We all know that Star Wars: Episode VII will be the biggest movie event of 2015. The new film will be the first in the franchise since the release of Revenge of the Sith in 2005. Although this is also the first Star Wars movie without the involvement of creator George Lucas, for all intents and purposes, it’s very much a Star Wars movie. There are a few elements you need to truly make a Star Wars movie a Star Wars movie, including a title card that reads “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away,” some lightsaber battle action, and, of course, a score from master composer John Williams.
During the Star Wars Celebration Europe in Germany, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy announced that Williams will indeed score all the film’s in the new trilogy, including Episode VII, Episode VIII, and Episode IX. “Every time I hear John’s music, it just gives me the chills. It’s so important to the saga. We’re all really excited that he’s a part of this,” Kennedy explained.
