BackgroundEdit

Giacchino previously scored the video games Warpath: Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park.[1] The score also includes the Jurassic Park theme by John Williams. Giacchino stated, "It was a really targeted approach, as to where to [include Williams' themes] and where would make the most sense and where would we most appreciate it, as fans ourselves."[2]

Track listingEdit

All music composed by Michael Giacchino, except where noted. There are various instances throughout the score that contain hints to previous themes composed by Williams. These include the end of "Gyrosphere of Influence" which references the theme from Jurassic Park, as well as both "Costa Rican Standoff" and "Our Rex is Bigger Than Yours" that reference motifs used in Jurassic Park's sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park. The track "Raptor Your Heart Out" also briefly features a cue composed by Giacchino for the video game adaptation of The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

There are many tracks that were not included in the official soundtrack, such as the music played during the scene at the Jurassic Park Visitors Center. These tracks are included in the film's complete score, which was unofficially released on December 31, 2016.
