Mychael Danna & Jeff Danna have been hired to score Pixar Animation Studios’ upcoming feature Onward.
Jeff & Mychael Danna are no strangers to Pixar as they have previously co-scored the 2015 animated movie The Good Dinosaur for the studio.
Written and directed by Monsters University’s Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae (Up, Incredibles, Monsters Inc.) the film will also feature the talented Octavia Spencer, and will revolve around two young elf boys whose father passed when they were young and embark on a quest to learn more about him.
The story takes place in a modern fantasy world where there once was magic, but over time it has lost its sense of meaning, wonder and excitement, a topic unlike many of Disney’s genres where magic is consistently used.
Onward is scheduled to hit theaters on March 6, 2020.
