    He’s like the Alan Menken of Pixar(except Michael only does the score), because he did music(scores) for a handful of Pixar films

      I guess Randy Newman deserves more the title of “Alan Menken of Pixar” than Giacchino. Not only he did more Pixar movies than Giacchino (8 for Newman, 6 for MG, including Coco), but also he wrote songs for almost all of them (with the exception of Cars, Monsters University and Cars 3).

    Curious why they had to keep this piece of info under wraps for so long. As much as I adore the composer’s music, I don’t see how this kind of revelations could be considered a big deal.
