I'd go with that, especially if they can use some of the more eerie sounds of a full choir and orchestra, like quiet, discordant voices or harp/organ. Which sort of brings us back to Holst in terms of inspiration. Neptune the Mystic is a good example of this kind of thing.

Some Final Fantasy-esque music could be cool to. Sample some songs like: "knights of the Round"; "Answers"; "Niddhog's Theme (Final Steps of Faith)";"Sultana Dreaming"; "Out of the Labyrinth"; "Aetherpause"; "Through The Gloom"; etc

I recently re-discovered what I'm beginning to think would be a PERFECT theme for the Dufflepuds: Khachaturian Saber Dance! I know, it has some cartoony connotations :ymblushing: , but it quivers with the same hilarious, crazy energy that the Dufflepud scenes in the book do. I do hope that it at least serves as inspiration for the actual score!

I really hope the new series finds a musical direction which really makes it stand out on its own, while still sounding Narnian. Creative, expressive and emotional without being too theatrical...sometimes ethereal and otherworldly.

One composer I think could pull this off quite well is John Debney (he scored Passion of the Christ and the 2016 Jungle Book film). The Passion of the Christ is one of my favourite soundtracks of all time...most likely not the most Narnia-friendly tone, but the creativity and world-building are definitely there!

This may also be the perfect series for a collaboration between more than one composer.
