Live-Action Film Musical - 2007

Happy Working Song
Alan's thoughts
Just when I thought my career at Disney Animation was over, along came this perfect conceit for a combination animation / live-action musical.

The idea of an animated ingénue finding herself in modern-day New York City was a perfect way to resurrect musical styles from all the Disney eras in one score. Of course, I was already the poster boy for one of those eras and years were spent trying to find other writers to do their “Alan Menken” pastiche. That made it so satisfying when Kevin Lima met with me and asked if I would write this score.
