Next year, Disney is releasing a brand new Disney+ Original film, “Chang Can Dunk,” which follows Chang, a 16-year-old, Asian American high school student in the marching band, who bets the school basketball star that he can dunk by Homecoming. The bet leads the 5’ 8″ Chang on a quest to find the hops he needs to dunk in order to impress his crush, Kristy, and finally gain the attention and respect of his high school peers. But before he can rise up and truly throw one down, he’ll have to reexamine everything he knows about himself, his friendships and his family.

The new film will star Bloom Li, Ben Wang, and Dexter Darden. It has been directed and written by Jingyi Shao. Brad Weston is producing along with Emmy award-winning Lena Waithe and Rishi Rajani of Hillman Grad productions. Pamela Thur serves as executive producer.

Nathan Matthew David has revealed on his official website that he is composing the music for this upcoming Disney+ film.

Born to Filipinx immigrants, he explores a sonic palette combining Indigenous Filipinx instruments and modular synthesis. Comfortable in many sound worlds, he has composed scores ranging from orchestral to electronic.

He is a graduate of the University of Southern California’s Scoring For Motion Pictures and Television Program. Shortly thereafter, he began collaborating with his mentors Ludwig Goransson (Black Panther, Tenet) and Theodore Shapiro (Bombshell, Ghostbusters).

Nathan Matthew David has previously worked on the Netflix thriller ‘Hypnotic’, Amazon’s ‘A Man Named Scott’ and NBC’s ‘Young Rock’. In addition to doing synth work on Christopher Nolan’s ‘Tenet,’ and additional music for the recent season of ‘The Mandalorian’.
