Walt Disney Records will release the soundtrack for the Walt Disney Animation Studios film "Wreck-It Ralph" on Oct. 30, 2012, which features four new songs and a score by composer Henry Jackman ("Winnie the Pooh," "X-Men: First Class"). Owl City contributes the end-credit song "When Can I See You Again?" Directed by Rich Moore, produced by Clark Spencer and featuring the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch, "Wreck-It Ralph" crashes into theatres on Nov. 2, 2012.
The story of an arcade-game bad guy who embarks on a quest to prove he’s really a good guy, “Wreck-It Ralph” journeys through wildly diverse arcade-game worlds, including the ‘80s-era, 8-bit video-game world of Fix-It Felix, Jr., the ultra-modern first-person shooter game Hero’s Duty and the candy-coated cart-racing game Sugar Rush. Helping to differentiate these worlds from one another are unique cinematography, animation, effects and music. “Music is another way to set the stage and make these worlds completely different,” said producer Clark Spencer.
Karen O has written an original song which will be featured in the end credits to Disney's highly anticipated movie, Frankenweenie, directed by Tim Burton. “Strange Love” is included on Frankenweenie Unleashed!, a 14-track compilation of music from and inspired by the film.

The Disney Blog talks to composer Russell Brower, the man responsible for much of the music heard throughout Epcot's Future World.
Mark Morton, the soundtracks examiner at Examiner.com, reviews the new soundtrack from Brave, opening this Friday.
Disney•Pixar’s epic fantasy adventure “Brave” harnesses the magic of ancient Scotland, weaving the rich natural setting throughout the story and bringing it to life with sophisticated filmmaking and extraordinary performances. But it’s the music of “Brave” that ties it all together, elevating the authenticity with a fresh and contemporary approach to Oscar®-nominated composer Patrick Doyle’s score, as well as two original songs performed by lauded Scottish Gaelic singer Julie Fowlis. A third original song plays during the film’s epilogue and is performed by UK singing sensation Birdy with British folk rock band Mumford & Sons. Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, “Brave” hits theatres on June 22, 2012. The film’s soundtrack from Walt Disney Records will be available June 19, 2012.

Out now digitally on Ghostlight Records, the physical release of the album is set for May 15th, 2012. The physical release will feature three special bonus tracks including an exclusive version of “Santa Fe” performed by lead Jeremy Jordan accompanied by Alan Menken on piano. The full track listing is available by clicking below.
The marquees of Disney’s New Amsterdam Theatre, home of the musical Mary Poppins, along with the Minskoff and Nederlander Theatres, which house Disney Theatrical Productions’ The Lion King and Newsies, will dim this evening at 7:01 in memory of legendary songwriter Robert Sherman, who died yesterday in London at 86.
The same tribute will be paid tonight at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton, WI where the Mary Poppins national tour is playing and tomorrow’s performance of Mary Poppins in Perth, Australia will be dedicated to Sherman.

Just got the 2012 Hollywood Bowl mailer listing this year's shows and wanted to give an early heads up about a show that might be of interest to Disney/Pixar fans.
The weekend of August 3, 4 & 5 there will be a show titled "Pixar in Concert". Here is how the show is described in the flyer:
"From the Toy Story Trilogy to The Incredibles and Up, Pixar has forever changed filmmaking and given audiences of all ages some of the most beloved characters in cinematic history. Now, for the first time ever, the Hollywood Bowl presents "Pixar in Concert", with visually stunning clips and memorable scores from each of Pixar's movies (including it's latest release, Brave), peformed live by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra."
No other details are given at this time, they usually put out more details on the shows later. I suspect that they will eventually announce some special guests or special character appearances.
At this time, only subscription series tickets are available for purchase. Tickets for individual shows will go on sale later. Thankfully, this year the Disney related Bowl show does not conflict with the D23 event, as the Fantasia show did last year. This one is the weekend before the D23 Destination D August event.
