Sandcastle Studios’ Jungle Beat: The Movie, a charming family adventure made in collaboration with Sunrise Production, is now available worldwide on Amazon, GooglePlay and AppleTV. The animated feature recently premiered as part of the official feature selection of the digital edition of the Annecy International Animation Festival.
Singer/songwriter Natasha Bedingfield has recorded a brand-new song entitled Together in This. The song is the official end title track for the film. Bedingfield and Jonas Myrin are joined by people from all walks of life dancing to the same choreography in unison with the animated animals from the film. The music video also features special guests including Anastasia Radzinskaya (“Like Nastya”) who is the leading digital media creator for children with over 130 million YouTube subscribers across the globe, among others.
“As a mother, I love being a part of a movie that will captivate my son with its positive messages about unity and friendship that the whole family can appreciate,” says Bedingfield. “The song Together in This came about after my friend and acclaimed songwriter, Jonas Myrin, called me about a track he wrote for Jungle Beat: The Movie with my voice in mind. When he told me what the song was about, I knew I wanted to be a part of the project. I feel so much joy singing a song that promotes togetherness during this challenging time. It really tapped into the joy that my son gives me, and I hope it brings joy to other families as well.”
Together in This is Bedingfield’s first release following her latest studio album, Roll With Me, which was produced by producer Linda Perry and released via We Are Hear in 2019. The LP showcases the power of Bedingfield’s unparalleled musicality heard in hits like her era-defining anthem Unwritten, a double-platinum hit that emerged as the most played song on U.S. Top 40 radio the year of its release.
Jungle Beat: The Movie is a family friendly adventure of epic proportions. When a homesick alien crash-lands his spaceship near the colorful African jungle, his new animal friends need to find a way to get him back to his ship and teach him about friendship and fun before his Space-Conqueror father can take over the planet. The film is based on the global hit series, Jungle Beat, which has broadcast in over 200 countries and across a range of media platforms including TV, cinema and in-flight entertainment.
