One of the projects currently in development for Disney+ is an animated film, “Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again”.

The new film centres around Larry’s son, Nick, who is hesitant to follow in his father’s footsteps as a night watchman. Years after the events of the last film, Larry’s son Nick becomes the new guardian of the museum. But, when things seem to go very well, Kahmunrah comes back and plots revenge. In addition to Nick and the titular villain, the movie will also feature returning characters: Jedediah, Octavius, Teddy Roosevelt, and Sacagawea with the addition of Joan of Ar. Though it’s unknown if any of the original cast are going to return. Shawn Levy is serving as executive producer on the film.

According to The Film Music Reporter, John Paesano is going to be scoring the upcoming animated film.

John Paesano is a BAFTA-winning, Emmy nominated composer, producer, conductor, and arranger for film, television, video games and records. John studied under Professor Sally Dow Miller of Conservatoire de Paris, and continued his studies at Berklee College of Music, focusing on composition.

On his path to creating film scores of his own, he worked for some of the industry’s most prestigious composers, including Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams. Some of Paesano’s notable credits include 20th Century Fox “Maze Runner” Trilogy, Marvel’s “Daredevil”, “Defenders” and the PlayStation game “Spider-Man”.

He won a World Soundtrack Award for his score to the well-received young adult adaptation of The Maze Runner, before going on to complete the trilogy, creating equally impressive scores for The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure. He also received seven Best Score nominations for PlayStation’s “Spider-Man” and won an Annie Award for Best Music for his work on DreamWorks’ animated series “Dragons: Riders of Berk”, based on the Academy Award winning film “How To Train Your Dragon”.

He recently recorded the music for Marvel’s forthcoming Avengers Campus at Disneyland and scored the music to the Disney+ Originals “Cheaper By The Dozen” and “Diary Of A Wimpy Kid”.

The animated film was originally revealed at the Investor Day in late 2020, and we’ve not heard much about the project since. Hopefully, we’ll get an update at the upcoming D23 Expo.
