    Composer Menken expands role at Disney
    Reuters 3/1/06

    LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Composer Alan Menken, an eight-time Oscar winner and one of the driving forces behind "The Little Mermaid" -- which helped resuscitate Disney animation in the '80s -- has signed a nonexclusive, multipicture deal with the company.

    For his first assignment, Menken will score as well as write five songs for Walt Disney Pictures' romantic musical fantasy, "Enchanted," a combination of live action and 2-D animation from animator James Baxter. It marks a reunion with Tony- and Oscar-winning lyricist Stephen Schwartz, Menken's collaborator on "Pocahontas" and "The Hunchback of Notre Dame."

    "Alan is a true Disney legend, and his music has enriched so many of our films," said Walt Disney Studios chairman Dick Cook.

    Under the terms of his new arrangement, Menken is expanding his role from within other divisions of Disney. For Disney Theatrical Prods., he is in preproduction on the stage version of "The Little Mermaid."
