J. J. Abrams Says John Williams Will Return To Score Episode VII! – Ain’t It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.
During a press conference for STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS, (documented here at Trekmovie) J. J. Abrams was asked about John Williams’ involvement in Episode VII, and Abrams was more candid than usual: Again, for Star Wars, it’s very early days, but I believe that, going forward, John Williams will be doing that film, because he was there long before I was. Fans will be happy for this news, young and old alike. John Williams is STAR WARS, and those themes resonate more over each year. Granted, Williams is also 81 years old, and so getting this squared away as soon as possible is to everyone’s benefit. We all want John Williams to live forever.
