About John Cardon Debney

An Emmy-winning composer best known for his playful comedy, animation, and adventure scores, John Debney grew up on Hollywood studio lots of the '60s and '70s as the son of a Disney producer. While his credits for Disney went on to include films such as Hocus Pocus (1993), Inspector Gadget (1999), and The Princess Diaries (2001), more dramatic settings for his music included movies like I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) and The Passion of the Christ (2004). The latter earned Debney an Academy Award nomination for best score. He made his debut in the Marvel Universe in 2010 with Iron Man 2, and the 2016 live-action version of The Jungle Book (also with Disney) became his fourth collaboration with director Jon Favreau. ~ Marcy Donelson
