I didn't know where to post this - so I'm doing it here (please move it to where it's supposed to be if need be!), sorry if it's the wrong place...
Ok here goes: When I went to see the movie Beauty & the Beast I remember seeing a teaser (preview) for a new Disney movie called The Lion King, all they showed at this point was the animals all going toward the cliff, and the lion cub being lifted up, music was kind of tribal, drums/percussion, and then coming soon. Nothing unusual there, but I remember that the ad said music by Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson, I thought cool, that's going to be interesting. So I was shocked when the movie did come out and music was by Elton John (love him!) and Tim Rice.
Does anyone else remember that Quincy Jones & Michael Jackson were supposed to do the music?
I assume Jackson was taken off of the project due to the allegations that were thrust upon him at the time. I guess Disney decided it wouldn't be good to have someone with such allegations, working on a children's film. Anyone remember, or am I crazier than I think? Thanks!
