JOHN POWELL's the composer for "HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON" - CD released via Varese
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Music Composed by John Powell
From the studio that brought you Shrek, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda comes the 3D adventure, How to Train Your Dragon. Set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, and based on the book by Cressida Cowell, the action comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t exactly fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.
Animation veteran John Powell (Shrek, Happy Feet, Kung Fu Panda) provides the spectacularly epic score for choir and orchestra.
DreamWorks Animation opens How To Train Your Dragon nationwide on March 26.
