  • Disneys amazing history would sound a little less sweet without the beloved songs "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," "Its a Small World (After All)," and "I Wanna Be Like You," all classics that were written by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman. This documentary charts the lives of the hit-making brothers, beginning with their early years and revealing the personal struggles that were hidden by their gleeful-sounding creations. Directed by the sons of the Sherman Brothers, this film features interviews with Julie Andrews, John Lasseter, Alan Menken, Hayley Mills, Randy Newman, Dick Van Dyke, John Williams, and Ben Stiller, who also serves as an executive producer.
