Cinco Paul has been hired to adapt the holiday song of the same name and pen original music for the film, which is the first project under a multi-year deal between the two companies.
Imagine Kids+Family and Warner Music Group have announced plans to co-produce and co-finance the upcoming holiday film Winter Wonderland. Created and written by Despicable Me filmmaker Cinco Paul, Winter Wonderland will be based on the classic Warner Chappell-owned holiday song "Winter Wonderland" and feature a combination of stop-motion and live-action animation. Paul will pen original songs for the film's soundtrack.
Winter Wonderland is the first project to result from the partnership between Imagine Kids+Family and WMG that was first announced in June 2020. Under the multi-year agreement, the two companies will team up to co-produce and co-finance projects based on classic songs in the Warner Chappell Music publishing catalog. The idea of the new endeavor began as an internal conversation at Warner Chappell Music and later came to involve Imagine and Warner Music Entertainment, the company's film/TV division, which came aboard to co-develop the idea.
