Disney has announced that the five-time Oscar-winning beloved classic Rodgers & Hammerstein film, “The Sound Of Music”, will air on ABC on Sunday, 17th December 2023 at 7:00-11:00 p.m. EST.
In this true-life story, Julie Andrews lights up the screen as Maria, a spirited young Austrian woman who leaves the convent to become a governess for Captain von Trapp’s (Christopher Plummer) seven unruly children. Her charm and songs soon win the hearts of the children – and their father. But when Nazi Germany unites with Austria, Maria is forced to attempt a daring escape with her new family.
The film also stars Angela Cartwright, Anna Lee, Ben Wright, Charmian Carr, Christopher Plummer, Daniel Truhitte, Debbie Turner, Doris Lloyd, Duane Chase, Eleanor Parker, Evadne Baker, Gil Stuart, Gilchrist Stuart, Heather Menzies, Julie Andrews, Kym Karath, Marni Nixon, Nicholas Hammond, Norma Varden, Peggy Wood, Portia Nelson, and Richard Haydn.
This film features the heartwarming fan-favourite songs, including “Edelweiss,” “My Favorite Things,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” “The Lonely Goatherd” and “The Sound of Music.”
Earlier this year, Disney removed “The Sound Of Music” from Disney+ around the world. Hopefully, with ABC airing the film over the holiday season, we might see this classic 20th Century Studios film return at some point in the future.
