Michael Giacchino has been brought on to compose the score for Universal Pictures' Jurassic World, which started filming in Hawaii last month.

The composer is best known for his work on J.J. Abrams movies such as Super 8 and Star Trek, along with Pixar movies such as The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Up, which won him an Oscar for Best Score.

Michael Giacchino released the following statement to The Wrap, where he reveals this project brings his journey as a composer full circle.

"My first stop-motion movies at 9-years-old involved stories where dinosaurs and men were trapped together on long-lost islands or far away planets. My first composing job was to write the score for the Steven Spielberg-produced video game based on the film 'The Lost World, which was one of the earliest console video games to feature an original orchestral score. Having the chance to work on this new movie with the talented director Colin Trevorrow is an incredible opportunity to bring full circle the journey of dinosaurs and film that started in my backyard over 30 years ago."

Director Colin Trevorrow also released the following statement about the musician, and the score which will honor the music created by Jurassic Park composer John Williams.

"Michael Giacchino is a fiercely creative musical mind and a true Jurassic Park fan. While this new score will honor the indelible work of John Williams, our mission is the same as the film itself-to create something bold and new for people who love dinosaurs."

Michael Giacchino's upcoming credits include Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Jupiter Ascending and Tomorrowland.
