Star Wars Celebration Europe 2013: John Williams To Score Star Wars: Episode VII

Outsiders - July 27, 2013
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.

Williams, whose career spans over six decades, has won five Academy Awards and has scored some of the most popular and critically acclaimed films of all time, including Jaws, the Indiana Jones series, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Lincoln, and countless others.

The composer joins a growing list of all-star creators including director J.J. Abrams, screenwriter Michael Arndt, and consultants Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg, who are shaping Star Wars: Episode VII, currently set for a 2015 release.

Watch StarWars.com's new interview with Williams below, in which he discusses composing the music for Star Wars: Episode VII, working with Kathleen Kennedy and J.J. Abrams, and why he's excited about returning to a galaxy far, far away.

Its too bad we can't _______

So many feelings towards Star Wars start like that...fill in the blanks...

a starwars film without John William's music is like an episode of Seinfeld without Kramer not entertaining and I won't waste my time on it

I really didn't like what Kevin Kiner with the Clone Wars music. I just hope they can get another composer to finish it out. Now, Joel Mcneely did a pretty good job with the Shadows Of The Empire soundtrack of course there as no film to go with it.

Its too bad we can't see a CGI version of that

maybe for the first couple...but then when it loses steam (or John Williams goes to the great beyond): Giorgio Moroder

Yeah, I can't see SW movies without his music, or music style.
