Wendy Music By Dan Romer & Benh Zeitlin
The classic story of Peter Pan is wildly reimagined in Wendy, an adventurous epic from Benh Zeitlin, director of Beasts of the Southern Wild. Lost on a mysterious island where aging and time have come unglued, Wendy must fight to save her family, her freedom, and the joyous spirit of youth from the deadly peril of growing up.
The film features a beautifully vibrant soundtrack co-written by Dan Romer & Benh Zeitlin. The album is the latest in a series of scoring collaborations for the duo that includes both Zeitlin’s own critically-acclaimed, breakout film Beasts of the Southern Wild as well as additional titles Brimstone & Glory and Mediterranea.
Of the soundtrack Benh says, “We set out to create a score the charges straight at you, with all the energy and reckless abandon of a toddler on a rampage. The themes are meant to feel timeless and cathartic, iconic yet dizzying. We wanted to take the ragtag back yard orchestra concept from Beasts of the Southern Wild and explode it to new heights.”
