Netflix has announced today that Rupert Gregson-Williams (Aquaman, Wonder Woman, The Legend of Tarzan, Hacksaw Ridge, The Crown) will compose the original score for the upcoming animated film Back to the Outback. The movie marks the directorial debuts of editor Clare Knight (Kung Fu Panda trilogy, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part) & writer Harry Cripps (Penguin Bloom, The Magic Pudding) and features the voice talent of Isla Fisher, Eric Bana, Guy Pearce, Miranda Tapsell, Angus Imrie, Keith Urban, Rachel House, Celeste Barber, Aislinn Derbez, Diesel Cash La Torraca, Wayne Knight, Lachlan Ross Power and Jacki Weaver, as well as Tim Minchin who is also contributing original songs. The animated feature follows  a ragtag group of Australia’s deadliest creatures as they plot a daring escape from their zoo to the Outback, a place where they’ll fit in without being judged for their scales and fangs. Cripps also wrote the screenplay based on a story by himself and executive producers Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind, I Am Legend) & Greg Lessans (My Best Friend’s Girl). Daniela Mazzucato is producing the project. Gregson-Williams has previously co-scored the Goldsman-directed drama Winter’s Tale with Hans Zimmer. A couple of years ago, Minchin has been announced as the composer for the now canceled DreamWorks Animation production Larrikins, which appears to be related to the new film. Back to the Outback will premiere next fall on Netflix.

The composer’s other upcoming projects include Paul Weitz’s Fatherhood, which is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on April 16, 2021 by Sony Pictures.
