While the films in the Jurassic Park series have had varying quality throughout its run, the music has always been something to enjoy. With today marking two weeks until Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘s premiere, the theme for the film, which was scored by composer Michael Giacchino (who also scored the first Jurassic World film) has been released. You can check it out here.
Giachinno spoke with Entertainment Weekly and talked about scoring the film.
“A big orchestral sound is part of what people expect from a Jurassic Park movie. John Williams certainly set the tone, so I wanted to stay in that realm, but now here we are, five Jurassic Parks in, and I didn’t want to do the same thing I did on the last film. This film has a very different tone, so I basically went to the director, Juan Antonio Bayona, who I’ve known for many years, and said, ‘What if Bernard Hermann and Stravinsky had a baby who wrote the score for this film?’”

An interesting combonation of composers in Giacchino’s words. The new music does sound darker than what we are used to getting with the Jurassic Park films. While I like what Giacchino has done here, I do hope the iconic theme created by John Williams will show up at some point.
