John Williams: I'm Happy and Willing to Do Episode 7.

The famous composer talked with zap2it and revealed what every Star Wars fan had expected...

"We've certainly talked about that (Episode7), and I'm happy and willing to do it. 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."

"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."

And here's another recent interview with the composer showing that he's still in a great shape.


  1. It's the one thing that never went wrong in Star Wars. The excellent music.

    Good to know it's still in the hands of a master.

  2. Its amazing how much John Williams and Danny Elfman have produced for theatrical scores, yet all their work is unique but still has the "character" that tells you you're listening to their scores.

    Williams was the perfect composer for Star Wars, his music has a depth of emotion and epic quality that complement the themes in the movie perfectly. Even among all the disappointment of the prequels, you still have Duel of the Fates.

    I'm looking forward to hearing the themes he composes for all the new principles...and really looking forward to what he does with incorporating Luke's and Leia's themes into the score, Binary Sunset was just so perfectly woven together with the film.
