According to the Film Music Reporter, Grammy and Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino will be returning as the composer for Universal Pictures’ highly-anticipated third installment to the Jurassic World franchise titled Jurassic World: Dominion. The film’s production is currently on temporary hiatus due to the ongoing global fight against the COVID-19 (formerly named as Coronavirus) pandemic.

Giacchino is best known for his work on Disney-Pixar’s 2010 animated film Up which earned him an Academy Award for Best Original Score. Other than Jurassic World: Dominion, Giacchino has also recently signed up for another high-profile project which is Matt Reeves’ DC film The Batman.
