In my opinion, James Horner would be unsuited as a follow up for John Williams. He might be very popular and a gifted composer, but his work does not sound as technically perfect or coherent as Williams. His scores, especially later ones, are increasingly shallow and similar. I would expect him to perform the opening titles with a bagpipe and the credits with some pop song (which `ll sell millions)!
