But the passing of countless company contributors (artists, actors, and more) always stings. This special edition of Disney In Depth remembers many of the men and women who, in one way or another, shaped how The Walt Disney Company is today.

In Memoriam: Film and TV Entertainers 2015

In Memoriam 2015: Film, Television, Sports, Literature, the Arts

Another year has come to an end. 2015 was full of life in so many vivid ways: creatively, intensely, and tragically, but also wonderfully presenting its own set of challenges and obstacles to overcome in the new year. And as a year also brings, we also lost many shining figures in the entertainment world among other fields.

Here’s a rundown of some of those figures who touched our lives and will continue to touch our lives always as we remember some of the key people in Television and Film, in front of the camera and behind the scenes, people who are legends, pioneers, luminaries, inspirations, and above all, timeless.

James Horner

Last month fans of movies and movie music were shocked and devastated at the news that James Horner, the Academy Award winning composer behind the scores for movies like Braveheart, Titanic, Avatar, A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Aliens, and so many more, died after the plane he was piloting crashed.

Not only was Horner one of the best in the business at creating music for film, but he was also extremely passionate about what he did when the right project came along, as director Antoine Fuqua shared recently while remembering the late composer. Horner composed the score for Fuqua’s latest movie, the boxing drama Southpaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal, and according to Fuqua, he not only did it for free but paid his musicians out of his own pocket because he liked the movie that much. In addition to that, Fuqua was also stunned to discover that Horner had already secretly written the music for his next movie, the remake of The Magnificent Seven.

You can hear what Fuqua had to say in the audio clip below.

Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture Collection Blu-ray Releases

Since there isn’t much home video news to report this week, I’ve decided to make this edition of The Digital Wire a special one. In light of the recent deaths of Leonard Nimoy and producer Harve Bennett this week’s Wire will be devoted to a list of the five best films in the Star Trek franchise starring the legendary Original Series cast available to own on Blu-ray.

Each title provides a link to its corresponding Amazon page so you can order a copy of your very own if you choose (you can also get the 6-film Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection, which comes with a bonus disc). Also, although this is a special edition of the Digital Wire, I’ve still provided a list of this week’s major releases on Blu-ray and DVD, complete with their own purchase links. We would greatly appreciate it if you use those links to order because a small percentage of each order helps keep this website running at max power.

Braveheart Sword

A well-done cover of popular music is always enjoyable, whether it be by a band or group or sans lyrics on a guitar or piano and so on.

I still have that acoustic guitar cover of Alan Silvestri’s Back to the Future score stuck in my brain, so I thought I’d share another impressive one. This time it’s James Horner‘s moving theme from Mel Gibson’s 1994 Best Picture winner, Braveheart, as played on a bass guitar by Zander Zon.

You can check out the video below.

Amazing Spider-Man

The Amazing Spider-Man is the latest of the summer superhero blockbusters to storm the box office and has been doing extremely well since its theatrical opening on Tuesday: the Marc Webb-directed reboot of Marvel Comics’ web-slinging crimefighter defied expectations and mixed critical and audience response (Read our own FamousMonster’s review here) and posted a record Tuesday opening day gross of $35 million, beating the previous record-holder – Michael Bay’s first Transformers movie, released exactly five years to the day of Amazing‘s release.

James Horner, the Academy Award-winning composer who has brought his considerable musical chops to the soundtracks for films ranging from 1982’s Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan to James Cameron’s record-smashing epics Titanic and Avatar, was hired to provide the aural accompaniment for Spidey’s return to the silver screen after a five-year absence. Previously the cinematic adventures of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko‘s iconic superhero were scored, under the direction of Sam Raimi, by Danny Elfman and Christopher Young. AOL Music is currently streaming the film’s soundtrack CD, which was released the same day as the movie by Sony Classical, for FREE at their website.
