As the first of its kind, this anthology will be an invaluable resource for students, teachers and researchers in film, animation, culture, music and media studies.
Rick Altman, Professor Cinema and Comparative Literature, University of Iowa
The collection as a whole is good, and the four chapters in the ‘Musical Intertextuality’ section are among the most engaging and well written. Given the broad range of animated films considered – included among them a number of familiar blockbusters – this collection would function well as a resource for introductory courses dedicated to music in animated films. Recommended. Lower and upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, general readers.

Presents itself as a long-overdue and most welcome addition to the existing scholarship on animation, film, and film music studies, and offers a wealth of information suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate students and academics across a variety of disciplines.
