Is it "true" the main theme was composed by HZ? Or is this just an urban legend. Considering this is a JB production; i imagine HZ was at the very least considered and possible involved in some way? Thanks!
I have a question, which was in my mind for a long time: didn't they consider Ramin Djawadi for this one? Because Prince of Persia would be a great fit for him, considering he is part iranian (persian).
Djawadi grew up in Germany, didn't he? Just because he has Iranian roots doesn't automatically make him the right choice. Correct me if I'm wrong but I THINK that the Persia shown in this movie probably has some slight differences to modern-day Iran. ;)
You are, of course, right in every way, but I believe he knows a lot about iranian culture. I was just wondering, nothing more.

Disney's composer choice was wrong. Music Composer should be Stuart Chatwood & Hans Zimmer.
I advice everybody to listen of Stuart Chatwood's Prince of Persia game-series soundtrack compositions from Youtube.
This is an amazing score. Too bad for you that you haven't listened to the soudtrack well. Not every score should have epic tracks. NO! Because if it has them, the score would be boring!!!! This score has everything that every film score should have; relaxed, serious, dramatic and epic tracks among others which means this score is very complete and selective. Like Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Not every movie should have Hans Zimmer in charge of the music department (even I'm a fan of him). Besides, Zimmer wouldn't work with Chatwood because he only works with his disciples and former disciples such as Henry Jackman, Steve Jablosnky, Ramin Djawadi and even Harry Gregson-Williams himself. This was the right decision from Disney to put Harry Gregson-Williams in charge of the music because he's very well prepared for every film genre including this one and because he has experience working in the videogame industry if you didn't know and that's reason why I think it was the right decision for this movie. And by the way, the music from the game is good, but not that good. For the game, I always thought that Chatwood wasn't the right choice as a composer and Ubisoft should have included Michael Giacchino, Jeremy Soule or even Gregson-Williams because of their previous works in the videogame industry. Also, Chatwood only works on videogames, not in films.
@pureocean Actually, it is a great score; but not everyone has the same taste...are you sure you listened carefully :) I have to say, it is one of the best scores Harry Gregson-Williams has produced since Narnia. I think it deserves much praise!
I've been listening to the soundtrack over and over again and I can admitt that I love it!!
There are a lot of things that identify HGW as its composer - like it's own mark on the music, Hans has it as well - and there are some particular themes I love! There is one in particularlly that reminds me something though I can't quite put my finger on it!
However, loved the soundtrack.
I've heard it before watching the movie - a thing I like a lot - and I couldn't wait till I watched the movie and give my opinion about it as a whole.
As for the movie; well, I'm not a fan of the video-game - never played it before - but I loved the movie every much! It's very Disney and Jerry, if you know what I mean, and adding this wonderful score gives an epic dimension to the movie.
Great Jobs Harry and thank you for the amazing music you've created... ^_^
I've already watched the movie...twice to be exact:) plan to watch it again for the third time...I love Dastan and Tamina tandem and the best track for me was when Dastan and Tamina escape...two thumbs up for the whole casts...one of the best movie i ever watched..:))
Sounds really good so far! The movie was awesome! Haven't had time to listen to the whole thing yet, but does anyone know if the music when Dastan uses The Dagger for the first time is on here? Possibly The Dagger's theme? Maybe it's "This Is No Ordinary Dagger?" Loved the music at that part, awesome.
Well I just saw PoP and the movie and the score blew my socks off!! Thanks so much Harry, I've been waiting for a really good score from you since Prince Caspian! Shrek 4 is great as well! Keep up the good work and dont think twice about doing a PoP sequel if there is one!!!
Miles, I think what that person is referring to is the similarities between a small portion of the theme that starts around 0:37 in track 1 of Prince of Persia, and the love theme in Mummy Returns. Though it's too small to be called "Copy".
I too agree with HGW4, this is one of the better Gregson-Williams in recent years. I don't consider myself a hardcore Gregson-Williams fan, but I even enjoyed the bits that many people are calling "generic".
