Michael Giacchino will continue his collaboration with Walt Disney Pictures on the upcoming John Carter of Mars. The movie directed by Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) marks the director’s first live action feature and is scheduled for release in 2012. The cast features Taylor Kitsch, Willem Dafoe, Thomas Haden Church and Mark Strong. The film chronicles the journey of Civil-War veteran John Carter, who finds himself battling a new and mysterious war amidst a host of strange Martian inhabitants, including Tars Tarkas and Dejah Thoris.

Giacchino also will be a guest on tonight’s KUSC’s Classical Music show hosted by Jim Svejda. The interview which is already up on KUSC’s webpage can be heard right here: http://kusc.podbean.com/2010/02/25/2010-oscar-best-score-nominee-michael-giacchino-up/

  1. Actually, it’s only Pixar “affiliated” concerning the talent involved, ie: Stanton and folks he wants to bring on board 🙂

    Disney Films are the ones actually producing it 🙂

    Giacchino rules. I glad he finally won the Oscar.
