Harry Gregson-Williams is currently scoring Aardman Animations’ and Sony Pictures Animation’s upcoming feature Arthur Christmas. He is taking over scoring duties from Michael Giacchino and Adam Cohen who were originally attached to score the movie. Gregson-Williams has previously co-scored Aardman’s first full length feature Chicken Run with John Powell and was the principal composer on the company’s 2006 film Flushed Away. Arthur Christmas directed by Barry Cook (Mulan) centers on Arthur, the son of Santa and his ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. The movie’s voice talent includes James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton and Ashley Jensen. The film is scheduled to be released on November 23, 2011 in the US and two weeks earlier in the UK. For updates on the project, visit the official movie website.
