John Williams Will Score "Star Wars: Episode VII"

Posted on Tuesday, July 30th, 2013 11:02 AM by Scott Jentsch

LucasFilm has confirmed that John Williams will be composing the score for the next Star Wars movie, tentatively titled Star Wars: Episode VII.

John Williams, the legendary composer who crafted the iconic, sweeping music of all six films in the Star Wars saga, is returning to score Star Wars: Episode VII, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy announced today at Star Wars Celebration Europe. Williams' grand orchestral compositions for Star Wars are among the most beloved and recognizable in movie history, from the classic "Main Title" theme introduced in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope to the ominous "Imperial March" from Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back to the stirring "Duel of the Fates" from the prequel trilogy.

This is a no-brainer announcement, given John Williams' connection to the Star Wars saga and his skill in crafting movie scores. Most fans would agree that the movies would not have the same impact if not for the incredible music that he contributed to them, and I can't imagine any other composer being able to do the job. Just hearing the background music in the video makes me want to stop working and watch the movies again!
