Ladies and Gentleman, this is what I've been wanting to hear since I knew there was going to be a Star Wars Episode VII. John Williams wants to do the music for the new movie. One thing that all people can agree on is that John Williams music made Star Wars memorable. And as someone who has spent their life loving and being involved with music, nothing makes me happier than hearing that he wants to continue his legend, and continue to make Star Wars music what it is.
Nothing is set in stone yet, Williams had this to say at a recent concert:
"We're about to play Star Wars and each time we do it reminds me of the first time we played it decades ago.... Now we're hearing of a new set of movies coming in 2015, 2016...so I need to make sure I'm still ready to go in a few years for what I hope would be continued work with George."..
You'll notice in the source another composer mentioned for this, but hopefully they won't write off Mr. Williams for this one.
Since all these changes are taking place I think it will be nice for fans to have some part of consistency to look forward to. I can not see any other composer even thinking about touching this. John Williams has a type of magical touch when it comes to Star Wars. Everything he writes has such emotion and passion. And the theme of Star Wars has gone down to be one of the most recognizable themes ever.
I cannot stress enough how happy this would make me. I mean we are talking about the man who composed The Imperial March. I can only imagine what would be in store for our ears if John Williams composed Episode VII.
I'll just leave this right here and let that sink in....
