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.
