HBO and Cartoon Network have greenlit an animated rendition of the beloved classic tale Peter & The Wolf featuring music and narration by Gavin Friday, and artwork based on original illustrations by Bono. The special transforms Sergei Prokofiev’s much-loved symphony into an enchanting and contemporary visual masterpiece that touches on themes of growing up, loss, courage, transformation, and our relationship with nature. The animated short film is scheduled to premiere later this year and is part of an ongoing relationship with Irish Hospice Foundation. The uniquely creative project is led by musician and composer Gavin Friday and saw him narrate the reimagined classic tale with The Friday Seezer Ensemble performing Prokofiev score, newly arranged by Maurice Seezer and Gavin Friday. Alongside this remarkable new film, Peter & The Wolf is subject to a re-release as a book and in audio form with brand new auditory and visual material, to be released across various formats by BMG in November 2023. This 2LP version will be presented on Double Heavyweight Black vinyl, half-speed remastered and includes 2 x exclusive 12” Artcards.
