Jenny Lewis - Bolt

I just saw the animated Disney movie Bolt. Like the critics said, it was really great, and not just because it's completely in 3-D.

I won't post any spoilers, but the film is about a dog named Bolt (John Travolta) and his human Penny (Miley Cyrus). In additon to the score, there are basically two full songs in the movie. One is actually sung by John and Miley. That comes at the end. The other, by Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis, is during a (what I think was a) major scene of the movie. It completely surprised me. I wasn't 100% sure it was her, but the credits confirmed it, and then the credits confirmed that the child actress is also assistant director which had me leaving the movie thinking she had that job, though IMDB points out that she is the voice of a character called "assistant director" (which makes more sense I think).

The Jenny and Miley songs are both on the soundtrack which is otherwise all John Powell's score. Not on the soundtrack: Motorhead's "Dog Face Boy" which has a quick cameo in the movie (no spoilers). The Jenny Lewis (new) and Motorhead (old) songs, and another video that ties them together nicely, below...

I can almost guarantee you that she wasn't the actual A.D. That's a huge responsibility on a film set. Not to say she doesn't have the brains for it but it takes years of training to get to that point on a major Hollywood production. Since parts of the film take place on a film set she was probably the voice of the A.D. on the movie within the movie.

What film set?! It's an animated film!

I just saw the movie as well and hadn't been aware Jenny had a song in it, so I was presently surprised when I heard her voice!

I also noticed her name in the credits as assistant director and was surprised. When I got home and looked it up, IMDB did just seem to say she did a voice of "assistant director", but I also remember it being separate from the voice credits. I asked my brother about it (he's a tech guy at feature animation for Disney) and he said he knew who the actual assistant director was and it wasn't her, so if she was the assistant director of something, it wasn't the whole film. Still a mystery!

she did the voice of a character called "assistant director".
