During San Diego Comic Con 2018 it was announced that Bear McCreary, composer for The Walking Dead, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Battlestar Galactica, would be the next musical voice of the Godzilla series. It was also confirmed he would be using the late Akira Ifukube's themes--The mastermind behind eleven Godzilla scores, including the original. His themes were used in an additional eight films he did not primarily score. Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be the ninth.

Last weekend at Tokyo Comic Con, where director Michael Dougherty took the stage, McCreary's variation of Ifukube's main Godzilla theme was heard in the background. Fans at the event were able to get a low-fi recording of the music. You can listen to it here. Make sure you turn it way up:

Film critic turned screenwriter C. Robert Cargill confirmed this was indeed McCreary's work--He was present during the recording sessions last July. Unfortunately the recording is somewhat obscured by the crowd and Solo: A Star Wars Story blaring elsewhere from 0:13 to 0:23. But the latter portion is fairly clear and plays with Godzilla's theme in a way fans haven't heard before. 

What do you think of this first taste of the Godzilla: King of the Monsters' score?

Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Kyle Chandler (Super 8, Friday Night Lights), Vera Farmiga (The Departed), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), O'Shea Jackson (Straight Outta Compton), Aisha Hinds (If I Stay), Anthony Ramos (Hamilton), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), Randy Havens (Stranger Things), Ken Watanabe, (Godzilla), Sally Hawkins (Godzilla), Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Bradley Whitford (Get Out, West Wing) and Zhang Ziyi (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). The film will be directed by Michael Dougherty from his screenplay co-written by Zach Shields. Alex Garcia is producing.

The film bows May 31st, 2019.

It has also been stated at the panel that Mothra's theme will be in this movie as well.

KaijuWorld,
Which brings to question... which theme? Ifukube didn't write the "Mothra's Song", so I assume we're talking about the "Mahara Mothra".

I think so. It was stated at the start of this video that "Mothra's theme" would be featured in the movie alongside "Godzilla's theme". It doesn't specifically state which theme.
