The Dubai Parks and Resorts today announced the release of its official theme song, entitled All the Wonders of the Universe, as part of a pre-launch campaign to introduce the destination ahead of its opening in October 2016.
The song is the soundtrack to a new short film which brings to life Dubai Parks and Resorts three theme parks: Motiongate Dubai, Bollywood Parks Dubai and Legoland Dubai, as well as Legoland Water Park, Lapita Hotel, and Riverland Dubai.
The song will also feature the extensive entertainment programme currently being rehearsed at the parks in preparation for the grand opening, and can be viewed on Dubai Parks and Resorts’ social media channels and Emirates Airline’ entertainment channel, “ICE”.
The official theme song is a creative collaboration with the legendary academy award winner Alan Menken, an American film composer and pianist. The song tells the story of joy, laughter and amazement coming together at Dubai Parks and Resorts.
Alan Menken said: “Writing the song and score for the Dubai Parks and Resorts project was fun and unique for me in many ways. Creating a central theme to inaugurate the park called upon the experience I have gained working with the Disney company; to encapsulate the concept of this particular park in a larger-than-life song and message.
For inspiration I drew on the story that the Dubai Parks and Resorts team presented to me and imagined how a magical theme park might spring to life in the middle of the desert. I really believe that the song All the Wonders of the Universe is a perfect fit for this amazing new destination.”
Raed Kajoor Al Nuaimi, CEO of Dubai Parks and Resorts, said, “We are very excited about the launch of Dubai Parks and Resorts’ official theme song, as it marks yet another milestone towards our opening in October. Our goal is to give our guests the chance to ‘Experience Amazing’, and I believe that this collaboration with Mr Menken has brought us one step closer to achieving that.”
