BWW TV: Alan Menken Joins Disney Leading Ladies For A Trip Down Memory Lane

In honor of its 30th anniversary, two-time Academy Award®-winner (Best Original Score and Best Original Song "Under the Sea," 1989) "The Little Mermaid," dives into the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection with all-new bonus features and a sing-along mode.

As part of the bonus features, the leading ladies of Disney came together for a conversation from the man behind the songs, Alan Menken. From THE VOICE of a mermaid to the tunes of a muse, the music of Alan Menken has scored the soundtrack for some of Disney's most iconic leading ladies. Join Alan, Jodi Benson (Ariel), Paige O'Hara (Belle), Judy Kuhn (Pocahontas Singing Voice), Lillias White (Calliope) and Donna Murphy (Mother Gothel) as we celebrate the music of their films in honor of THE ONE that started it all ...
