Having previously applied his immense talent to the Star Trek and Mission: Impossible franchises in addition to the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino will now take on another beast of a franchise: Jurassic ParkTHR reports that Giacchino will be scoring director Colin Trevorrow’s upcoming sequel Jurassic World, with an aim to honor John Williams’ iconic work while also creating “something bold and new for people who love dinosaurs.”  Giacchino isn’t the first new composer to step into the Jurassic Park world, as Don Davis took over the franchise on Jurassic Park III.

Giacchino—whose consistently fantastic work ranges from Up to Lost to The Incredibles—has a unique connection to the Jurassic Park franchise, as his first composing job was to write the score for the The Lost World video game.  In addition to Apes, Giacchino’s 2014 credits include the sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending and the ensemble dramedy This Is Where I Leave YouJurassic World opens in theaters on June 12, 2015.

    I would of loved to have Williams back, but this is a very good choice

    • tonymatthews

      Would have*. Seriously, this is way more irritating.

    love this guy

    • The Flobbit

      Me too. He eschews the great but overused Zimmer horns and drums for a more melodic, musical score.

    That main Jurassic Park theme is instilled into my mind. Classic.

    Giacchino is probably the best choice. I’m happy! One other great possibility would have been Andrew Lockington, but there was no way that was going to happen. Giacchino will be great!

    Awesome choice! Giacchino is the John Williams of this generation. I’d personally love for him to score a Star Wars film.

    What was wrong with Williams?

    • mbmarquis69

      Maybe Williams wasn’t interested. You could do a lot worse than Giacchino.

      • DEADP00L

        True very true but it actually worries me about Williams – has he been cutting back on projects?

      • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

        He’s getting up there in age. Makes sense that he would scale back as it’s a lot of work to score a film.

      • DEADP00L

        Yeah, bless his heart though he gave us A LOT. I think for this movie I might be a little more critical about the score just because of my love for Williams work. I don’t expect Giacchino to surpass Williams but honoring and respecting the legacy is important. At least for me.

      • mbmarquis69

        Giacchino was bold enough to adapt Alexander Courage’s original theme for the Star Trek reboot. Other composers might have deemed it too cheesy or out of place to include, but he made it work. He demonstrates an appreciation and respect for the source material.

        There may be other composers I might hand pick for Jurassic Park, but if we can’t have Williams, Giacchino is a very smart choice.

      • DEADP00L

        Agreed they are being very thoughtful thus far in the production I just hope it all meshes well together. I can’t help but have high standards in this case.

      • mbmarquis69

        I think we all worry about how many more films Williams has in him.

    • milo

      Williams didn’t do JP3, at this point with a few exceptions he’s only working with Spielberg and had been with Lucas (making one of those exceptions for Star Wars, which he has done all of so far).

  • Yay for Giacchino

    And look no further than his “Speed Racer” score for a ridiculously vibrant and varied take on the simplest little tune ever. “Here he comes…” Giacchino’s score tells the entire story without any images or words. Unbelievably complex, and beautifully simple at the same time.
