To No One’s Surprise, John Williams Will Score ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

As expected, John Williams will be returning to a galaxy far, far away.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirmed on Saturday that the beloved composer will score Star Wars: Episode VII. The announcement was made at a Star Wars fan event in Germany.

According to Williams, who has scored all six existing Star Wars films and has five Academy Awards to his name, fans can expect more of the same sounds in the new J.J. Abrams directed film.

“Of course I haven’t seen the script, the story is still unknown to me,” Williams says in a video attached to the official announcement. “But I can’t imagine there will not be some references to the existing stories that we know that would necessitate and make appropriate the use of some of the earlier themes.”

This information is really music to Star Wars fans’ ears, after a week that included this casting rumor.

Star Wars: Episode VII is slated for a 2015 release.

7 Star Wars Characters Who Might Get A Spin-Off Movie

Shortly after the surprise announcement that the world would finally get to witness Star Wars: Episodes VII to IX, it was also quickly announced that lucky fans would be treated to a bunch of spin-off films between each new episodic film, too.

It is believed that each one of the spin-off films would focus on already established characters introduced to us from the first six episodes. However, it has not been confirmed at this time who those characters might be and speculation is currently at a fever pitch. 2014 started off with a bang in its first week as the web has been abuzz with the belief that one of these movies will focus on Boba Fett, with plans already in the works via writer/director Lawrence Kasdan (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Return of the Jedi).

The truth is that no one really knows what the plans are at this point, other than those behind the veil at the Walt Disney Company and LucasFilm. Many past Star Wars actors such as Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Ian McDiarmid, Ewan McGregor, Samuel L. Jackson and Ray Park have all expressed interest in reprising their original roles, however, which makes things interesting.

Right now, the only thing that we can do is calm our minds and let the Force guide us whilst we ponder what might be in store…
