2014 is a big year for Disney anniversaries. Strictly looking at the movies it's the 55th anniversary of Sleeping Beauty, the 50th anniversary of Mary Poppins, the 25th anniversary of The Little Mermaid, and the 20th anniversary of The Lion King. That last one has been chosen to kick off a new musical event called The Legacy Collection.

Over the next two years, Disney will rerelease the soundtracks to a dozen classic films as part of The Legacy Collection, each featuring new liner notes, documentaries, artwork and previously unreleased music. The Lion King is out first, and no available for pre-order, followed by the others mentioned above this year and Fantasia, Pinocchio, Toy Story, Lady and the Tramp, Pocahontas, The Aristocats and Cinderella next year.
