Dreamworks Announces First Animated Musical, Monkeys Of Bollywood

Variety is reporting that Dreamworks will be doing their first animated musical titled Monkeys Of Bollywood. Composing the film is A.R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours). Dreamworks has also hired lyricist Stephen Schwartz.

Monkeys Of Bollywood is based on the Hindu poem The Ramayana. The story is about 2 Monkeys working together to stop an evil demon from taking over the world. The film will done in the Bollywood style of filmmaking.

I remember growing up music was a big part of animated films. With the advent of CGI music has been missing for a while now in animated films. It’s nice to see music in animation making a bit of comeback with 2009’s The Princess and the Frog and  last years Tangled.
