'Up' & 'The Incredibles' Composer Michael Giacchino To Score 'Jurassic World'

John Williams thought it compelling enough to return and score the next three “Star Wars” films for J.J. Abrams, but it appears the prospect of returning to another of his brilliantly-composed franchises, “Jurassic Park,” wasn’t something Williams wanted on his resume (not that this guy has to worry about his resume, having won five Oscars throughout his career).

John Williams thought it compelling enough to return and score the next three “Star Wars” films for J.J. Abrams, but it appears the prospect of returning to another of his brilliantly-composed franchises, “Jurassic Park,” wasn’t something Williams wanted on his resume (not that this guy has to worry about his resume, having won five Oscars throughout his career).

Michael Giacchino will score the new t-rex footprint in the franchise, “Jurassic World.” The JP and Star Wars worlds are already intertwined with Spielberg and Lucas sharing Williams for both scores, but the pact grows tighter with the next generation. Giacchino is a long-time collaborator with Abrams, having scored “Lost,” “Alias,” “Fringe,” “Mission: Impossible III,” “Star Trek,” “Super 8,” and “Star Trek Into Darkness.” But the connections don’t stop there! Giacchino also scored “Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” and “Cars 2” for Pixar—a company famously grown from the computer division of Lucasfilm.

Technically this is Giacchino’s second score for the JP franchise. He composed an original orchestral score for “The Lost World” video game.

Giacchino said joining team JP “is an incredible opportunity to bring full circle the journey of dinosaurs and film that started in my backyard over 30 years ago,” having created stop-motion animation movies in his of dinosaurs in his backyard when he was a kid.

“Jurassic World” director Colin Trevorrow chimed in on Giacchino’s announcement saying, “While this new score will honor the indelible work of John Williams, our mission is the same as the film itself — to create something bold and new for people who love dinosaurs.”

Find out what Trevorrow and Giacchino bring to the dino franchise when “Jurassic World” is released on June 12, 2015. [THR]
