Remember the time when we used to sing along with our favorite classic Disney songs? We know the feeling! After all, Disney songs are catchy and irresistible. While many people are familiar with the songs popularized by Disney, some are unfamiliar which movie they came from. Check out the list of top Disney musicals and vote for your favorite!
Mary Poppins Returns is a fantasy musical movie which is based on P. L. Travers' Mary Poppins book series. It is also the sequel to the movie, Mary Poppins in 1964. This follows the story of a nanny who has magical skills as she tries to help children during a difficult time in their lives.
Did you know that integrating musicals in movies was not taken seriously before the '50s? We can all agree that having song productions as part of a film's storyline is a grand endeavor. Who isn't entertained by those films that we all grew up watching and singing along with at the same time? Even before the age of millennials, singing in movies have been a staple of entertainment. Here, we can always cite films like 1971's Jesus Christ Superstar or better yet, 1985's Les Misérables. These are all familiar household classics that are always referenced when it comes to a specific type of Hollywood film variant. However, musicals were not even considered proper art forms in its ancient days. During the heyday of ancient Greek civilization and even during the Rennaissance in Europe, musicals were often used in retelling religious texts. It was not until stage productions like 1957's West Side Story that the audience felt like musicals were really that entertaining. Finally, this was the beginning of the abrupt transition of musicals into movies. As we know, in recent years, movie musicals that use pop music like the 'Pitch Perfect' phenomenon have been more prominent and this trend has not seemed to slow down to this day.
For the younger generations who have been under the spell of Disney musicals, these types of films are a bit more common. 'Let it Go' is a song that endeared lots of moviegoers, both old and young via Disney's Frozen from 13. Disney has for sure made use of the fame of musical movies. Frozen has grossed a total of more than $1 billion worldwide and how much of its success is caused by the movie's musical nature? No one can possibly estimate that but what is for sure is that music gives movies a lot of life.
