Jurassic World: Dominion Composer Teases Alan Grant’s New Theme

Recommended Posts

Everyone's favorite paleontologist, Alan Grant, will be given a brand new musical theme in the Jurassic World: Dominion. Set to premiere in 2022, Dominion will be the third installment of the Jurassic World series and the sixth film within the Jurassic universe.

Alan Grant, portrayed by Sam Neill, featured 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 significance to the story, John Williams (who scored the original Jurassic Park films) never "granted" him with his own musical theme or leitmotif. Michael Giacchino has since taken the reigns as the franchise's composer and has scored both Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. With Neill making his grand return to the character for the upcoming film, it seems only fitting that Giacchino finally allocates him his own piece of music.

On Instagram, Giacchino shared a picture of a seemingly empty score with the title "2m19a: Alan For Granted". The former half of the title simply states when in the film the music will appear, in this case (depending on Giacchino's reel division) it looks like the theme will feature relatively early on. But it's the latter half of the title that fans are getting excited about as it reinforces Neill's revival his iconic Alan Grant and hints at the paleontologist finally receiving his own musical theme. The caption of the post states "Happening Now...". Check out the post below:

Giacchino is certainly known for his ability to create a beautiful musical theme that becomes attached to a character like its shadow; it's impossible to see/hear one without thinking of the other. His unique talent has won him Academy Awards for films such as Up, which features the devastatingly heartbreaking theme for Carl and Ellie, and Ratatouille. In the Jurassic franchise, there have been multiple themes created for the dinosaurs, the first being 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" in Jurassic World.

While these themes serve to create a sense of tension and fear, Giacchino could be returning to his roots of bittersweet nostalgia with a new theme for Grant. It's worth mentioning that there's no guarantee this piece of music, seemingly for Grant, will reappear throughout the duration of the film, but until Jurassic World: Dominion hits theaters in 2022, the prospect is definitely something to look forward to.
