David Arnold (Independence Day, Casino Royale, Stargate, Sherlock, Tomorrow Never Dies, Hot Fuzz) is set to score The Storm Whale Trilogy, three half-hour animated specials based on the children’s books by Benji Davies. The three specials, The Storm Whale, The Storm Whale in Winter and Grandma Bird, are written and directed by Robin Shaw (We’re Going on a Bear Hunt), produced by Lupus Films and tell the story of a young boy living on a small island with only some sleepy cats and shy sea creatures for company while his father is out to catch fish, when a baby whale washes up on the island. Ruth Fielding & Camilla Deakin (Ethel & Ernest, The Snowman and the Snowdog) are producing the project for Lupus. Arnold has previously scored Shaw’s 2019 animated special The Tiger Who Came to Tea. No word yet on a release date for The Storm Whale Trilogy. (Variety)
