It's release was June 15, 1994 and the 32nd animated feature film in the Walt Disney Animated Classic series. It brought in $987.5 million in the box office and is the highest-grossing hand-drawn animated film in history.

Though it seems tragic to replace the original soundtrack from the film with a new piece from the upcoming movie Pan, it's a great fit. My favorite part though, is seeing how story-teasing has changed over the years.
