Jurassic World: Dominion composer Michael Giacchino previews a new theme song for the iconic character Alan Grant, played by Sam Neill.
Everyone’s favorite paleontologist Alan Grant will receive a new theme song at the Jurassic World: Dominion. It will be released in 2022, Domain It will be the third installment of the jurassic world series and the sixth film within the Jurassic universe.
Alan Grant, played by Sam Neill, appears as the protagonist in the first Jurassic Park and has gone on to serve as one of the main characters in the franchise. Despite Grant’s importance to the story, John Williams (who scored the original Jurassic Park movies) never “granted” him his own theme song or leitmotif. Michael Giacchino has since taken the reins as a songwriter for the franchise and has scored both jurassic world Y Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. With Neill making his big return to character for the next film, it seems only fitting that Giacchino will finally assign him his own piece of music.
On Instagram, Giacchino shared an image of a seemingly empty score with the title “2m19a: Alan of course”. The first half of the title simply says when the music will appear in the film, in this case (depending on Giacchino’s reel division) it seems that the subject will appear relatively early. But it’s the second half of the title that gets fans excited, as it reinforces the resurgence of Neill, his iconic Alan Grant, and suggests that the paleontologist will finally get his own theme song. The post title says “Happening now …”. Check out the post below:
Giacchino is certainly known for his ability to create a beautiful musical theme that sticks to a character as his shadow; it is impossible to see / hear one without thinking about the other. His unique talent has earned him Academy Awards for films such as Above, which presents the devastatingly heartbreaking theme for Carl and Ellie, and Ratatouille. In the Jurassic franchise, multiple themes have been created for dinosaurs, the first of which was Williams’ “Raptor Theme,” which provided a warning call for the terrifying beasts. Giacchino followed in Williams’ footsteps with a theme for the Indominus Rex, first featured in a piece called “Bury the Hatchling.” on jurassic world.
While these tracks serve to create a sense of tension and fear, Giacchino could be returning to his roots of bittersweet nostalgia with a new track for Grant. It’s worth mentioning that there is no guarantee that this piece of music, apparently for Grant, will appear again for the duration of the film, but until Jurassic World: Dominion hits theaters in 2022, the prospect is definitely something to look forward to.
