Sacrilege. Bring back the "Star Spangled Man With a Plan" guy.
Please tell me you didn't forget Alan Menken wrote that song?

Truthfully I hope they don't bring back the Lopezes for the number, from a Disney point of view I feel they peaked with the original Frozen and everything since then has felt like them thinking they are the most amazing and witty lyricists ever. And yes I'm including Agatha All Along in that statement, especially since I always end up humming The Munsters song at just the mention of the title.

Oh yeah, he knew who wrote that alright.

Seems I’m alone in thinking that Rogers: The Musical (really inauthentic title BTW) is just a one and done sight gag? Why do we think we’re getting any kind of song? Has there been a leak or did I miss something in the trail?

I'm thinking that Lopez went out when Gigantic did, right around the same time as Lin-Manuel Miranda came in with Moana and Mary Poppins.
("You mean Mary Poppins RETURNS, don't you? Think someone forgot the Sherman Brothers!" :roll: )


Disney only tends to use one pet songwriter on a leash at a time.

Just off-topic, but oh, now you had to make me go back and giggle over one of my own social-media posts: :lol:

We were having a news-discussion over frustration with the many, many alibis of anti-vaxx'ers, and I responded:
"Among other people asserting their individual feelings in hesitating to pursue the vaccine, a Mr. Herman Munster, of Mockingbird Heights NY, explained his reluctance, saying, quote, 'I-it's not fair! Th-they just want to give me another shot, and I won't do it!...D'you hear me, I won't! (jumps up and down) I won't, I won't, I won't, I won't, I won't!'"

I'm only thinking we are getting a song because of the clip of them twirling on stage with a dramatic ending, I imagine it would most likely be no longer than 60 seconds but I feel we will get some lyrics to go with the orchestral swirling finale musical moment.

Lin-Manuel Miranda had nothing to do with the writing of Mary Poppins Returns.
