John Williams Will Be Scoring ‘Episode VII’

Looks like it’s official: legendary film composer John Williams will be scoring the next Star Wars installment to be directed by J.J. Abrams. Even though Abrams usually works with composer Michael Giacchino on all of his projects, seems like the long-standing tradition of Williams being the composer on all projects that start with “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away” is just too strong to break. (Besides, to even contemplate doing so would likely just be asking for bad mojo.) The news was announced at this past weekend’s Star Wars Celebration Europe.

And how does Williams feel about coming back to the franchise? Dollar bills, baby…nah, just kidding. Seems like he’s pretty excited. Here’s a some footage where Williams talks about coming back to score Episode VII.

While I like many others around the web would have liked to hear Giacchino’s take on the musical composition of the Star Wars universe (the guy did amazing work on a lot of Abrams’ TV and films, with music from Lost being a personal favorite of this Renegade Reporter), it’s definitely encouraging and exciting to see Williams back at the conductor’s stand yet again for a new trip down Jedi lane.
