J.J. Abrams has teased the return of another Star Wars legend, claiming that he believes composer John Williams will return to score the forthcoming Episode VII .
Williams has already been quoted as saying he hopes to be invited back to the franchise, and Abrams seems to think that dream will likely become a reality.
“For Star Wars , it’s very early days, but I believe that going forward, John Williams will be doing that film,” says Abrams, “because he was there long before I was.”
Abrams had previously commented that “it sure would be neat to hear composer Michael Giacchino’s take on a Star Wars score,” but it now sounds as though his long-time collaborator will take a back seat on this one.
As with everything Episode VII related, nothing is confirmed as yet, but hopefully we’ll be hearing Williams’ ear for a tune at work when the film arrives in 2015.
