“ALL HAIL KING JULIEN is filled with pulse-pounding, roof raising music including its can’t get-it-out-of-your-head opening theme. The series has a very unique soundtrack that swings between the feel of the feature films and a rockin dance party in the jungle – which is exactly what we were going for,” says Emmy® Award winning executive producer Mitch Watson.
“It’s a really fun show to score, each episode has a new and exciting storyline that calls for new and fresh ideas,” said Wiedmann. “Sometimes, that even means writing songs for our characters, together with the writers of the show. I hope you enjoy our homage to 1990’s love ballads in ‘True Bromance’, with a killer Saxophone solo (with lots of reverb!), or our throwback to 60’s Motown with ‘Iron Booty’, or, going back even further, Mort’s 1930’s rendition of ‘I Love Your Toes.’ I hope fans of ALL HAIL KING JULIEN enjoy this music as much as I enjoyed writing it.”
Born in Stuttgart, Germany, Frederik Wiedmann came to Los Angeles in 2004 to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a film composer. Wiedmann scored his first feature RETURN TO HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL and has since written music for a wide variety of feature films including FIELD OF LOST SHOES, COMPANY OF HEROES, HOSTEL PART III, THE DAMNED, THE HILLS RUN RED, and JARHEAD II. Wiedmann earned two Annie Award Music nominations to his resume for the critically acclaimed TV series GREEN LANTERN: THE ANIMATED SERIES. His credits include BEWARE THE BATMAN (Cartoon Network), several animated feature films based on the DC Comics including SON OF BATMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE: FLASHPOINT PARADOX, JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTIS, and JUSTICE LEAGUE: GODS AND MONSTERS, the successful Disney Junior feature LUCKY DUCK and series MILES FROM TOMORROWLAND.
The first two seasons of ALL HAIL KING JULIEN are currently available exclusively on Netflix. Lakeshore Records will release ALL HAIL KING JULIEN – Original Soundtrack on digital December 11, 2015 and on CD 2016.
