John Williams

One of the main ingredients to the entire ‘Star Wars’ saga’s success, in my opinion, has been the sweeping and epic scores that each film has been provided by composer John Williams. In fact, I’ll go as far as to say that any movie that has Williams involvement is bumped up a notch, because the music he crafts for the films is second to none. Few men have given us nearly as many iconic themes for films, including ‘Star Wars’, the Indiana Jones series, ‘Jurassic Park’, ‘Superman’, ‘Jaws’, and the theme music that would accompany the entire ‘Harry Potter’ series. There are few men in the business like him, and the question on whether or not he would be returning for the new ‘Star Wars’ trilogy was always a big question on every fan’s mind. Well, question no more, because this weekend at the ‘Star Wars’ celebration in Germany, Kathleen Kennedy, the new head of Lucasfilm, announce that John Williams would in fact be returning to score the entirety of the new trilogy. Hit the jump for more, including a video of Williams talking about the new trilogy and his return.

This is huge and exciting news for the series. While the worst kept secret in Hollywood continues to be the return of the original trilogy’s stars, as no official confirmation has been made at this point, it’s great to see someone from the saga returning, even if isn’t an actor. This just goes to show that the company wants to make sure the series stays with its roots, while moving forward in a new direction, and I’m so excited to see that Williams is returning to the Galaxy far, far away. But I’m not the only one who’s excited about his return, check out this video, released by Lucasfilm, where Williams discusses coming back to the series.

Listening to him talk about the returning makes me so giddy and excited about what’s to come, and you can tell he couldn’t be more about being asked. My anticipation for ‘Star Wars Episode VII’, and the rest of the new trilogy, continues to grow more with each announcement, and I can’t wait to see what this new series has in store for us. ‘Star Wars Episode VII’ is directed by J.J. Abrams, and is rumored to be starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher, as they reprise their roles as Luke, Han, and Leia, respectively. With no firm release date set, many are assuming a Memorial Day Weekend, 2015 release, to coincide with the saga’s history.
