A Bug's Life
Randy Newman

Review

From the imagination of Pixar comes the second Ant film of the season. The same people behind Toy Story return for this film including composer Randy Newman. The style of music between the two films is very similar, having that same Disney feel to the score (pre-Mulan). I feel this score is a little maturer, but being a kid's film is still quirky and comical.

My comments about Toy Story stand for this film score as well. This score is good for moments when you don't want something overly dramatic or too overwhelming. It would work well in both a Fantasy of Science Fiction setting.
