Original score from the 2021 animated film directed by Gabriel Riva Palacio Alatriste and Rodolfo Riva Palacio Alatriste, featuring Maite Perroni, Bruno Bichir and Jesús Ochoa, produced by Huevocartoon and released by Pantelion Films (USA) and Videocine (Mexico).
THE STORY: Toto and his friends must rescue his egg children after they’re taken away for a gourmet food event in Africa.
THE SCORE: “For me it is always a gift to write music for an animated motion picture. It is never an easy task, the music has to carry the images emotionally and has to help with the storytelling. The possibility of writing big action scenes, of giving the emotional dimension to the characters all without losing the comical touch needed and with a 75 piece orchestra is always an exhilarating and challenging experience. It was a great joy to revisit some of the leitmotifs I had created for Un gallo con muchos huevos (‘Little Rooster’s Eggcellent Adventure’, also released by MovieScore Media), and also to compose new ones with the arrival of new characters such as Max and Uli’s (Toto’s children), or the Duchess and the Russians (the bad guys). And it was truly marvellous to work again with directors Gabriel and Rodolfo Riva-Palacio. Hope you enjoy this one as much as I did!” – Zacarias M. de la Riva
