For fans of Beauty and the Beast or The Little Mermaid or Aladdin, there are few people more influential than Howard Ashman.

He created and wrote the songs and music for those movies, including “Part of Your World”, “Be Our Guest”, and so many more.

Plus, we’ll get to hear and see the story of his special collaboration alongside legendary composer Alan Menken.

On top of his work for The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, Howard Ashman also brought up the notion of doing a musical adaptation of the Aladdin story.

Of course, we know now that one is another timeless classic in the Walt Disney Animation canon of animated musical movies.

Sadly, Howard Ashman died from complications due to AIDS back in 1991.

He unfortunately passed before the Beauty and the Beast movie was able to come out in movie theaters that year.
