In not so surprising news, Hans Zimmer and Steve Mazzaro are returning to score The Boss Baby 2, the sequel to the 2017 DreamWorks hit. Zimmer confirmed as much last week to the website HansZimmer.com and reported by Soundtrack.net.
The first Boss Baby, released on March 31, 2017, earned $468.4 million worldwide, with $167 million coming from North America and $301.4 million from international markets. It also spawned a spinoff series on Netflix titled The Boss Baby: Back in Business.
The Boss Baby is a hilariously universal story about how a new baby’s arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator, a wildly-imaginative 7-year old named Tim. With a sly, heart-filled message about the importance of family, DreamWorks’ The Boss Baby is an authentic and broadly appealing original comedy for all ages.
The voice cast also includes Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow and Miles Bakshi. The animated film is directed by Tom McGrath and written by Michael McCullers. The Boss Baby is produced by Ramsey Ann Naito.
Boss Baby 2 is slated to hit theaters on March 26, 2021.
