I took up the challenge of creating a Disney medley story by taking lyrics from Disney songs and mashing them together to make a story. I based mine off a section in World War Z.
In the chapter “Blame”, at the Vostok Station in Antarctica, Breck Scott is a man who played on people’s fears to make millions of dollars. He thinks he is justified in every decision he made, saying he never fully lied and nothing was directly his fault, without regard to people’s livelihood. In his eyes, it is others’ fault if they are “too stupid” to avoid falling for his business.
The music I used, in order of appearance:
- Lion King Be Prepared Instrumental
- Lion King Be Prepared
- The Bells of Notre Dame
- The Elegant Captain Hook
- I’ve Got Friends on the Other Side from The Princess and the Frog
- Pocohantas’ Mine, Mine, Mine
- Hoist the Colours from Pirates of the Carribean: At World’s End
Creating the piece took a lot of time, both in getting the original music and editing it all together. Finding what exact lyrics I wanted was probably the toughest part. I ended up Googling “evil Disney character songs” and jumped around a bunch until I had a rough idea of how I was going to execute my vision. If I had unlimited time I could have kept this going, especially to do multiple different stories and styles!
