‘Star Wars’ composer John Williams is keen to work on the new trilogy. At a live concert, he stated:
“We’re about to play Star Wars and each time we play it, I’m reminded of the first time we played it decades ago. Neither I, nor George, nor anyone else involved thought this would go far or in a few years there would be a sequel and I’d have to revisit the themes…and years later another trilogy. 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…”
Great news and I hope that J.J. Abrams takes him up on his offer. Abrams is known for working with Michael Giacchino, but it just wouldn’t be the same without John Williams.
