Who doesn't love the "Beauty and the Beast" score? Or "The Little Mermaid" for that matter? Well, they're all created by the great Alan Menken!
I recently had a wonderful opportunity to sit down with him for the movie "Enchanted."
We talked about:
*** His involvement with the movie
*** His 1950s musical inspiration
*** I SANG WITH HIM...BADLY I MAY ADD...
Here it is, have fun!

Amy Adams is a very interesting actress! She already has built a very impressive array of roles since her Oscar-nominated turn in "Junebug."
Now, she's the heart of the film, "Enchanted." I think a much lesser actress would not have given the role the heart that it truly needed.
I sat down with Miss Amy for the film, and we talked about:
*** Her inspiration
*** What made her want to do the film
*** The moral of the story
Here it is! HAVE FUN!

Walt Disney Pictures ransacked their own vault and came up with a truly original film! By deconstructing their old classics to reconstruct the fairy-tale genre, “Enchanted” lives up to its name – it’s simply enchanting.
