Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino has been hired to provide the score for Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World.
Universal announced that the fourth instalment of the Jurassic Park series will be set to the soundtrack of the same man behind The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Up, for which he won an Oscar.
"My first stop-motion movies at nine-years-old involved stories where dinosaurs and men were trapped together on long-lost islands or far away planets," Giacchino said in a statement. "My first composing job was to write the score for the Steven Spielberg-produced video game based on the film The Lost World, which was one of the earliest console video games to feature an original orchestral score.
"Having the chance to work on this new movie with the talented director Colin Trevorrow is an incredible opportunity to bring full circle the journey of dinosaurs and film that started in my backyard over 30 years ago."
Giacchino has also worked with JJ Abrams on Super 8, Mission: Impossible III and his two Star Trek films.
Director Trevorrow also gave his thoughts on the appointment, saying: "Michael Giacchino is a fiercely creative musical mind and a true Jurassic Park fan. While this new score will honour 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."
John Williams provided the original Steven Spielberg film's iconic theme and worked on the two sequels that followed. 13 years on from the last film, Giacchino has been brought in to mix things up a bit – though we hope the classic tune remains.
All together now! Do do do, dooo dooo, do do do, dooo dooo, do do do-do-do, DO, DO, DOOOOO.
Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas-Howard, Nick Robinson, Omar Sy and Ty Simpkins, Jurassic World is set for release on 12 June 2015.
