Intrada: "CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG" music by John Debney

John Debney's score to the new live-action, big-screen adaptation of Clifford The Big Red Dog. Lovingly produced by Paramount Pictures, the warm tale of a girl and her super-sized dog gave Debney (Home Sweet Home Alone, Orville, Hocus Pocus) a chance to compose an effervescent, playful, and beautiful score with moments of grand aby a large orchestra of 60 players. As Debney mentions in his album note, "Clifford is one of the most beloved stories of all time so I jumped in with my heart filled with joy." That joy comes through loud and clear in the music, and in fact the joy can be seen in the all the actors who clearly felt the film was a labor of love. The CD features a generous 78-minute playing time.

In the film, Emily Elizabeth (Darby Camp) adopts an oddly red-colored dog from an equally odd pet adoption fair in New York's Central Park run by Bridwell (John Cleese). As in the book, Emily loves Clifford so much that the tiny puppy grows significantly overnight – to 10 feet long. An evil corporation that has continually failed at engineering larger animals sees Clifford and wants to study him to learn the secret. When they claim Clifford is theirs, the fight is on to keep Clifford with Emily, engaging the entire neighborhood to help stop the evil plot.

The film opened in theaters and on Paramount+ on November 10th, 2021.
