Non c' scritto il nome Disney, ma giusto ci che gli manca guardando alle maestranze che vi sono coinvolte. Mi viene da dire, peccato...Sviluppato per la Casa del Topo sarebbe stato davvero bello. Ciononostante da tenere d'occhio e seguire sicuramente.


Alan Menken To Compose Music & Score For Skydance Animation’s ‘Spellbound’

Eight-time Oscar winning composer and lyricist Alan Menken is set to pen the music and score to Skydance Animation’s upcoming musical fantasy Spellbound.

Menken will team with lyricist and frequent collaborator Glenn Slater and music producer Chris Montan.
Directed by Vicky Jenson (Shrek, Shark Tale) and written by Lauren Hynek & Elizabeth Martin (Mulan) and Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King), Spellbound follows a young girl who must break the spell that has split her kingdom in two.

Menken is known for his award-winning work on Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Little Shop of Horrors, Pocahontas, Newsies, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Enchanted and Tangled. His work also includes the onstage musicals Little Shop of Horrors, A Christmas Carol, A Bronx Tale and Sister Act as well as adaptations of his film work including Newsies.

“Alan Menken’s music defines a generation and is loved by audiences around the world,” said Jenson. “From day one, we knew this magical world would be full of music, and we knew only Alan could bring it to life. With Glenn and Chris onboard, their combined creativity adds so much depth and complexity to the emotions of our characters and this very unique story. It is a true honor to collaborate with this team.”

“I’m thrilled to be united with so many talented collaborators and very much look forward to working with Vicky Jenson, Lauren Hynek and Elizabeth Martin,” said Menken. “Spellbound promises to be quite unique and inspiring.”

Slater is a Grammy-winning lyricist who has partnered with Menken on a number of projects including the animated films Tangled and Home on the Range; Broadway’s Sister Act, The Little Mermaid and A Bronx Tale; as well as songs for the television series Galavant. He has previously teamed with Andrew Lloyd Webber on Love Never Dies and School of Rock. In addition to his Grammy, Slater has also been nominated for three Tony Awards, two Emmys, an Oscar and a Golden Globe.

A 30-year vet, Montan is a Grammy-winning music producer and former President of Walt Disney Music where he was responsible for all Disney and Pixar animated features, all Disney Theatrical stage productions and music for the Walt Disney Theme Parks and Resorts worldwide. During his tenure, soundtracks for ten of the studio’s theatrical releases were certified multi-platinum and he garnered the studio 42 Oscar nominations for music with 16 wins.

Alessio, lo stesso film di cui avevamo parlato qua:

Qui si ricompone la squadra Disneyana dei tempi passati.

E a scriverlo c' Linda Woolverton (che assolutamente bravissima nelle sue sceneggiature... adoriamo come scrive Linda)...

La storia, musical e di stampo fiabesco, sembra ricordare i film passati della disney... che Lasseter (ora alla Skydance) voglia rendere questa casa di produzione la "nuova" Disney, cos come ha cercato di rendere la Disney la "nuova" Pixar? Chiss...
comunque una buona cosa.
Speriamo che il film sia bello e all'altezza delle premesse...

Sta nascendo un nuovo avversario nel settore animazione...? Comunque sono Anni che si formano studi nuovi, diventato difficile stare dietro a tutte le produzioni animate odierne, negli anni 90 erano in 3/4 a produrre film animati, prima di quegli anni anche meno! Ora fa gola come business, ci investono pi volentieri...

Paramount Dates Skydance’s ‘Spellbound’ & ‘Luck’ For 2022

Skydance and Paramount Pictures announced the release dates for two animated features today: Spellbound which will open worldwide on Nov. 11, 2022 and Luck on Feb. 18, 2022.

Spellbound and Luck will be co-financed by Paramount. Luck reps the first title from Skydance Animation.

President of Skydance Animation Holly Edwards said, “Luck and Spellbound create rich worlds and compelling characters that we know will resonate with audiences everywhere. It’s incredibly exciting to see our team of legendary creatives working around the clock and across the globe to bring these pictures to life.”

“Luck and Spellbound mark the next phase of Skydance and Paramount’s commitment to feature animation for the theatrical experience,” said Paramount’s President of Domestic Distribution, Chris Aronson. “These films not only continue our longstanding relationship with Skydance, but, along with Paramount Animation’s own upcoming films, mean we will be releasing event-level animated films for years to come.”

Spellbound, set in a world of magic where a young girl must break the spell that has split her kingdom in two, reunites director Vicky Jenson (Shrek, winner of the first-ever Oscar for Best Animated Feature and the Academy Award-nominated Shark Tale) with her Shrek producer David Lipman, who has recently joined the project.

Spellbound is written by Lauren Hynek & Elizabeth Martin (Mulan) and Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King), whose work has earned her an Olivier Award, a Tony Nomination and the designation of Writers Guild of America West’s Animation Writers Caucus lifetime achievement honoree.

As previously announced, eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas) is writing the original score and songs. Menken has won more competitive Academy Awards than any living person and is also the recipient of numerous other awards including Golden Globes, Grammys, Drama Desk Awards and a Tony.

Grammy Award-winner Glenn Slater (Tangled) has been tapped to pen the lyrics. In addition to his Grammy, Slater has also been nominated for three Tony Awards, two Emmys, an Oscar and a Golden Globe. Grammy Award-winner Chris Montan (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Frozen) serves as executive music producer.

Luck, directed by Peggy Holmes (Secret of the Wings, The Pirate Fairy), features the unluckiest girl alive who stumbles upon the never-before-seen world of good and bad luck and must join with magical creatures to uncover a force more powerful than even luck itself.

Led by John Lasseter and Edwards, Skydance Animation features full production capabilities across two continents, with more than 350 creatives based in Los Angeles and Madrid. In addition to its roster of feature films, Skydance Animation has a slate of soon-to-be-announced high-end television series in various stages of development.
