  1. Ethan Anania says:

    Animated Feature with a Heitor Pereira score number 169……, he’s overused in animated films recently, it’s like John Powell, Hans Zimmer, John Debney, and Harry Gregson-Williams in the 2000’s(but at least most of their animated movie scores are memorable, despite being very frequent composers)

  2. John Jack says:

    Do you know if the score will be sell one day ? I can’t find it anywhere, and my little boy loves the music

    Thanks !
