Howard Ashman is best known for writing the lyrics to some of our favorite Disney animated classics like Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and The Little Mermaid. Arguably the three best Disney animated musical films of all time! He also wrote several lyrics for musicals including Little Shop of Horrors.

While Howard Ashman’s work is well-known, the man behind the words is not. Back in 2018, Howard premiered at Tribeca Film and for the first time ever it will be making its streaming debut on Disney+ come August 7th.

The documentary film will feature never-before-seen archival footage, personal films and photographs, and interviews with Howard’s friends and family. The documentary tells the complete story of Howard’s life and career from growing up in Baltimore, to his effervescent career, and sadly, his untimely death from AIDS.

Here’s a first look at the trailer:

We can’t be the only ones who got chills watching that!

In addition to telling his story, Howard will also feature interviews with the Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken who worked with Howard. Disney Legends and Princess Jodi Benson (Ariel) and Paige O’Hara (Belle) will also speak about their time with the Disney Legend.

Howard is at the top of our list of things to watch on Disney+ in August and we hope it’s on yours too!
