BBC has announced that Rene Aubry is set to score the upcoming animated special Superworm. The Magic Light Pictures production is directed by Sarah Scrimgeour & Jac Hamman and stars Olivia Colman as the narrator, Matt Smith as the title character, as well as Patricia Allison as Butterfly, and Rob Brydon as the Crow. The special based on Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler’s story of the same title follows the titular hero who has always on hand to help out all the other animals and insects – whether he’s saving baby toad from an accident, rescuing beetle from falling down a well, or offering himself up as a skipping rope for some bored bees. Max Lang and Suzanne Lang wrote the script. Barney Goodland is producing the project and Martin Pope & Michael Rose serve as executive producers. Aubry (The Bears’ Famous Invasion of Sicily, Under the Bombs) has previously scored numerous project for Magic Light Pictures, including The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, Stick Man, Zog and last year’s Zog and the Flying Doctors. Superworm will premiere in the UK on Christmas 2021 on BBC One.
