Kathryn Beaumont, the voice of Alice in the 1951 movie, returned to Disney in 1982 to record additional dialogue for the Alice in Wonderland ride in Disneyland when it was being remodeled. The second photo is of her with John Debney who composed new music for the ride and oversaw the recording of the new soundtrack.
Never saw the film, but really liked the score. John Debney is one of my favorite composers, and I have yet to hear a severely disappointing score from him. Therefore the music for “Evan Almighty” was a mixture of grandiose, “homey”, and comedic (as expected), but the grandiose aspect was obviously the most frequent. With that said, the official album art shouldn’t even be looked at when listening to this fantastic score; which is why I made an alternative - like the undeserving cover of the “inspired by” soundtack, but with a more “ancient” feel - I think it’s appropriate for the music.
I was pleasantly surprised how much of the old 1967 themes found their way into the new film’s score, even using the original opening title, but one thing I particularly love is how Trust in Me became a theme for the devastating power of fire.
“The Princess Diaries Waltz,” composed by John Debney -
Every time I hear this song, I feel like a princess, like the princess I am as a daughter of God. Inside every girl is a princess (and inside every boy is a prince) just waiting to be discovered and loved by the very people in which such royalty lies. We are His beautiful roses, His precious children. Love yourselves, girls, and love everyone around you; remember, they are special, too, and they, like you, have the potential to do great and wonderful things in the name of our Father in heaven.
