DID YOU KNOW?

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.
