At the risk of opening up more comparisons to Ferngully: Alan Silvestri has been one of my favorite movie composers not named James Horner for a while now.

Ah, this is a tough one... I agree Harry Gregson-Williams might be able to do a good job, as well as James Newton Howard, Klaus Badelt, or possibly even Howard Shore.

Going to be interesting to see how things unfold!

I will just have to trust JC to make the right choice when the time has come, whom ever it is they have some huge shoes to fill.

I feel like Hanz Zimmer was a good guess. Gag guess, Danny Elfman! heh

James Newton Howard for sure. He's got the most experience in writing fantasy/sci-fi scores, and his style is in sync with Horner's. Plus he's up there with John Williams in terms of theme-building; personally I think he surpasses Williams.

James Newton Howard is great, I agree that'd be a solid candidate - I still feel the same about my list consisting of him, Harry Gregson-Williams, Klaus Badelt or Howard Shore

one of these three, James Newton Howard, Hans Zimmer, or Johann Johannsson who did the great music and sounds for the awesome 2016 film The Arrival.

Zimmer is a bit of a wildcard to me... One one hand if I listen to most of his recent stuff it seems like he would be a bad fit, but on the other hand he is undeniably competent and there's definitely some works of his that are absolutely magical - so it's possible he could indeed pull it off.

For the most part, I agree with you. However, I think the Gladiator soundtrack indicates that Zimmer could score Avatar sequels if they wanted him.
