Biography

Grandson of composer Ryoichi Hattori and son of composer Katsuhisa Hattori, Takayuki Hattori started out his career as a music arranger for Masashi Sada. In 1994, Hattori was given his big break when he was allowed to compose Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla (1994), after Akira Ifukube turned down the opportunity. The composer continued to find frequent work at Toho through the late 1990's, including the first entry in the Millennium series of the Godzilla franchise. As a whole, Hattori's body of work tends to be diverse for its genres, ranging from comedies like Welcome Back, Mr. McDonald (1997) to the documentary Japan's Wildlife: The Untold Story (2012).
