See John Williams compose new music while J.J. Abrams talks about Star Wars

12.11.2015

Bill Whitaker has a piece on 60 Minutes where he speaks with J.J. Abrams about (big surprise) STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, and he was goodly enough to share a preview of that with CBSN'S Contessa Brewer. Now, what makes this preview especially special, is that he's at the scoring sessions with John freakin' Williams, and you can actually hear some of the new music being composed for the film! Yes, it's just as great as it sounds! What are you waiting for?!?

Regardless of what you think about the end result of the prequels, I think we can all agree that John Williams delivered some amazing music for those films; arguably the widest margin between the strength of a film's score and the weakness of it script. In any case, I never would have imagined that the maestro would return to this universe and the fact we'll have (at least) one more STAR WARS score from him makes me a kid again. Also, I just have to point out that I LOVE that Abrams is the kind of guy who's recording this with his phone because he's such a fan. Right there with ya, man! Now who's ready for some leitmotif?!?

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS hits theaters in 7 days!

I think John Williams elevates any movie he is involved with. Who is the heir apparent to his throne? Giaccino? Clint mansel?

There will come a time when he is gone and a new composer will write the music, but I'm not looking forward to it.

It seems to me that the script is probably the only place this movie could go wrong. Let's hope they gave it there best shot at that level b/c this is looking and sounding (thanks John Williams) great!

I don't think the scripts have ever really been the strongpoint of Star Wars, especially not the original (and obviously not the prequels.)

John Williams is the epitome of badassedness. This guy has had such an amazing career. I really cannot think of any other composer that has so many memorable themes. Love this guy.
