Brian Tyler Scores Disney’s New CHIP ‘N DALE RESCUE RANGERS
A comeback 30 years in the making, this hybrid live-action/CG animated action-comedy catches up with the former Disney Afternoon television stars in modern-day Los Angeles. CHIP ‘N DALE: RESCUE RANGERS is an upcoming American live-action/animated adventure comedy film based on, and a continuation of, the animated TV series of the same name (1989-90). The film is directed by Akiva Schaffer from a screenplay by Dan Gregor and Doug Mand and an original story by Barry Schwartz.
The new film premieres May 20, 2022, exclusively on Disney+. It stars John Mulaney as Chip, Andy Samberg as Dale and KiKi Layne. Also joining the cast are Will Arnett, Eric Bana, Flula Borg, Dennis Haysbert, Keegan-Michael Key, Tress MacNeille, Tim Robinson, Seth Rogen, J.K. Simmons, and Chris Parnell.
In CHIP ‘N DALE: RESCUE RANGERS, Chip and Dale are living amongst cartoons and humans in modern-day Los Angeles, but their lives are quite different now. It has been decades since their successful television series was canceled, and Chip has succumbed to a life of suburban domesticity as an insurance salesman. Dale, meanwhile, has had CGI surgery and works the nostalgia convention circuit, desperate to relive his glory days. When a former cast mate mysteriously disappears, Chip and Dale must repair their broken friendship and take on their Rescue Rangers detective personas once again to save their friend’s life.
“It has been a joy composing the score for this incredibly wonderful and hilarious animated film,” Brian Tyler wrote in a Facebook post.
