Hollywood certainly loves to capitalize on proven talent. If you think actors like Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, and Dwayne Johnson are overused in Hollywood, I suggest you also take a peak behind the camera and to the composers. While the business has always had its compositional darlings, one star that’s been on the rise for some time has been Michael Giacchino.

Giacchino got his start in the video game industry in the late-1990s, and got his first big break with J.J. Abrams’ Lost and 2005’s The Incredibles. He hit a whole new level of success with his work on the 2009 Star Trek reboot. The composer has certainly kept himself pretty darn busy. In the past couple months alone, he’s had his name attached to two of the biggest films of the year: Doctor Strange and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Of course, those weren’t his only big hits, a couple years back, he also lent his talents to the mammothly successful Jurassic World.

Well, fans of that film will be happy to hear that Giacchino is set to return to the franchise with Jurassic World 2, as reported by THR. It seems that he’s making quite the habit of picking up where John Williams left off, and those are no small shoes to fill.

Those aren’t the only big films on his plate. In addition to Jurassic World, he also has films like Spider-Man: Homecoming, War for the Planet of the Apes, and The Incredibles 2 to work on.

Between the work with Marvel, Disney, Universal, and Fox, I’d say Giacchino’s fingerprints have been largely set in the industry. 

Are you looking forward to seeing what he’ll bring to Jurassic World 2? Let us know your thoughts down below!
