raceway June 24-25, 2017, and the life-size character cars will also roll onto the red carpet for the “Cars 3” world premiere on Saturday, June 10, 2017.

A host of sponsors have signed on to support the tour, which includes a variety of activities.

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Available Today, March 10

Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Available Today, March 10

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Available Today, March 10

Available today wherever music is sold and streamed, the “Beauty and the Beast” original motion picture soundtrack features an unforgettable score from eight-time Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken along with new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and two-time Academy Award® winner Howard Ashman. Also included are three new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice.

The story and characters audiences know and love come to spectacular life in Disney’s live-action adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast,” a stunning, cinematic event celebrating one of the most beloved tales ever told. Directed by Bill Condon from a screenplay by Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spiliotopoulos based on the 1991 animated film, “Beauty and the Beast” stars: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Audra McDonald with Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson. “Beauty and the Beast” opens in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.

From early on, one of Condon’s key objectives was to build upon the story from the animated classic, and the Oscar-winning director realized music could play a significant role in making that happen. By finding interesting variations on beloved songs like “Be Our Guest” and “Gaston” and with the addition of new songs, music could help push the story forward while elevating its emotional content at the same time.

New songs featured in the film and included on the soundtrack are: “Evermore,” a soaring ballad performed by the Beast (Dan Stevens); the heartwarming “Days in the Sun,” sung by Belle (Emma Watson), the Beast and the castle’s enchanted staff; and “How Does a Moment Last Forever,” sung by Maurice (Kevin Kline) and in a reprise, by Belle.

The soundtrack also features three brand new recordings including the duet “Beauty and the Beast” by GRAMMY® nominated and multi-platinum selling artist Ariana Grande and 10-time GRAMMY, Oscar®-winning and multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/musician John Legend. The iconic song originally recorded by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson, features Alan Menken’s haunting melody and Howard Ashman’s memorable lyrics, and, upon its release in 1991, went on to receive an Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and GRAMMY Award. The music video for “Breeauty and the Beast” was directed by Dave Meyers (P!nk’s “Just Like Fire,”  Katy Perry’s “Firework”) and can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axySrE0Kg6k.

In addition, five-time GRAMMY winning and best-selling recording artist Celine Dion performs “How Does A Moment Last Forever” and multi-platinum international recording artist and songwriter Josh Groban performed the third track, “Evermore.”

TheBeauty and the Beast” original motion picture soundtrack features 19 tracks and is available wherever music is sold and streamed (http://disneymusic.co/BeautySndtrkP, http://disneymusic.co/BeautySndtrk, http://disneymusic.co/BeautySndtrkWS). The Beauty and the Beast two-disc deluxe edition and the digital deluxe edition soundtrack, which are also available March 10, feature additional tracks including score, demos and outtakes.

Swarovski Brings Crystal Enchantment To Disney’s Spectacular New Beauty And The Beast

Swarovski Brings Crystal Enchantment To Disney's Spectacular New Beauty And The Beast

Swarovski Brings Crystal Enchantment To Disney’s Spectacular New Beauty And The Beast

Celebrating one of the most beloved tales ever told, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast will hold its World Premiere in Los Angeles on March 2, in association with Swarovski. Beauty and the Beast (in cinemas March 17) is set to be a stunning cinematic event sparkling with thousands of Swarovski crystals, and this empowering new adaptation has inspired a bold and beautiful new jewelry line by Atelier Swarovski.

Swarovski manufactured the glass bell jar, based on Disney’s original design, and provided the 2,160 crystals used on Academy Award winning costume designer Jacqueline Durran’s design for Belle’s iconic yellow dress. Swarovski crystals were used in the opening scene on the dress worn by Madame de Garderobe, the Prince and Maestro Cadenza’s costumes and the crystal house also supplied vintage jewelry.

Jacqueline Durran commented: “Swarovski crystals were an important addition to the Prince’s costume and Belle’s yellow dress. For the Prince, crystals were a key element in recreating an 18th century coat – for the character to be wearing a coat covered with sparkling stones seemed the perfect way to represent his opulence. For Belle, the crystals were part of Garderobe’s finishing touch to the yellow gown, when added to the dress’s golden print they provided the final magical flourish.”

Academy Award-nominated set decorator Katie Spencer flew to Swarovski’s headquarters in the Austrian Tyrol to work with the company’s master cutters to manufacture the Bell Jar, based on Disney’s original design. The delicate frozen etching effect was carried out by an artisan craftsman in London. Decorating the top of its ornate dome is a bespoke-cut crystal finial shining with 543 facets. Further crystal embellishment to the set includes several music boxes made by Maurice, Belle’s father.

Katie Spencer commented: “Working with Swarovski was an incredible experience. Their crystals bring that extra touch of magic, especially to the beautiful centerpiece that is the Bell Jar. Swarovski’s technical team in Austria were so passionate, and their expert craftsmanship and dedication really shine through in the end result.”

The Atelier Swarovski collection will be available in stores and online from February 2017.

Back By Popular Demand Halloween At The Hollywood Bowl: ‘DISNEY IN CONCERT TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS’

Back By Popular Demand Halloween At The Hollywood Bowl: 'DISNEY IN CONCERT TIM BURTON'S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS'

Back By Popular Demand Halloween At The Hollywood Bowl: ‘DISNEY IN CONCERT TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS’

THIS IS HALLOWEEN: Los Angeles’ reigning Pumpkin King, Danny Elfman, will return to the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, October 29 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, October 30 at 6:30 pm performing his role of Jack Skellington singing live to film for a very special screening of Disney’s timeless holiday classic, “TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.” Elfman will be joined by other original cast members including Catherine O’Hara (Sally), Ken Page (Oogie Boogie) and Paul Reubens (Lock). Tickets go on sale Friday, September 9 at 10:00am via all Ticketmaster outlets. To purchase by phone call (800) 745-3000 or online at www.Ticketmaster.com

Danny Elfman, who wrote the film’s songs (music and lyrics), composed its original score and was the original singing voice of Jack Skellington says, “Being able to perform ‘Nightmare’ live last year, in synch to the movie with a full orchestra was such a thrill. But having Catherine O’Hara, Ken Page and Paul Reubens to perform with me really made it a unique and magical experience. I’m happy to bring it to our amazing Los Angeles audience one more time.”

Catherine O’Hara, the original voice of Sally adds, “I’m proud to once again be part of such a fun evening celebrating Danny’s musical genius.”

The original voice of Oogie Boogie, Ken Page says, “There is nothing that I can compare with stepping out onto the Hollywood Bowl stage to a sold out house with the great LA musicians playing Danny Elfman’s brilliant score of THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS and happily recreating OOGIE BOOGIE’S song ‘LIVE’… except doing it again!”

Paul Reubens adds, “The thrill from last Halloween of being onstage at the Hollywood Bowl singing with Catherine O’Hara and Danny Elfman has lasted a whole year! Of course I’m back!”

A cast of singers and special guest artists will be performing the film’s acclaimed songs live.  Conductor John Mauceri, Founding Director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, will once again be leading the full orchestra and choir performing the film’s classic score and songs live to picture.

Last year’s NIGHTMARE AT THE BOWL was named “#1 Concert of 2015” by the Orange County Register beating out such shows as The Foo Fighters, Janet Jackson, Garth Brooks, Shania Twain, Willie Nelson, Neil Young and The Rolling Stones.

Not since Elfman’s iconic Oingo Boingo Halloween concerts have his fans been offered such a holiday treat.

HALLOWEEN AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL- TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS- IN CONCERT LIVE TO FILM will transform this legendary venue into Halloween Town with special pre-show activities including an audience participation costume contest, unique photo opportunities and trick-or-treating stations. Tim Burton-inspired costumes are encouraged.

The concert is produced by Laura Engel & Richard Kraft, Tim Fox & Alison Ahart Williams and Andrew Hewitt & Bill Silva Presents, in association with Disney Concerts, the team that recently presented the highly-acclaimed DISNEY’S THE LITTLE MERMAID IN CONCERT AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL starring Sara Bareilles and Rebel Wilson.

First released in 1993, Tim Burton’s THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS was directed by Henry Selick (JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH), and based on a story and characters by Tim Burton. The film follows the earnest-but-misguided adventures of Jack Skellington, Halloween Town’s beloved Pumpkin King, as he attempts to take over the Christmas holiday. Against the advice of Sally, a lonely rag doll who has feelings for him, Jack enlists three mischievous trick-or-treaters – Lock, Shock, and Barrel – to help him kidnap Santa Claus. The film is rated “PG”.

DISNEY IN CONCERT TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS 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, 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.

All acts and ticket prices subject to change without notice.

Star Wars Superfans #GoRogue to Reveal New Toy Line in Glorious Stop Motion Animation!

A team of Star Wars superfans today revealed the new toy line for the highly anticipated “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” movie via a series of fan-made animated shorts launching on the Star Wars YouTube channel.

“These fan-created shorts are a tribute to the incredible content that the Star Wars community posts online every day,” said Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “The Go Rogue campaign was designed with Star Wars fans in mind – we want them to be front and center in the run up to ‘Rogue One’ by imagining and creating their own Rogue Stories.”

When Star Wars news breaks, many fans worldwide react by sharing their own videos online. According to new research1, fans posted over 838,000 pieces of Star Wars-related content on YouTube in the past year alone, which is more than 2,296 per day and nearly 96 per hour. Star Wars fan-generated content is also incredibly popular, accruing more than 16.3 billion views in the last year – equivalent to everyone in the world viewing at least two fan-created videos.

The fan-created shorts showcasing the new line of “Rogue One” toys for the first time launches on the Star Wars YouTube channel today, with new installments rolling out through September. The team was led by James DeJulio at Tongal, and the series was written by Kevin Ulrich and brought to life by stop-motion animators and directors Dan MacKenzie and Tucker Barrie. The stories follow the adventures of “Rogue One” toys from Hasbro, LEGO, FUNKO, JAKKS Pacific, Mattel and Disney Store as they try to track down the building instructions to the LEGO Star Wars Death Star set which have been misplaced by the Empire.

“I’ve been a Star Wars fan my whole life so this is a dream project,” says James DeJulio, co-founder of Tongal. “It’s been amazing to see what an inspiration Star Wars has been to so many members of our creative community, whether that’s coming up with their own Star Wars storylines, or playing out scenes with Star Wars toys at home with their kids. I’m excited to share this first ‘Rogue Story’ with the world and hope it inspires other fans to share theirs.”

Fans can pre-order a handful of select items seen in the “Rogue Stories” beginning September 2 at mass retailers, Disney Store locations and disneystore.com. The full range of new “Rogue One” and Star Wars products will be available globally starting on September 30. Join the global #GoRogue conversation on social.
