Michael Giacchino Soundworks

Briefly: Michael Giacchino just can’t quit the world of Brad Bird. The Oscar-winning composer has written the music for every Bird film except The Iron Giant, up to and including his upcoming film Tomorrowland. Among those is the similarly Oscar-winning film Ratatouille, which is getting a theme park ride at Disneyland Paris later this year. The ride is called Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy (or, “The Totally Zany Adventures of Remy) and will feature music by none other than, you guess it, Michael Giacchino!  The Ratatouille ride is expected to open later this year.
