Melanie Griffith once said of working with lions: "Lions are a really tough act to play with. Not because they are dangerous, but because they are so funny. They upstage you every time. If you are in a shot with a lion you just know everyone is looking at the cat instead of you." See more »
While this movie is certainly incredible in terms of its live action sequences with the lions, I would actually like to draw some attention to the soundtrack, which is not only unique, but powerful, exciting and highly eclectic.
The two most notable figures involved in its production are Terence P. Minogue, who composed and conducted the symphonic contributions, and Robert Hawk, who wrote and sang the bulk of the songs.
The symphonic score is grand and melodic, while the songs in the movie contain some brilliant and sincere pop moments. Who are these two people and have they done any other soundtrack work before or since Roar? (I've searched the web in vain!) The impression one gets in watching the movie is that Robert Hawk, at least, was part of the extended Marshall circle of family and/or friends, as Noel professes his liking for Robert's music in one scene in the movie (to Mativo).
