An underrated cut song from an underrated film, 'Snuff Out the Light' is actually rooted in the aborted proto-'Emperor's New Groove' film 'Kingdom of the Sun.' In it, the villain, Yzma (voiced by Eartha Kitt), plots to literally blot out the sun, which she blames for aging her and destroying her beauty
Okay, we're cheating here a little bit. 'Poor Unfortunate Souls' was left in the final film, thankfully, however there was a verse cut out, presumably for time. Virtually everything else is the same, although this scene does shed light on exactly why Ursula was banished by Ariel's father
As mentioned earlier, 'Aladdin' went through a number of rewrites and eliminated some characters entirely. One unfortunate who got the axe was Aladdin's mother, who was seen as somewhat superfluous. However, songwriter Howard Ashman was attached to the character and wrote a touching ballad called 'Proud of Your Boy,' where Aladdin laments his past screw-ups and promises to find some way to make it up to his mother
Mufasa had a song? Why was it cut? Well, perhaps it's a little too...jolly for the stoic, straight-faced King of the Jungle we all grew up with. Still, it's a nice little ditty where Mufasa emphasizes that being the king is something not to be taken lightly, only to be countered by Zazu
'Hercules' was one of the few films made during the Disney Renaissance of the '90s that wasn't structured in a musical format. Most of the songs were sung by a Gospel chorus who also provided backup to Megara's one song 'I Won't Say I'm in Love
As Tony Bancroft reveals in the clip below, this song was supposed to be Mushu's introduction to Mulan but ultimately was cut and replaced by spoken dialogue. Too bad since it had a real catchy beat and a smooth voice ("smoother than ginseng") that may or may not have been Eddie Murphy's, we're not really sure
The creative team of 'Aladdin' had to make numerous changes to the film, including cutting many songs, characters and trimming the plot. Thankfully, several songs that were cut from the film ended up on the special edition DVD
Kim Jong II may have been a brutal, totalitarian dictator, but none of his contemporaries could approach him in terms of sheer strangeness. (Well, maybe Gaddafi.) But Jong II was in a league of his own in terms of weird
The industry, er, holiday known as Christmas dominates not only the last two months of each year, but has also spawned its own genre of film. There are good holiday flicks (‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation’), mediocre ones ('Jingle All the Way') and ones so awful, we'd rather drink expired egg nog than be forced to sit through them ('Christmas With the Kranks'). And then there are the films set during C
Black Friday is not a casual shopping day, but rather it is the closet thing civilians will ever get to tasting real combat. As such, one should treat it like a military mission, with objectives, casualties and above all, strategies
Few monsters have appeared more on TV and film than Dracula. The character, who first appeared in Bram Stoker's novel way back in 1897, has long lapsed into the public domain. Thus, pretty much anyone can do whatever they want with The Count.
