Difficult – not to say impossible – to pass after the songs of the classic Disney animation. However, this live Aladdin succeeds his bet and Will Smith, without overshadowing the vocal genius of Robin Williams and Richard Darbois, delivers a flawless score, with his own touch Fresh Prince. Dubbed in French version by a solid Anthony Kavanagh, the star revisits the cult tubes and paintings that are I am your best friend, Arabian Nights or Prince Ali, whose colorful choreography brings together 250 dancers and 200 extras. Also note: the original song Speak / Speechless, powerful and liberating hymn of Jasmine interpreted by Naomi Scott (VO) and Hiba Tawaji (VF).
A Star Is Born (2018)
$ 400 million in revenue, eight Oscar nominations and the Best Song for Tubing statuette Shallow : for his first realization, Bradley Cooper strikes hard … and sings just. By revisiting the classic A star was born (already brought to the screen in 1937, 1954 and 1976) in the world of country music, he forms with a Lady Gaga without artifice one of the outstanding film couples of the decade . And a major scenic duo, their live performances in the film and then in the various shows and ceremonies that accompanied the career of the feature film bear witness to this.
The Return of Mary Poppins (2018)
Forget the essential (and unpronounceable) Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious of the classic led by Julie Andrews in 1965. With The Return of Mary Poppins, the famous nanny, who resumes service in the guise of Emily Blunt, brings in her bag a dozen new songs signed Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman. Among these pieces, we will note in particular Luminomagifantastic ((Trip a Little Light Fantastic in original version), song and dance number of eight minutes, filmed for two weeks on a set of five levels, and bringing together up to 50 dancers on the screen simultaneously. Did you say magic?
Red Mill ! (2001)
The wings of the Moulin Rouge protect lovers … and conceal a soundtrack as abundant and extravagant as the decor and staging by Baz Luhrmann. After Ballroom Dancing and Romeo + Juliet, the filmmaker concludes his red curtain trilogy by offering Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor the roles (and the sublime song Come what may) of two cursed lovers in the Paris of the Belle Epoque. The grandiloquent revivals are linked, from Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend at Your song Passing by Like a Virgin, The Show Must Go On and Roxanne, with a special mention for the Elephant Love Medley which mixes in 4 minutes the Beatles, Elton John, U2, Phil Collins and David Bowie. Worship.
Alvin and the Chipmunks (2007)
You never listened Bad day, Funkytown or Only you in “helium voice”? Have this experience with the Chipmunks Alvin, Simon and Théodore, three squirrel brothers as blundering as they are good at music. Alongside their adoptive human daddy Jason Lee, they will chain tubes and crazy adventures, to continue in three other episodes mixing real shots and virtual creatures … including Chipettes that will give them wire (microphone) to twist.
