For our latest playlist we decided to shift our focus to the world of animation! We tasked the team to fill a new playlist with their favourite songs and scores from animated films, and, of course, they didn’t disappoint!
The playlist is brimming with classics from the likes of Disney hits such as ‘Go the Disance’ from Hercules, The Lion King’s ‘Circle of Life’, and ‘Reflection’ from Mulan. Other films that grace our playlist include Coco, Kubo and the Two Strings, Oliver and Company, Brother Bear, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and lots more!
The playlist currently clocks in at 2 hours 45 minutes, but we’re offering you the opportunity to add 3 of your favourites to this playlist! Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments below, or fire them over to us on Twitter and we’ll add them in!
Disney have cast Chinese actress Liu Yifei in the title role of their latest film to get the live-action treatment, ‘Mulan’. Yifei is a successful model, singer, and actress who has appeared in films such as ‘The Forbidden Kingdom’ alongide Jackie Chan and Jet Li, ‘Ip Man 3’, and has also appeared in ‘Once Upon a Time’.
Niki Caro (‘The Zookeeper’s Wife’) will helm this live-action remake of the story about young woman who disguises herself as a man to fight against an invading army, to save her elderly father from conscription. Caro has previously said that there are currently no plans to include any of the songs from the original 1998 animation, much to the dismay of the internet!
A casting call from earlier this year also seemingly confirmed there would be no Li Shang in this remake, and instead he would be replaced by a character called Chen Honghui.
Disney have also said we can expect more members of the cast to be announced in the coming weeks.
‘Mulan’ is set to hit cinemas in 2019.
