I feel like this is simultaneously the most enjoyable and least interesting Zimmer score of the last several years. It's nice to listen to, but it's basically the 1994 score rerecorded and tweaked in just a few places. Those tweaks do produce some highlights especially in the stampede and final battle sequences, but it's hard to think of this as a major effort, really. Yeah, it's good, but we've known that The Lion King is good for 25 years.I seriously don't understand why they didn't do two separate releases like most musicals do (La La Land comes to mind - perfect release). <br><br>A soundtrack album and a score album. No missing tracks, no fuss. And optional 2-CD set containing both.<br><br>Instead, they went with a soundtrack album with some of the score and another song album for whatever reason that is lol.The second half of the new "Elephant Graveyard" is basically note for note "I Was Just Trying to Be Brave" from the 1994 version as well, just with a few changes in orchestrationThis is only HGW's score, a good chunk of it was rejected.Wonder if it will take 20 years for an official complete score XD Not to mention any unofficial leaks (it took a long time to even get that for the original film). TBH, I'd prefer a proper release of any score any day of the week.<br><br>To answer the question above me: Mostly it's new material using the same themes from 1994, though if my interpretation the OST is correct, the hyenas and Timon and Pumbaa get new themes. The only true 'copies' of music from 1994 are Circle of Life and Remember, but even then, they are at least partially-new recordings.
Do we know who wrote what?Is it all material from 1994 or is it new 2019 score?I confirm I'm back from it, there's quite a bit of unreleased score.Well, now we have somebody who's seen it (and yes, it's out in some countries today), we know for certain.<br><br>I wouldn't expect anything official any time soon unless Zimmer wants to release a second CD.I absolutely love Kai’s theme in this score, there are so many cool variations that weren’t on the initial album. Hans and Co. really stepped up their game here. I don’t feel the temp as heavily here as KFP2 (which is still an amazing sequel score).
Saw the film today, there is a LOT of music missing.As stupid as this film is, you can tell Tom probably had fun working on it. The music is so over the top, it just goes nuts all the way through.This is one of those scores that I have really warmed up to since it’s release. The emotional stuff for Alita works really well in context and her “Hero Theme” gets some great development (the way it culminates in “Epilogue” is incredible). Also really love the “Motorball” stuff. <br><br>After seeing the film I think the only substantial music not on the album is “Motorball Plan” and “Alita’s Revenge Pt. 1”. The end credits piece I’m guessing is edited from the Full Motorball Suite.Hybrid, did Lorne actually do a lot of writing on this one or is he just being credited for the theme?We've had this argument before, almost any score can fit in a film. But what separates the mediocre composers from the best is the ability to make great music that works on its own, outside of the film. <br><br>Hans has had a lot of work lately that hasn't been doing that, and it's the reason people want him to work with orchestra again and produce is 2000s, late 90s type of style. Because those scores, for whatever problems they had, they felt distinct, memorable (for the most part), and easily could have been enjoyed away from the film.<br><br>Good scores have themes and ideas that both enhance the film, and enhance the listener's experience. Music like Dunkirk, Inferno, or Widows just feel like shallow and empty committee scores that the studio/directors didn't want too much thought put into. "Ah just write one main theme, and fill in the rest with electronics, Hans, it'll be fine!"
Hahahahaha well I’m glad he got the credit then :DI absolutely disagree with you saying Widows is a terrible score. It may not be great on album, but the music fits very well with the film.Actually, I think he only gets credits cause he is the guy... whistling ! :PElectric violinJust out of curiosity... what instrument is playing when Liv and Ben are running towards each other at the end? (Long Distance Goodbye/Landing? I love that instrument!

Any confirmation about Zimmer and Balfe working on the score? Or they just did the trailer music?

Do we have confirmation that Hans and Lorne are working on this game, or did they just randomly do the trailer?


Soroush2018-08-06 21:18:49
Haven't found any updates yet


Mike2018-08-06 22:07:17
Yeah, it's strange, lol. I can't imagine they'd just do a trailer if they're not composing for the game.


ThePhantasm2018-08-07 00:44:38
I messaged Lorne and he said he's not working on it


ThePhantasm2018-08-07 00:48:40
Then again, he had a recent interview where he said he was working on a pretty big game that everyone knew releasing this year. I know it's not black ops 4. It could be this or Just Cause 4 but just cause is not a big game sooooo


Omar2018-08-07 02:12:23
Lorne was talking about Fifa


Mike 2018-08-07 03:02:51
Not working on it, huh? I wonder why EA got Hans and Lorne to arrange the Battlefield theme then. It's not even a particularly distinctive version of it.

There are some Themes on youtube from the Alpha version (themes #1 - #4) and they're beyond amazing. Very lovely emotional orchestral pieces. Wow.. really can't wait to hear it all

I can't wait to hear Hans' own theme for this game. Hans and Lorne did a great job with Call of Duty MW2. No doubt this is also going to be an epic one.


1232018-06-13 14:07:43
According to Lorne, they are not scoring the whole game


George2018-06-13 21:46:00
Unless he’s toying with us like he did with mission impossible lol. Maybe he doesn’t know it’s public?


Mike (OTM)2018-06-13 21:49:11
I notice the game isn’t listed on Hans or Lorne’s pages here. And I’ve found nothing official about their involvement online.

Wow, I can't wait for this.

Can't wait for the score. Johan Soderqvist's scores for Battlefield 1 and the DLC's were also epic.

This one surprises me, to be honest. HZ doesn't usually do projects that have a pre-existing theme attached. He's done it, but not often.
