Christmas’ most nefarious foe, the Grinch, is returning to the big screen with a badass new theme song, thanks to Tyler, the Creator.
The rapper collaborated with composer Danny Elfman on a re-imagined version of the classic track “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” from 1966's How the Grinch Stole Christmas! for Illusion’s new animated film The Grinch. Deadline reports that Tyler also wrote and performed a new song titled “I Am the Grinch.” You can hear a snippet of Tyler in the latest trailer linked up top.
This is not the first song Tyler has helped pen a song for a revival. The Odd Future creator also wrote the theme song for Bill Nye’s 2017 show Bill Nye Saves the World.
Pharrell Williams is also part of the new flick, serving as the movie’s narrator after previously working with Universal and Illumination for 2013’s Despicable Me 2. Benedict Cumberbatch voices the Grinch, while Rashida Jones, Keenan Thompson, Cameron Seely, and Angela Lansbury are also featured in the animated remake of this Dr. Seuss classic.
This will be the third time How The Grinch Stole Christmas gets adapted into a film after the classic 1996 animated version and the 2000 live-action comedy starring Jim Carrey. In the third trailer for The Grinch, we see the green menace dutifully preparing to disguise himself as Santa Claus in order to terrorize the innocent residents of Whoville and ruin their holiday fun.
The Grinch will hit theaters on November 9 just in time for the holiday season.
