How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)
In April of 2021, John Powell expressed interest in releasing an expanded soundtrack for How To Train Your Dragon 2 simultaneously with an accompanying study score. Once Batu Sener (John’s assistant) uploaded the files, I instructed my good friend, Joel Kreimeyer-Kelly, to prep all the cues by importing Omni’s house style. I went to John’s studio, where Batu helped immensely, making editing decisions based on handwritten notes in the conductor score. I spent the remainder of the year finessing the files, and pre-orders opened up on January 4th, 2022.
After the success of How To Train Your Dragon, the filmmakers toiled for four years to ensure that the sequel would live up to expectations set by the first film. John Powell incorporated old themes with new themes in such a way that there is a flawless evolution in the musical landscape.
