At this year’s Cannes Film Festival, John Lasseter officially took the wraps off of some early footage for The Good Dinosaur. Along with the stunning realism of the landscape clips, Lasseter also noted that Mychael Danna, probably best known for his work on Life of Pi, would be scoring the film (previously Thomas Newman was slated). Following Cannes, Mychael and his Brother, Jeff, were interviewed by Music Times in June and noted that they would both be scoring the film.

As fans eagerly await the film’s release, the soundtrack will his digital and physical shelves on November 20 – five days before the November 25, 2015, theatrical premiere. The soundtrack is now listed for pre-order on Amazon and although no official track listing or album artwork has been revealed, we’ll be sure to update everyone as more details emerge.
It should also be noted that Mychael has also written the score for the short film, Sanjay’s Super Team which will be in theaters alongside The Good Dinosaur.
