The advent of audio technology for film pushed the development of musical films as a genre, evolving from stage musicals. Musicals are generally narratives that are accompanied by songs and dance sequences that are interwoven in the plot. Sometimes these elaborate sequences are either plugged as breaks between scenes and sometimes to connect the storyline with an important message.
With the emergence of sound in films in the 1920s, films such as 42nd Street, Gold Diggers of 1933, Footlight Parade to Beauty and the Beast (1991), Aladdin (1992), The Lion King (1994 ), to the more recent ones like La La Land (2016), The Greatest Showman (2017), Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again!, A Star Is Born, Mary Poppins Returns (all 2018), Rocketman (2019), have elevated the experience of the viewers and kept their feet tapping throughout the film.
