Composer Mark Mancina on the Music of Moana, Tarzan, and The Lion King
Dan Heaton

It’s easy to take movie scores for granted, yet they’re so important to a successful film. When the music clicks, everything feels right. This point especially applies to animated films, where songs combine with images to connect with our emotions. A perfect example is Disney’s Moana, which offers tunes that fit comfortably within the story. The music gives important plot details and sticks with us long after credits have rolled. Composer Mark Mancina has composed numerous scores that fit this mold. In diverse films like Moana, Speed, and August Rush, his work has the right touch.
