Leipzig Games Convention, 20th August 2008: The music of Disney classic animated movies is about to be brought to life on PlayStation®2 when Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) releases SingStar® Singalong With Disney exclusively for PAL territories this Autumn.

The wonderful magic of Disney comes from its timeless music as much as its spellbinding animation, from The Little Mermaid to Peter Pan, to Aladdin and Toy Story. With Disney fans of all ages in mind, SingStar Singalong With Disney proves that no one is ever too old for fairytales, and mum will be keen to join in with the kids to show off her singing skills. Tracks from Disney classics old and new ensure that every member of the family will find a favourite on the track list. The game features classic SingStar options allowing players to sing in solo, duet, or battle.

Each track is accompanied by clips from the original Disney movies, which means that your favourite characters appear on screen as you sing along. There is no longer any need to wait; every Disney fan’s dream comes true in Autumn 2008 when SingStar Singalong With Disney is released on PlayStation 2.

SingStar Singalong With Disney will include the following tracks, with more to be confirmed very soon.

    <*>Aladdin A Whole New World <*>The Jungle Book The Bare Necessities <*>Toy Story You Got A Friend In Me <*>The Little Mermaid Under The Sea <*>Pinocchio When You Wish Upon A Star
Songs will be made available in local languages across PAL territories.

SingStar has been one of SCEE’s biggest games titles since the first SingStar title was released in 2004, selling more than 6 million discs across PAL territories. SingStar has attracted new audiences to PlayStation gaming, with men, women and children picking up the iconic microphones and singing along with their favourite pop hits.
