Mychael noted in a Pop Disciple interview, "This year, I’m collaborating with my brother, Jeff on two animated films, The Addams Family for MGM, and Onward for Pixar. We are super excited about both of these — animation is something I really enjoy working on."
The fantasy elements of Onward are what we're excited to see the Danna's interpretation of — individually and together they've amassed a catalog of emotional, unique, and highly varied styles. They make adapting to different instruments and genres appear seamless and they've scored two projects for Pixar previously — the aforementioned The Good Dinosaur and short film, Sanjay's Super Team (again, Mychael scored Sanjay's himself).
Onward, set to release on March 6, 2020, is directed by Dan Scanlon and Produced by Kori Rae. Note: The Lead image in the post is via The Hollywood Reporter (courtesy of Cassandra Church) while Mychael and Jeff were scoring the film, Storks.
