Harry Gregson-Williams mentioned in a recent interview with Music Times that he is currently scoring Disneynature’s upcoming documentary Monkey Kingdom. The film is directed by Mark Linfield (Chimpanzee, Earth) and co-directed by Alastair Fothergill (African Cats, Bears, Deep Blue) and spotlights the reality of a newborn monkey and its mother, struggling to survive within the competitive social hierarchy of the Temple Troop, a dynamic group of monkeys who live in ancient ruins found deep in the jungles of South Asia. Linfield and Fothergill are also producing the project. Monkey Kingdom is set to be released on Earth Day, April 17, 2015 by Walt Disney Pictures.
