  1. I have a question about The Four Realms. Were you disappointed that the movie included very little of the original pieces? Or did you enjoy the fresh covering of the story with the new score. I LOVE James Newton Howard but I was torn that it didn’t use the original Suite. I suppose it was fitting given the new take on the story. So maybe it wouldn’t have made sense to use the old music since the story was so different! I don’t know! Nevermind, lol!….but really 🤔 What did you think? 🤗
