Original score from the 2010 animated feature film directed by David Liu, featuring the voices of Jackie Chan, Garry Chalk and Ashleigh Ball.
THE STORY: An ambitious little boy stumbles into a magical world filled with fun, laughter, adventure, danger, and the most amazing and colorful characters. Along his journey, Silk Boy discovers the history of his country and becomes a hero by fighting against the evil Filthington IV who will stop at nothing to obtain all of the riches of the world, especially the control of the rarest silk on earth made by the beautiful Goddess of Silk.
THE SCORE: Continuing to nurture the growth of a new generation of highly talented film composers with a strong symphonic voice, MovieScore Media is very proud to introduce fans and aficionados to the musical world of Alain Mayrand. His big orchestral score for the animated Jackie Chan movie The Legend of Silkboy is an exercise in delightful symphonic wall-to-wall scoring taking us into a magical world of adventure, fantasy and excitement. A plethora of themes is used throughout the score, which will remind listeners of such film music heroes as John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith and Patrick Doyle. Highly enjoyable score!
