Legendary composer John Williams is getting up there in age, yet he continues to pump out high quality tracks at an alarming rate. He’s made so many timeless classics that it almost seems like hiring anyone else to compose J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII would be a crime against humanity, especially if Williams actually wants to do it!
Here’s a recent quote from the man:
“We’re about to play Star Wars [audience interrupts with cheers] 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…[more cheers].”
I know Abrams usually works with Michael Giacchino, but he really should give Williams a call first.
What say you?
