If “Un­der the Sea,” “A Whole New World” and “Colors of the Wind” re­main on your iPod to this day, lis­ten up: Alan Menken, the man be­hind those epic Dis­ney mu­sic mo­ments, is writ­ing the score for Gala­vant, an all-sing­ing, all-lam­poon­ing fairy tale on small screens this win­ter. Bri­tish-Cana­dian ac­tress Karen David, who plays the feisty princess Is­abella, al­most couldn’t han­dle how much the Menken con­nec­tion meant to her: “When I sang my bal­lad ‘Love Is Strange’ in front of Alan, I got goose­bumps—and a lit­tle teary. I re­mem­ber be­ing in the choir in high school in Toronto and sing­ing all of his Dis­ney songs. Never in a mil­lion years did I think I would be work­ing with him. I just had to pinch my­self!”
