In an era when terrifying beasts roamed the seas, monster hunters were celebrated heroes – and none were more beloved than the great Jacob Holland. But when young Maisie Brumble stows away on his fabled ship, he’s saddled with an unexpected ally. Together they embark on an epic journey into uncharted waters and make history. From Academy Award winning filmmaker Chris Williams (Moana, Big Hero Six, Bolt), The Sea Beast takes us to where the map ends, and the true adventure begins.
Three-time GRAMMY Award-winning composer Mark Mancina, who previously collaborated with Williams on Moana, is back again with another sweeping soundscape that compliments Netflix’s seafaring epic perfectly. Recorded by an 80-piece orchestra, Mancina’s expansive, multilayered score was influenced by classic adventure movies, with elements of traditional Celtic music intertwined to bring an authentic spirit to the film’s adventures on the high seas. Of his work on the soundtrack, Mancinasays, “How grateful I am for the opportunity to have composed The Sea Beast’s original score. A successfulscore, in my opinion, is one that deeply enhances the film, yet can stand on its own. I think our team accomplished that with this score. It was also a great pleasure to collaborate once again with the brilliant Chris Williams.”
Also featured on the soundtrack is the film’s swashbuckling original sea shanty, “Captain Crow”, written by acclaimed songwriting duo Nell Benjamin and Laurence O’Keefe (Legally Blonde: The Musical, Mean Girls).
