I’ve been fascinated by the Sherman Brothers ever since seeing Saving Mr. Banks and the documentary The Boys.
Recently (and unfortunately since the passing of his brother Robert), Richard Sherman attained living-legend status; feted by the Hollywood community and finally receiving the high praise he and his brother have always deserved.
Now, that incredible legacy includes the “Sherman Brothers’ Stage.”
On Tuesday, Mariana Uribe wrote about the event for Oh My Disney: “Yesterday evening, at the world premiere of Disney’s Christopher Robin, Disney Legends Richard and Robert Sherman were honored with an eponymous soundstage at The Walt Disney Studios, and we were lucky enough to attend this significant celebration!
“The Sherman brothers are the icons who composed the music for such Disney classics as Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, and the Winnie the Pooh series. In fact, Richard Sherman himself also composed three new songs for the upcoming classic Christopher Robin.”
Attractions Magazine captured the ceremony via YouTube:
DSNY Newscast host Jack Kendall tweeted his thoughts on the dedication:
I’m heading to the fist showing of Christopher Robin (at my local theater) on Thursday. I’ll be sure to mention the new Sherman songs in my review!
