Exclusive albums and autographs are coming to Disney Music Emporium at D23 Expo!
Known for its exclusive items online, the Disney Music Emporium is coming to D23 Expo 2017 and bringing all their goodies with them – and then some. With a pop-up shop in the show floor, DME is bringing some hard-to-find collectible albums, many of which will be introduced for the first time at the Expo. The Moana songs will be released on picture disc at D23 and Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 will be released on an actual cassette! The songs of the recent live version of Beauty and the Beast will be pressed onto blue vinyl. And for you Descendants fans, the soundtrack for Descendants 2 will be released FIRST at D23 Expo 2017.
Exclusive to the Disney Music Emporium and being released at D23 will be the soundtracks to all four of the Netflix Marvel series. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist will all have albums available on the show floor. And of course there will be other items available including lithographs and posters.
I have to admit to being the most excited about the release of the attraction soundtracks for Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean. I wonder if they’ll have the original narration of those old albums from when I was a kid? I hope so. Also, the two disc set for The Legacy Collection: Robin Hood sounds like it will be amazing. According to the press release, it “features the songs and score from the film on Disc 1, plus previously unreleased demos, and bonus tracks performed by Louis Prima on Disc 2. Also included are extensive liner notes by Disney historian and writer Paula Sigman-Lowery.” Not to mention a beautiful cover by Walt Disney Animation Studios visual development artist Lorelay Bove.
And if that weren’t enough, various artists, singers, and composers will be on-hand for autographs throughout the Expo. Lorelay will be there to sign albums and lithographs of the Robin Hood set. Composers Michael Giacchino (Rogue One, Inside Out, and UP) and Tyler Bates (score for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 1 and 2) will be there. And signing autographs for fans will be Auli’i Cravalho of Moana fame, Dove Cameron, and Sofia Carson just to name a few!
Disney Music Emporium always has a great line up of items and artists for fans of Disney music and who couldn’t love all the music that makes Disney great? Schedules for artist signings are usually available at the DME pavilion so be sure to find out when your favorites are coming and be sure to be there. Buying select products at the Expo will also get you a wristband to secure a place in line for autographs! Who are you looking forward to seeing?
