Composer Dominic Lewis Scoring Disney+’s ‘Baymax!’
We are a little over a month away from Disney+’s Big Hero 6 spin-off series, Baymax!. According to Film Music Reporter, Composer Dominic Lewis (The King’s Man) has signed on to score the Disney Animation Studios’ first streaming series.
Lewis is no stranger to working with The Walt Disney Company, the composer previously scored all episodes of the Ducktales reboot and the Monsters Inc sequel series, Monsters At Work. Lewis has also worked alongside longtime composer Henry Jackman on Wreck-It Ralph, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Disney’s Big Hero 6.
Streaming exclusively on Disney+ on June 29, the all-new series of healthcare capers returns to the fantastical city of San Fransokyo where the affable, inflatable, inimitable healthcare companion robot, Baymax, sets out to do what he was programmed to do: help others.
“I thought it would be fun to do a Disney+ series with Baymax interacting with normal folks,” said series creator Don Hall, who helmed 2014’s Oscar-winning film Big Hero 6. “In each of our six episodes, Baymax just wants to help someone—and a lot of times they don’t want to be helped. He sets out to fix a physical issue that he’s identified, and in the process, gets to a deeper, more emotional place and can be almost transformative in that role.”
Baymax! is produced by Roy Conli and Bradford Simonsen. The series’ episodes are directed by Dean Wellins (Eps 1, 2, 6), Lissa Treiman (Ep 3), Dan Abraham (Ep 4), and Mark Kennedy (Ep 5). Screenwriter is Cirocco Dunlap. Scott Adsit returns as the voice of Baymax. Voice talent featured in episodes include Ryan Potter, Maya Rudolph, Emily Kuroda, Lilimar, Zeno Robinson, and Jaboukie Young-White.
