With over 50 Oscars nominations under his belt, five wins and 23 Grammy wins, legendary film composer John Williams is about as good as it gets when it comes to film scores. In a recent interview with Variety, Williams confirmed he told J.J. Abrams that he would like to return for the still-untitled Star Wars: Episode 9:
“I would very much like to complete that.”
John Williams has composed the scores for all eight Star Wars Saga movies, so it seems fitting that he return to finish out Disney’s sequel trilogy. About a week ago news came down that while Williams wouldn’t score the entire film, he would write the theme for Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Composer John Powell is set to write the rest of the film’s score. Solo: A Star Wars Story will mark the only the second Star Wars film not to be scored by Williams, with the first being 2016’s Rogue One, which was scored by Michael Giacchino.
Williams currently has more Oscar nominations than anyone else, and could possibly earn two more this coming year with scores for The Post, and of course, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
I’m not sure who would say no, but are you glad to see Williams return for Episode 9? Let us know in the comments down below!
