Well, I read this a while back in Wikipedia, and I can tell you that there are

plenty of them. The composers from the Newman family are as follows (the information inside the parentheses tells

you how each is related to Randy)

- Alfred Newman (uncle)
- Lionel Newman (uncle)
- Emil Newman

(uncle)
- David Newman (first cousin)
- Thomas Newman (first cousin)
- Joey Newman (first cousin once

removed)
- Randy Newman (himself)

There might be more composers from the Newman family, but that's all

I know for now.

All of them were and are composers as far as I know, so wouldn't

it be cool if they brought in more members of Randy's family as composers?

No. Why do you think this post is called "composer

speculation" then?

Hehe, I guess we can't really

speculate unless we mention composers' names, can we? ;)

No I don't. I wish I do. I am not that good on big composer names. I am only

familiar with the Pixar composers. So whoever this mystery person is, I might get to know him a little more.

Second: Good choices! :D

so, I think it will be Thomas Newman. Because if you look

here you'll see that his "Top 5 Movie

Soundtrack" two of them are [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Newman]Thomas

Newman[/url].


Just FYI, that profile is obviously Andrew Jameniz (director of

photography for The Incredibles and co-writer/ co-director of One Man

Band
), not Andrew Stanton (the director of Finding Nemo and

Wall-E).

Okay, now that the trailer has been released, I have a

question for you all.

Whose music does that sound like to you? Randy Newman, Michael Giachinno, Thomas

Newman ?

I still believe that Thomas Newman is scoring the film.

Actually the

music of the trailer has been composed many years ago by the late Michael Kamen.
It's from Terry Gilliam's

Brazil movie.
Anyway I totally agree with you : Thomas Newman is the most probable choice 'cause he worked so

well for Finding Nemo and Andrew Stanton once said that he penned the screenplay while listening to Tom's

music.
Bye everyone
