    Looks like they have found successors to the Menken dynasty at last. Though personally I wish Menken was getting more animated musical gig these days. Having listened to the Pocahontas Legacy Collection, I think his style is sorely missed in film music nowadays.

      He’s scoring the Beauty And The Beast remake, so..

      Also, Wikipedia lists Alexandre Desplat as the composer.
