The Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs soundtrack will be reissued on red vinyl and will mark the movie’s 85th anniversary. Tracks including “Heigh-Ho” and “Someday My Prince Will Come” will feature on the special release.
Bambi, which is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year, will be issued on green vinyl, with the likes of “Little April shower” and “Love Is Song” appearing on the record.

Last year, a more recent Disney movie, the award-winning 2020 film Soul, inspired a new exhibition celebrating the world of American jazz. The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure premiered at the EPCOT Center in Disney World, Florida, before moving to New Orleans, Kansas City, and Harlem, New York.
Meanwhile, back in 2019, the Disney Music Group launched a new podcast series called For Scores. It featured interviews with film and television composers from Disney, Marvel Studios, Pixar, Lucasfilm, 20th Century Fox, and more breaking down the scores and soundtracks to some iconic movies.
