This week, the Mouse Lounge gets glittered and gowned with the Disney Princesses!
In “Behind the Mickey Bar”, Liana and I sit down and discuss the phenomenon that is the Disney Princess franchise.
In From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record. From April 1946, during the first re-release to theaters of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, we hear a radio dramatization of the film, with many from the original cast. This is truly a brilliant time capsule of post war in home entertainment with a wonderful performance by the still very young Adriana Casselotti as Snow White.
From the Walt Disney Archives: Let’s go back in time and back again, and hear for ourselves the difference sixty years can make as we listen to “Someday My Prince Will Come” from Cinderella and the Seven Dwarfs, and “Almost There” from The Princess and the Frog. Two princesses, two very different ways of living.
Each show we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West. This week travel through a land of enchantment and stilted narration no teenager could ever do justice on the Storybookland Canal Boats.
We close the show with a pair of unexpected Princess tracks. The first is If You Can Dream, the first song that was originally written and recorded specifically for the Disney Princess franchise. It was first released on the album Disney Princess: The Ultimate Song Collection.
The song is sung from the point of view of the first eight official Disney Princesses (though only seven of them actually sing). It has been featured on several Disney music CDs, and its music video is present on nearly every Disney Princess DVD, as either an extra or a Sing-Along, and has been shown numerous times on the Disney Channel. To this day the song still plays on the official Disney Princess website.
Finally, the incomparable Pogo, best known for spinning creative melodies of his own sampling Disney films, has released a new track with the Disney Princesses. Here now, listen to Bloom… and be sure to log into the multimedia section of Mouselounge.com to watch the extraordinary video!
