"Alexander" Soundtrack and Movie News!

Did you know The Jim Henson Company and Disney teamed up and have a movie coming out in less then a month?

Did you also know it's soundtrack is scored by Christophe Beck?

Well it's true! And based on the image above you've probably already guessed it's called Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day and the fact that there's no Muppets, Fraggles, 6 foot tall yellow birds, or creatures of any kind may be why there hasn't been any real excitement or buzz from Henson fans. 

The six-song Alexander Soundtrack is available for Pre-Order now and includes the score suite by Christophe Beck and an original an end-credit song from The Vamps 
entitled “Hurricane.”

The Vamps also filmed a music video for the song that features a cameo by Disney star Bella Thorne, who appears in the film.

According to Disney "Dylan Minnette, who plays big brother Anthony in the film, co-wrote the song “Surf Surf Don’t Drown,” which is performed by Minnette’s band, The Narwhals, and also appears in the film. The other cast member who provides a song for the soundtrack is Kerris Dorsey, who portrays big sister Emily. She wrote and performed the song “Best Worst Day Ever” along with her sister Justine Dorsey."

Below is the full track list:

Maybe if fans of Judith Viorst's classic 1972 novel are eagerly anticipating Alexander, 
camping out in line at theaters, and rushing to download the soundtrack, we'll see more collaborations between Henson and Disney again soon. Hopefully including some with professional doll wigglers!

We'll find out if it's a good day for the collaboration or a "Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" when the film hits theaters October 10,
