Michael Giacchino who is a long time collaborator of J.J. Abrams has been discussing his preference for who should score Star Wars Episode VII:
“He has been a great inspiration to me over the years… He has been a great teacher to me and good friend and I would love nothing more than to hear more of his music from that universe.”
“If it were up to me I would say ‘John, you must do it.'”
Michael Giacchino recently wrote the music for the revamped Star Tours ride for Disney.
