Gabriel Yared has been hired to score the upcoming animated feature Dilili in Paris (Dilili à Paris). The film is written and directed by Michel Ocelot (Kirikou and the Wild Beasts, Tales of the Night) and follows a young Kanak who investigates a spate of mysterious kidnappings of young girls that is plaguing Belle Epoque Paris and encounters a series of extraordinary characters in the course of her investigation.
