Michael Giacchino to score Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World

I think we were all a little surprised, but relieved, when the pseudo-retired John Williams was very open about scoring the latest Star Wars venture for J.J. Abrams.  The man seems to only work with Steven Spielberg and passion projects these days, so one could feel a collective sigh of relief when we discovered that the man behind not just STAR WARS, but SUPERMAN, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, and HARRY POTTER (among dozens of other classic films) would return to a galaxy far, far away.  Of course, he also helped to create the musical landscape featured in the first two Jurassic Park films.

You can't replace the mightey maestro, but you can hire a great composer in his stead, and that's exactly what Universal has done.  Michael Giacchino has been tearing up Pixar films like it's nobody's business, winning an Oscar for his exhuberant and oftentimes heartbreaking film score for UP.  Ironically enough, Giacchino is a J.J. Abrams regular, and had I pegged anyone to score STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, it would have been him.  I'm more than happy to see him take the musical reigns of this franchise though, as I'm sure he'll not only treat the original source material with the respect it deserves, but also expand upon it.

I'm remaining cautiously optimistic for Colin Trevorrow's JURASSIC WORLD.  Everyone in front of and behind the camera has me excited to revisit the park that left its mark in 1993.  We have a little ways before the June 12, 2015 release date, so you'll definitely see whatever updates we can get our hands on before then.

JURASSIC WORLD will star Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas-Howard, Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, Vincent D'Onofrio, and dinosaurs, when it hits theaters June 12, 2015.

Ahem, totally NSFW:

Perhaps Giacchino will get around to providing much-needed lyrics to the infamous song?

No hate nor love for this guy.
He's a hit or miss for my taste and I was hopping for the return of John Williams.
Still, he DID a good JW's personification with Super 8...

Great news, Giacchino is one of my favorite composers working in film today. Part of me thinks he signed on to do this movie just so he could make a trip back to Hawaii since Lost is now over, lol.

I'm actually really encouraged by this. Giacchino did the score to the 1997 Playstation Lost World Jurassic Park game and it was excellent! It was right around his first Medal of Honor score and what put him on the map. There are clips on YouTube. Check it out! (Also, wow, I made a whole comment with no sarcasm, no jokes, and entirely serious. I might be sick.)

I never got around to listening to that! I really should check it out. I got into Giacchino late in the game (Star Trek was the first of his scores to really grab me) so it's fun to back and listen to his earlier work.

He's definitely following in the footsteps of Williams.

The wait for this is going to be excruciating.

Love Giacchino's work. This piece that he did for Cloverfield, Roar, is particularly awesome. [link] It's fun because being a found footage movie, the whole of Cloverfield only contains diegetic music, so the score playing over the end credits had even more impact. If he incorporates the classic John Williams themes and builds upon them, we'll be fine. The music in Jurassic Park III was quite unremarkable.
