  1. I dont like when they do this. I love RDjs work, but it isnt legendary Disney work. They just bought the company, and recently!

    Marvel Legend, absolutely, no doubt. Disney Legend? Nope.

  2. I grew up with Hans Zimmer another friend like Alan Menken. I can’t wait to see him being elected. He also composed Interstellar that was a great movie.
