Been added to Danny’s IMDB page.
Might be nothing, but Joe Roth is producing and he’s worked with Elfman a number of times.July 16, 2018 at 7:09 pm #98656July 17, 2018 at 8:58 am #98657
So close to Dumbo’s release date, additional composers are already warming up…July 17, 2018 at 7:04 pm #98658
He’s working on Dumbo now, so hopefully things aren’t too cramped…August 5, 2019 at 7:25 am #98996
Saw a few mentions of this in my Google feed, I wonder if Elfman is still attached.August 5, 2019 at 11:23 am #98997
It’s mentioned on his website and his agency site. I’d guess he’s working on it now.
He has the cello concerto, National Youth Orchestra commission and the percussion concerto (though this one premieres in early 2021) to work on next year, so I wonder if this is going to be his last movie for a while.August 15, 2019 at 8:53 pm #98998
Danny is scheduled to be in London from October 11th to the 23rd to start recording for Dr. DoolittleAugust 16, 2019 at 8:11 pm #99002
Thanks for the update.
I generally love the London recordings (Alice Through the Looking Glass, in particular, sounds fantastic), but there have been a few scores lately were some recordings have been off. Most of Justice League sounds great, but some sounds muffled ( ‘The World Needs Superman’, for example). Newton Howard’s Crimes of Grindelwald was recorded there and had similar issues. There are a few moments in Dumbo that sound a bit muffled too.

No music team on IMDB, Elfman is in California the night before recording was supposed to begin, and he has mentioned that he’s currently writing the commission for the National Youth Symphony in recent interviews…
I smell another delay.

I’m not sure how much more they could delay recording, as Elfman starts his Nightmare concerts at the end of November and performs right through the first week of December.October 6, 2019 at 12:41 pm #99043
Well, Steve Bartek told me he was not in Paris during the Elfman week-end because he had to stay in LA working on Doolittle. That was three weeks ago. So, at least we know Elfman is done writing the music.October 6, 2019 at 1:55 pm #99044
Interesting. I hope it’s all worked out and the messy production (new writer brought in for reshoots which were filmed by a new director) hasn’t affected the music. It’s apparently out in three months but we don’t even have a picture.October 8, 2019 at 6:53 pm #99045
Well, a few of Elfman regulars are now credited and the trailer is out in a few days – I was wrong!October 13, 2019 at 6:06 pm #99047October 19, 2019 at 5:04 pm #99052
