When I think of a Star Wars movie one of the first things that comes to mind is that catchy startup tune. Without John Williams, Star Wars would not be the same and JJ Abrams agrees. As with the original cast, JJ has been talking with John Williams about scoring the next set of Star Wars films.
“We’ve certainly talked about that, and I’m happy and willing to do it,” says Williams. “J.J. Abrams, who will be the director, seems excited about the idea. I have to say that J.J. is a much younger man than I, but I will try to keep up with him as much as I can.”
“We now have the benefit of all this computer simulation and technical work that wasn’t even possible 20 or 25 years ago,” continued Williams, when asked about the new film in general.
“I don’t know how hands-on George Lucas will be — I suspect he will be to some degree — but I can only imagine how excited he must be, to have a director like J.J. have all these tools at his fingertips to produce something even more adventurous technologically. I can’t wait to see what he will do with it.”
