With Mary Poppins Returns doing supercalifragilistic business at the global box office, it seems inevitable that cash-hungry studio heads will commission a reboot for the other iconic Julie Andrews musical before too long. The Sound of Music was, after all, the highest grossing movie of all time for a period in the 60s, and its iconic soundtrack remains as recognisable as ever. For example, at time of writing, pop star Ariana Grande is sitting at #1 with a song that heavily samples My Favourite Things.
So for episode 101 of Beyond The Box Set, we thought we’d get ahead of the curve with our own Sound of Music sequel ideas. Along the way, Harry shares his family’s very personal connection to the movie, John admits to having never actually seen it, and we both agree that The Baroness got a really raw deal.
In other exciting developments, we’re proud to announce that Beyond The Box Set is a founding member of PAVE Media, an independent network of podcasters, YouTubers and other online content creators, helping each other to build their audiences, share resources and attract high-quality advertisers. The website was developed by our very own Harry Chappell, so check it out and let us know what you think.
