With Henry Jackman absolutely crushing it in the medium of animation - especially his last two animation scores for Ralph Breaks the Internet (his career best*) and Ron's Gone Wrong - I wish dearly for him to return for Puss in Boots: The Last Wish this Christmas. But I highly doubt it since the original film's director Chris Miller, whom Jackman has collaborated with multiple times, isn't returning for the sequel.

The dude directing this time is Joel Crawford, who's last film was The Croods: A New Age. Mark Mothersbaugh scored that one, so it's possible he'll be scoring the Puss in Boots sequel; unfortunately, I was very unimpressed by his Croods sequel score, especially after Alan Silvestri's above-average score for the original. Honestly, I haven't been all that impressed by Mothersbaugh outside of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and The LEGO Movie 1, so I guess only Phil Lord & Chris Miller (the OTHER Chris Miller! tongue) can get excellent music out of him? I may have to revisit Thor: Ragnarok and the Hotel Transylvania scores (and check out Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart as well), but the workmanlike cartoon music that I associate with him just doesn't excite me all that much. Regardless if he gets the gig or not, I do hope that Mothersbaugh is feeling better now after his near-death experience with COVID in 2020.

I also suspect Germaine Franco possibly getting the gig considering her rising fame, her expertise in Latin music, and that she was featured as a 'musician' on the first Puss movie. She would be a cool choice as well, but I'd love for Jackman to further develop the themes he established in the 2011 original. The evolution of his music in Ralph 2 compared to Ralph 1 was absolutely stunning. So yeah, I guess I'm not too sure how excited I should be for this score with no composer announced. &#129335;&#127998;&#8205;&#9794;&#65039;

(*Okay I haven't actually heard enough stuff from Jackman to make that call, but what do YOU think is his best score so far?)
