Just ahead of the release of the new National Geographic documentary series, “America The Beautiful” on Disney+ on July 4th, Walt Disney Records has released the soundtrack to the series, which features an all-new original score, composed by Joseph Trapanese.
From the award-winning producers of “Planet Earth,” “Frozen Planet” and the “Disneynature” films, “America the Beautiful,” narrated by Michael B. Jordan, is the jaw-dropping story of our homeland and its amazing animals. North America is the most diverse and extreme continent on Earth. The only place where you can find every landscape, from Arctic icecap to baking desert and everything in-between. We take a journey through America’s most spectacular regions — the mountainous Northwest, the steamy South, the arid West and the endless Heartland. Whatever the neighborhood, there’s a hero who can make it a home. Smart, tough, brave, you name it, the animals of North America have what it takes to overcome the elements and thrive. In our closing episode, we meet the human heroes fighting to preserve our wildlife and wild places for future generations. Some flashing lights sequences or patterns may affect photosensitive viewers.
Joseph Trapanese has previously worked on “Lady And The Tramp”, “Spiderhead”, “Oblivion”, “Shadow and Bone” and “The Greatest Showman”.
