“Happily Ever After”, the Magic Kingdom‘s new nighttime fireworks spectacular, is right around the corner, and Disney has just released a video that delves into the creative process that guided the development of the score.
The video is below; as it is focused on the show’s music it is a must watch. For those who are unable to view it right this moment, here are some highlights:
- A 75-piece orchestra recorded the score at Air Studios is London.
- Individual sections of the music were inspired by the emotional undertones of the story, each with a name which represents a portion of the characters’ journey, such as “adversity” or “friends”.
- Although written at different times, and by separate composers, the production team worked to blend each section together to create one continuous piece of music.
- The music is paired with the visual elements of the show, with the intent to make the audience feel the same emotions the heroes of the spectacle will be experiencing.
