You can get an idea of what we might expect to see and hear on October 16th when the film hits theaters by listening to the full song after the jump.
Thanks to the song being available on myspace I’ve now listened to the song a couple of times and I fall more and more in love with each time. It’s easy to when you imagine the images that we’ve been treated to before in the previous trailers set to this high spirited song. You can’t help but smile when you listen to it just in the same way that you cant help but smile when you see the trailers. This is, in my opinion, a perfect fit to the film from what I can tell. I also think that is only more proof that we will be seeing a truly one of a kind, beautiful, and amazing film later on this year. I can’t wait.
The song will be available digitally starting tomorrow, August 25th. Meanwhile, the soundtrack will go will be released on September 29th.
