The film is called Larrikins and the story is set around a bilby marsupial, who leaves his family for adventures in the desert. Tim will be writing the score and lyrics for the movie.
DreamWorks is the company behind other successful animated movies such as Shrek and Madagascar and speaking about the new film, chief creative officer Bill Damaschke said “We've been looking to work with the immensely talented Tim Minchin on something for a while, and there is no doubt that this project is a perfect fit.”
Minchin commented on his role in the making of Larrikins saying “I was lucky enough to grow-up in Western Australia and know that the Australian outback is vast and spell-binding and heart-stoppingly beautiful, and the characters that inhabit it are unique and hilarious and tough and cheeky. It's going to be bloody good fun”.
